A GREAT site the Edutech has put together here - tons of resources focused on the iOS platform.
In 1996, the founders of EducationWorld recognized the need to create a home for educators on the Internet, a place where teachers could gather and share ideas. They wanted to create a complete online resource that educators could visit each day to find high-quality lesson plans and research materials.
eduTecher was founded in late 2007 as a way to keep track of the growing number of web tools that could be used in the classroom setting. The website’s mission is to help educators and schools around the world effectively integrate technology and web tools into the classroom.
Found this while searching for Apps - a Google Docs spreadsheet that lists Apps specifically for the iPad. There was no other identifying info to give credit for this information.
These pages include free or almost free apps for K-12 teachers and students.
