Chances are some of you lucky ducks got an iPad or an iPhone as a gift this holiday season. If so you are probably overwhelmed by all of the possibilities for apps, and have been searching nonstop. You’re not the only one. The BBC reports that more than 1.2 billion — with a B! — apps were downloaded in December worldwide.
The best apps I’ve found are always those reviewed by other moms, so I thought I’d share my children’s most favorite apps for kids so you have some ideas of things you might like to download to keep your younger ones happy. I was inspired by Cool Mom Tech, which recently released their lists of the best apps in 2011 for little kids and preschoolers, gradeschoolers and tweens.
