Welcome to App Friday, a weekly promotion featuring apps at free and special prices. The month of August highlights Back to School themes, and today you’ll find apps for science, socialization, travel and the environment. The “back to school” experience is never perfect, and nor is this App Friday. We had a few glitches with the grid this week, so I’ll feature the apps right here on the blog until our system is back on track. Thank you for joining us!
