Thanks I really like them- especially as they have simulations for elementary to university and I can embed them in my schools website.

Pip you mentioned Quick Graph, have you see the Desmos Graphing calculator?
My post here has details. It is excellent and completely free!

Evernote - I use it everyday - totally brilliant.

My favourites are all somewhere on my blog - there is an applets list and many other lists here.

My Top>10 Mathematics Websites

WolframAlpha must have a mention!

I really like Explain Everything for the iPad.  Really good for creating revision/ homework videos which I upload to youtube and next year I'm going to get the pupils to use to create their own revision videos at the end of topics.

The app for smartphone I really need is one that works out the mean and standard deviation of frequency data. I suppose you could use the term 'weighted mean'. I don't mind paying if the app is easy to use. 

For correlation and regression, I like this one, itunes.apple.com/us/app/regression-calculator/id339270826 , called Regression Calculator by Charles Vu. It looks good, is straightforward to use and cost me less than a pound.  His general statistics one, including mean & st devn, requires each individual data item to be added to use it. It's not very helpful when I have several 100 items and want to make a frequency table to look at the distribution first anyway. 

I would love an ipad as I could get involved in the trial of GeoGebraWeb. I find GeoGebra very useful on my PC but it would be even more useful if I had a portable version.  For now my trusty old TI-83 graphic calculator will have to suffice when the apps on a smartphone are inadequate.
