|Shelly M.: Teacher who loves technology. Avid reader. Analytical. Consumer of many Apps. I would love to have the experience of being an App Reviewer and the opportunity to 'test drive' Beta versions. Sharing my perspective would be so much fun. Thank you for this opportunity.

I am very critical evaluating apps as I feel if a developer is going to claim the app as a "learning app" then there should be some sort of learning element to it!
