Mobile apps can improve the educational system and are already changing how students study at home and how they work at their schools. Beginning this school year, students will have at their disposal around 73,186 educational apps that can aid them in their studies. Mobile apps are available at any time and are becoming the de facto tool for gathering and accessing information.
