Some good beginning ideas, but for ELL's, I need to know a little more specific info. For example: Does the app require background knowledge that is foreign to my students? Does the app use simple verb tenses that my students might actually know? Does the app reduce complex sentencesespecially adv. clauses!? Last, since my students have hearing loss, does the app require listening to be able to use it? With this list of apps presented, though, I have a good place to start!
