Favourite iPad Apps?

What are peoples favourite apps for the iPad? I've just started using Team Shake which I'm finding is saving me a lot of hassle with arguing pupils  ;D

Comic Life has been really useful for me, particularly good for making resource sheets for pupils. The new scripts thing is good too if you want pupils to make their own and include key points.

Will download teamshake tonight and take a look. Has anyone tried to run a bleep test using an app? I'm searching for a suitable app to conduct a test and record results for 30 pupils

I use comic life also, great app. Pupils seem to be able to make better resources than I can though

Comic life is great for non doers to produce stuff and still take an active interest in lessons

I use Bleep Test HD, you can set up your runners and select 15m or 20m tests and you just press on students names when they drop out

Video delay - good for getting students to watch back performances up to 4 times

Badminton scoring - really helpful to get students to understand scoring and who is to serve in badminton

There are more but these are the ones I can think of off the top of my head

What's the PC version of comic life like? I've just sorted another competition with Comic life who want us to give away the PC version of the app.

Dartfish, SloPro and Coaches Eye are great for Video Analysis.

Easy First Aid is an absolute life saver, especially if you are at away fixtures. Helps me keep up to date on the paperwork.

Time Motion is a great app if you want to check the amount of activity your pupils might be doing. Perfect to give to a non does to analyse.

Post it Plus works very well for collating ideas in academic PE lessons

Swipestats is a neat app from the YST for doing some simple notational analysis in lessons or games

Dartfish Tag is similar but is my personal preference

BaM Video Delay is perfect for students to perform then watch themselves as you can set the delay - high jump and long jump wors very well

I use MyGroups a lot. Great for randomly putting students in groups of any size. I also use VideoTagger(no gap between words). It tags video but you can create your own templates for any sport you like. Also allows you to stitch selected video clips together.

I've been using sprint timer a lot recently for timing my athletics events, much more accurate than using a stopwatch. Also like using Coaches Eye for video analysis on the iPads.

I'm using an app called easyattendance pro from Pe geeks on my IPhone which is an easy way of registering pupils and saves on paperwork and can be submitted on the system at the end of the lesson.
