Adobe Apps for Education

I'm looking for ideas to share.   I know about the free Adobe Apps for IPad  and Tablets, such as Adobe Ideas, PS Express and Reveal.  Do you have any other suggestions for Free Apps to use with students?  How have you used them in your class? 

Regarding paid for Apps: in a classroom situation, is it really worth buying the App for a classroom set of tablets? While I get the usage part of that app, how do I justify the cost to other teachers who don't want to pay for them?

Any input would be appreciated.

It's not really an "app" but it's free...I love Kuler the on-line color harmony generator from Adobe. I use it all the time in my Digital Color Theory classes and I suggest its use in all of my other classes where the student are creating visuals. Did I mention I teach Graphic Design?

I love Adobe Voice, which enables you to create a story about a project or picture to share with students. They can then in turn create project presentations regarding a story they've read, a report they wrote or an art piece they've made. Interactive stories are an excellent tool to use in the classroom. Additionally, if you use iPads in the classroom, students can embed their digital stories directly into other types of presentations, like Prezi. The other applications I love to use on my iPad are Educreations, Doceri. I also use Edmodo as a Classroom Management Tool, where you can manage classes, links and give students assessments online.

What are you looking to do and what do you teach?
