What Are the Top Jewish Apps?

The Orthodox Union (OU) has just released a new mobile app that will be helpful for those seeking knowledge on what food products are kosher for Passover. The new app allows the user to enter any food item or product to gather all of the kosher information including if the certification is up to date.

I would certainly add this helpful utility app to the listing of the best Jewish apps that I recently published here on The Jewish Week website and in a special "Looking Ahead Looking Back" supplement. Here is the article:

Jewish Day Schools and Technology: Trying to Strike the Right Balance

I still remember the time in 1st grade when my father brought our Apple II Plus into the classroom in an effort to show my classmates the wonders of Turtle Graphics. It was 1982 and each little 1st grader waited in line to get a chance to touch the odd looking keyboard and try to make the little turtle move. My father beamed with pride as he watched each child get their three-minute opportunity to try to program the blinking green turtle cursor to move across the black screen.

Technology in the schools has advanced from blackboards and graphing paper to SMART Boards and tablets.
