The phrase ‘curious minds’ is used almost exclusively in reference to children, but I’m reclaiming it! I think it’s a shame that we don’t place more value in curiosity, that it’s not encouraged as a positive trait in our society. Curiosity goes hand in hand with imagination and inspiration, if only more people were interested in understanding and experiencing new things – imagine what creativity and invention there is to be unlocked!

Vaguely philosophical points aside, here’s a collection of great apps for the curious mind – dive in and get excited!

Well, you’re in luck. Today we have an awesome compilation of iPad app recommendations from AppStorm writers and editors – read on and enjoy!
