Curating the “best of” anything is a tough job and educational apps for kids are no different. To make this great selection, we used our own experience AND we tested each app with the intended audience: very tough, discerning kids!
So parents: here’s a selection for your kids to learn basic concepts of math, reading, geography and developing self expression and creativity. But if we missed one of your favorites, would you add it here in the comments section for us? We will then do a follow up blog post with a revised list based on your feedback and the super valuable: collective wisdom.
