Thanks Margaret. I'm in the Study Advice side rather than the Maths Support side. I've just asked our Maths Support co-ordinator and he doesn't have anything to recommend but I'm sure there'll be plenty of people on the list who will jump in with excellent recommendations.

Hi Kim

Thanks for your valued reply.

Noting your job title, I would be interested to learn whether you have
as yet discovered any good Statistics Apps which can be used with an
Android or Windows phone but not an iPhone or vice versa.

Best wishes

Margaret
