Apps Gone Wild

The creation of educational apps is wildly booming territory for innovation and start-ups. What my hope is, is that the creators of these apps will help students to learn to think, and to become lifelong learners, rather than filling in the blanks for them.  In other words, I hope to see some educational apps that will cultivate higher-level learning as opposed to just basic skills.  It would be great to see some innovative solutions where information literacy is concerned.
