Disney publishing is starting the school year off right with three learning apps on sale. I’m super excited about these, because my daughter is forever asking if she can play a game on my iPad. Why not let her learn something alongside her favorite Disney characters, too? From August 29-September 12th, all Disney learning apps will be $1.99 on the App Store. What a steal! They’re usually $4.99. Disney learning apps will be a great addition to your iPad app collection-good entertainment for those road trips or flights to Disney, right?
