First look at Education Apps - Coming soon to BlackBerry 10

By James Richardson on 10 Feb 2013 03:00 pm EST

While at BlackBerry 10 Jam I sat down with George, the man behind Education Apps Ltd. George already has a selection of apps available for various platforms including BlackBerry 7 devices, but what I was interested in was checking out what he has to offer for BlackBerry 10.

A wide range of his applications will be in BlackBerry World in the next few weeks for the BlackBerry Z10 but in the meantime he gave us a run through on video of how the the apps will look and perform on the new OS. And they look real good. It's been a long time since I needed to reviese for my school exams and maybe I would have done better if I had apps like this to use!

Potential customers can download the applications for free and view the content that's on offer before committing to downloading it for a small charge.

The teenagers in the UK may well benefit hugely from the apps. Millions of them seem to be rocking a BlackBerry and with the apps costing less than a paper text book I'm sure the kids will prefer to use their new awesome BlackBerry rather than picking up a book.

Once Education Apps go live for BlackBerry 10 we will be sure to let you know. In the meantime you can head on over to their website and view the current selection with the link below.

First look at Education Apps - Coming soon to BlackBerry 10


I find it fascinating that there are only 2 comments when the post is about an education-related app. Let's see what happens when there is a post about instagram and netflix.

Hey James, enjoyed your latest podcast, especially the part when your guest, on the phone, surprisingly informed you that he got rid of his Z10, that it wasn't for him. That was classic! LOL!

The app uses WiFi to download the content - it is up for the Wifi in usage that determines the speed of the download. There is a lot of content, and some of the content has a lot of images that needs to be downloaded.
Once on the device, it should run quite well.
Please let me know if you're experiencing any issues with it, we'd be glad to have a look at it and fix it.

I'm hoping that something for pre high school is in the works. My son just received a Z10 and I think that an app like this that could help him with his studies would be amazing.
