Tablet apps for Business Studies

    Our school is giving (very cheap) Android tablets to all our new students and I need to research Business Studies-relevant apps to install on them, and then use in class. Any ideas? We will be getting digital versions of textbooks but I’m really wondering about other apps as I haven’t really got anywhere with web searches.
    I actually teach in Austria in a business college, so although our students are 14-15 in their first year, I’m thinking of apps that are appropriate for GCSE or even A Level Business Studies. I’ve looked into Khan Academy and TED Talks but these are only videos (and KA has nothing for business, only economics).
    There are podcasts like Planet Money, but that’s not an app of course.
    Then there are general, non-business apps like MindNode, a scanner (Scanner Pro, Dropbox...), Wikipedia and of course Microsoft 365 and OneDrive.
    Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
    Best wishes from Salzburg, Austria!
    PS If anyone is interested in an Erasmus+ eTwinning project, in English, please let me know!

    From a pedagogy/learning perspective, a good flashcard app is a sound starting point - building up revision card throughout the course means they can test themselves regularly. Not sure what is available on Android, but reviews would guide.

    Other than that, a news app (BBC, guardian, FT) would help encourage wider reading.
