If you've never heard of McGraw-Hill Education before, check any educational textbook you've got laying around and chances are it's got their logo on it. They're in the "big three" of educational megacorps responsible for books, computer programs, apps, and all sorts of other educational aids from pre-kindergarten all the way up to post-graduate levels. As anyone who has ever bought anything from a textbook company knows, their stuff is never free. (Far from it, in fact!) Well, today apparently is Digital Learning Day, and they've reduced the price of all their learning games/apps to free.

If you've got an old iPad you let your kids use for Minecraft and YouTube, it's not a bad idea to just grab all of these just so you have them on your iTunes account in case your kids ever feel like learning something. Click here to view their whole iTunes catalog, which mostly consists of math and word games. From the looks of it, individual apps of theirs go free quite often but, this massive freebie sale is all tied to a big Digital Learning Day push they're doing.

Anyway, I think it's pretty cool what a great learning tool iOS devices can be. While this freebie alert likely won't interest everyone, I know we've got at least a few parents who read TouchArcade on the reg'.

Update: I've got no idea what's going on with iTunes today and why people are having problems with these links, but you can just search the App Store for "McGraw-Hill" and see them all. Load up any of them, and then hit the button for other apps by this developer to get the full listing.

    Clicked the link and nothing shows up in the App Store

  • cabuckn

    The first link appears to be a dead link. The 2nd link (whole iTunes catalog) shows it's not available in the US.

      Oops, copy/paste error. Fixed now. :)

      • cabuckn

        Happens to me daily at work haha

  • cabuckn

    The apps and games are free. I simply searched for McGraw. Just making sure you guys were aware those links weren't working :)

  • deathismario

    Both links still say "not available in the U.S. AppStore for me".

  • Bones00

    Links still don't work so I'm going to try searching the App Store.

    Thanks for the heads up! I know this kind of stuff isn't the typical type of content you post about, or that the majority of your readers generally care about, but as a parent I appreciate it. I didn't even know McGraw-Hill made apps, although I guess that should be more of a given ("like, duh!") these days.

  • Deadline247

    For some reason I'm not seeing any links.

  • Harmoniamundi

    Thanks Eli! Awesome deal...getting everything for my school now.

  • InTheAir

    Well then.. this is awkward...

  • midgettosschamp

    I'm seeing a lot of not-free apps by the same developer. Do you know if it is ALL McGraw Hill or maybe McGraw Hill School Education Group? There are a number of expensive course-related apps that are still expensive ($84 and up).

    Thanks for the info!

    • Mr.Ace

      Right! I got so confused

    • DrlRage

      Seen the same thing

  • Syrik_Zero

    I read on the reg' as you say and got all of them for my child. Thank you :)
