You are correct. There are many educational apps. but who are they aimed at, and what age group?
You will notice 99.9% of all educational apps are aimed at children 2-5. Teaching them how to count, teaching them the alphabet, shapes, animals etc.
The above app I created ensure that several parts of the Australia curriculum are targetted, it teaches kids about biodiversity and sustainability (among other things).
I am planning to contact schools, however, this app is not 100% polished, and I was hoping to get some help and split the profits.
I know for a fact, that schools are actively looking for good apps/resources. Selling educational apps directly to schools and offering a cheap price should get them to purchase apps.
As I said before this is a niche market, creating apps for primary and secondary students ranging from Science to English.
Educational apps targetting schools, is currently a niche market. Let me know if you are interested
