We visualized and analyzed the icons of 158,200 educational apps that were uploaded to Apple’s App Store from July 2008 to November 2014, using a big-data visualization method called Cultural Analytics. We demonstrate how analyzing the software icons of an application domain (in our case, education) can help researchers gain insights into the domain.
