10 apps to use for the 2017-2018 term

One of the things I do when I read a 'top 10 tech tools' article like this is to ponder which of the tools the list was designed to promote. In this case I'm guessing it's EdCast, self-styled as "the Netflix of Knowledge". We read, "EdCast’s app allows users to discover their most relevant learning opportunities, including those from co-workers, internal experts, formal and informal courses, external experts, MOOCs, and the internet." So, like Google then. Except you can't actually use it on the web; you need the  iOS or Android app. The other items on the list are actually useful, including CamScanner, which captures textbooks using OCR, Due, a deadline reminder app, GradeProof, which proofreads your writing. The list also includes a number of well-known apps.
