Here are a few useful apps for school. Recently somebody asked me: “If you would have to recommend me the best apps for school/best apps for students, what apps would you pick”. I’m afraid is not as simple as that because it depends a lot on what are your needs. Leaving that aside I can give you some ideas of what apps you might be able to use in classroom or to do your homework.

So if you are looking for iPhone apps for school you can get some of these:

Convert is a unit converter and calculator designed with simplicity, usability, and beauty in mind

Best conversion app (by caa100)
There was a lot of hype over the interface of ConvertBot, but I found it a pain to use. This app is much cleaner, very well planned, and easy to use. Integration of the calculator was a great idea.

Firs release did not have milliliters (mL). Now they’ve added it. Upping my rating to 5-star, and deleting ConvertBot and Units once and for all.

But please, update the Icon!
     
good app (by wekowki)
missing the very basic feet AND inches conversion. Otherwise the interface is quite nice and the range of units and currencies included is broad. I hope they expand the currencies.

You should be more flexible to Todo’s users (by Fmcalero)
First my claiming:
I bought Todo for Iphone Around one year ago, then I got an IPad, and I was surprise to see that I have to paid again in order to have the IPad version. Now I am more disappointed to see that I can’t not sync between my iPhone and iPad over Wifi nor 3G, and the worst thing is that you need a paid subscription for the online Sync.
Todo should be more flexible and give users the option to sync their devices (iPhone, iPad, PC) for free, and even better give users both apps for the same price. That way your customers will increase more and more and you will receive a lot more positive feedback.
     
Only worthwhile if you don (by needicalsync)
I bought this because I wanted to sync my iCal to do lists with my iPhone and iPad, and be able to look at the same list on all three devices. But this is not the app for me. First, it appears that you have to buy separate apps for iPhone and iPad. That’s kind of annoying, but I would have done it at $4.99 per app. Until I tried to sync, and figured out that you have to subscribe to their online service at $19.99 per year in order to make use of this app. No thanks. I don’t want yet another online account to keep track of (already have too many usernames and passwords) and I do not want to pay a subscription fee for a software program.

If you don’t use iCal and don’t care about syncing, then perhaps this app might work for you. I’m going to keep looking for something else – maybe Apple will finally resolve whatever issue is preventing them from adding this feature syncing iCal to do lists. Surely it has to be one of the most frequent feature requests that they receive?
