APP Catalog

The APS issued iPads come pre-installed with a rich suite of core Apps used across the division. Depending on your child’s school or teacher, you or your child may be asked install some additional apps. Also, new versions of existing are frequently released by vendors, so you may be asked to update the version of an app. All of the Apps in the APS App Catalog have been vetted for instructional value and student data privacy.To install apps from the App Catalog:
