Knowledge, Learning, Community
Want to learn programming and reading at the same time? There's no app for that. Apple has removed Scratch from the iTunes store, which means it's not available for the Touch or the iPad. "Its a business decision," says a writer on Scratch forums. "Apple wants to be in complete control of what can make apps for their machines so they ban all app creators except their own." Tom Hoffman is less than sympathetic "considering their own lack of good faith and transparency in licensing, particularly for a publicly funded educational project."
