How to get Apps
The apps that come with your Smart Phone are just the beginning. Browse Apple's App Store or Google Play to find your favorite music, movies, books and apps and games.
Just click on the App store icon on your cell phone to enter the App Store to shop for amazing apps in almost every category: games, lifestyle, social networking, and education, for starters. Many apps are even free. Remember for your Apple device (iOS) or your Android phone use the App Store or Google Play to get to all those Apps.
Just use the same Apple ID on the App Store that you use to buy anything on iTunes. It’s that easy.
For the Android, you will need a Google Account associated with your device. It must also be associated with a Google email address (Gmail) to sign in. Follow the directions on your device. Make sure that you've associated Google Wallet with the same Google Account. It is free to use and stores your payment history and status of your Apps.
Finding great apps
iTunes and Google Play make getting apps very easy. Unfortunately, finding quality educational apps can be a challenge. You can browse the Education category in Apple's App Store to find everything from infant to higher ed in all disciplines. It can be a bit overwhelming. Here are a few third-party sites we recommend to help you start finding iOS apps suitable for the classroom.
Faculty App Request Form
Roane State faculty can use this form to request institutional purchase of iOS (ie. iPad/iPhone) apps. Non-faculty requests for apps should be directed to your department head/budget supervisor.
Thanks for trying something new. We look forward to learning with you.
