Teacher #appreciation Week - Save Money In The Itunes Store!

Tue 05 May, 2015

Today is Teachers' Day in the US, which is a day to celebrate and thank all the hard working teachers that spend every day helping children to learn. This is usually done through writing letters and poems, or by giving gifts. This year however, some companies are doing their bit to say thank you too...

In the UK, national teacher's day is not until the 5th of October, but you can still benefit from this overspill of corporate generosity. For example, all of the discounts offered to teachers by Apple via the VPP store, are available in the UK too...

So for this week, the 4-8th of May there is a long list of applications on offer at a vastly discounted rate. Here are some of the best apps that are on offer:
