This week’s apps gone free series features three interesting educational apps to try out. These apps are free for a limited period of time. The first app in the list is an excellent presentation app that allows you to play interactive presentations on your iPad. The second app is especially designed to help kids develop their spelling skills. The last one is a text editor that provides writers with a number of powerful features including synonyms, antonyms and phraseology.

Miss too many words, and watch your intrepid explorer drop from the bridge.’
