Android Play Store on Chromebooks

I am so enthusiastic about this recent post on the Google Chrome blog:

Play Store

This is a fantastic step forward for Chromebooks in the classroom. The teachers I work with are generally very positive about having Chromebooks and using them instructionally. However, there have been some limitations, especially in secondary education when it comes to simulations and specialized practice (particularly in Science)- as well as video recording and editing. Allowing Chromebooks to access the Google Play Store for Android and run the content will make these devices an even better choice for classrooms.  The device will be so much more robust and make it a great creation and learning focused device.

What apps are you most looking forward to using in classrooms on Chromebooks?
