App of the Week

Make Dice

Make dice anywhere anytime on the iPad and iPod Touch. Create questions, decide on topics, make groups – the choice is yours. A great way to set tasks, discuss keywords and randomise problems. Customise each side of the dice with either words or pictures and use up to six dice at once. Shake the device to roll. (Upgrade to the paid version 69p to avoid ads.)
