As the 2013-14 school year begins, here are 10 awesome apps to help get your year off to a great start!

2. iAllowance

Parents looking for a way to engage their children’s mobile devices while still teaching them the value of saving money (and doing their chores) will love iAllowance.

Parents can use this app with multiple children, and it’s a great way to visually show your kids how to save.

3. Dictionary.com

Trying to find just the right word? Dictionary.com has an app for iPhones and Androids that combines a dictionary and thesaurus to help find those hard-to-remember perfect words.
