Google focuses on Education with new Play store

1Just like Apple did, today Google is launches its educational app store today and is advocating for developers to build new apps aimed at this audience. Unlike the normal Store, all apps that want to be featured in the Google Play for Education store will have to get approval from a reviewer and educator, who will also judge the app’s subject and grade level.

The teachers will be able to easily purchase and install apps in bulk, making it easy to distribute them across an entire classroom or school’s stock of tablets. We expect to soon have videos and educational content aside from apps as well Google assures us, though it’ll all revolve around tablet use for now. This reminds us more about our locally developed apps like brainshare, feel free to check it out.
