Do you have a list of recommended apps for Judaic instruction and staff development? If not, do you know of a link that I need to explore on this matter?

I am looking for an apps link that contains information like this: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1a_MeoYNSzaW4yfjfuuFiQFx0t03LBCI... In other words, I'd love to see a spreadsheet whose title is Helpful Apps for Judaic Teachers and Staff Developers.

I haven't found such a list online, so I created a form which links to a spreadsheet that will automatically update when people add apps to the form.  You can find the spreadsheet here or the form here.

Hi Channah,

This spreadsheet is a fantastic contribution! Thank you so much for the valuable recommendations and for the form on which to share them!

 Thank you Channah for the spreadsheet it is so good to have all those apps in one organized paper. I have few more apps I'm using and would like to recommend as well. How do I do it?

Irit, just go to the App Reviews section, scroll down the page, and then click on the tab that says "Add a Discussion."  It's that simple!  :)
