audioBoo

This app is best used by teachers rather than pupils. It lets you record audio and uploads it to audioboo.fm where it can be embedded in blogs. Great for capturing short recordings of pupils explaining, reading out work or performances.  Use the iPhone version on an iPad as the iPad version only lets you listen to uploaded content.

Cato's Hike

Essentially, 'Cato’s Hike' is a universal game for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch to teach kids and young children basic programming skills. The younger ones will obviously enjoy solving levels using simpler coding techniques but the hope is the older ones will pick up more advanced concepts like loops and branching as well as even more advanced concepts like a basic stack or memory!
