Free Android Apps: Cricket’s Top Ten Back-in-School Apps

So here’s some more free apps for you, this time they’re for Android phones and it’s a press release yes, but I thought it was very much worth sharing with you. Cricket is a cellular provider of course and they’ve come up with a top ten list of apps for grade school, middle school and high school students to help them do better hopefully. I’ve got kids so I can appreciate something like this, so I figured why not share them as you may have kids or you may be in school yourself and find them useful.
