EducatorsApp softly launched last year with a small beta run that left some teachers happy and others frustrated.

The app service was slow and not very intuitive, but now the company has come back strong with a re-launch of the service.

The app service takes an existing classroom website and converts that into a mobile-friendly experience.

The technology allows you to add and remove sections as you wish and then deliver it to your students mobile devices. So finally you can say, "everyone please take out your cell phones."

Here's the breakdown of the app:


  • You must have an existing classroom website to tie the app to
  • The app can have as many links as you want
  • It is free
  • Yes, it does have notifications
  • Very fast customer service


  • Not a native app, but that means it is accessible on the web too
  • There may be ads on the way, but not yet
  • Does not work for sites where you have to be logged in to use it
  • Interface is a bit clunky

Ultimately, this is a great service for teachers who want to connect with their students in a mobile space. It's free and lightweight, which is nice these days and teachers can create their own apps...

as many as they want. If you happen to give this a try, let us know what you think! Check out
