When I got my first generation iPad (yes, back in 2010), I started searching for the best free apps to download. One that was highly recommended was TED Talks. More than an app, more than even a website, (www.ted.com) TED Talks is a nonprofit organization dedicated to sharing ideas in technology, entertainment, and design. In less than 18 minutes you can hear the world's best thinkers, designers, and innovators describe everything from robotics that can help blind people "see", to homes made of garbage, to the reasons why we should be eating more bugs. If you have never looked at TED Talks here are a few education-related ones to start with.
