Interactive apps are a powerful way to engage students with statistical concepts. Several textbooks have apps associated with them, for instance, the Agresti/Franklin/Klingenberg book, Statistics: The art and science of learning from data, the Tintle et al book, Introduction to Statistical Investigations, the Lock^5 book Statistics: Unlocking the power of data. (Even though these apps are associated with textbooks, many are free to use without the book.)
In contrast to many of the textbook apps, Little Apps are not primarily about explaining statistical theory. Rather, they let you introduce theory and methods gradually to illuminate and refine stories about data.

Feedback on the original Little Apps has prompted us to revise them, adding features such as tabs for the codebook, an explanation, and R code in the app itself. The following Little Apps have not yet been revised, but will be this summer. Still, the main ideas are present in the original version.
