Top 50 iPhone Apps for Kids
About a week after I began using my iPhone, I was in love. I had a calendar with me at all times, and I was able to stay on top of my family's schedule - even though there are six of us! I had email access while I was out, so I wasn't constantly playing catch up with PTO business in the evening. Then I discovered apps! There are many apps to help busy moms manage their lives, but there are also just as many exclusively for kids. My children can watch videos, interact with their favorite characters, and practice letter-writing and math. No matter where my family goes, they can be entertained and I can have peace of mind knowing they're learning even while they're having fun.
In January 2009 I began a website, The iPhone Mom, dedicated to helping moms find apps that could do the same for them and their children. Since beginning the site, I've seen both the quantity and quality of useful apps for kids grow.
Babble.com asked me to put together a list of my Top 50 iPhone Apps for Kids. Here, in descending order, are my favorites and the ones I think you'll find most useful.
Faces iMake is a unique app that gives your children
the opportunity to create collage art. The developers have provided things like food, toys, household objects and more to use in creating the images. There are a variety of face shapes to begin with, and then it’s just a matter of choosing your objects and dragging and dropping them to create your masterpiece. Objects can be rotated and layered on top of each other for different looks. When your picture is done, you can save it to a photo gallery or even assign it to one of your contacts. It’s like creating your own personalized Mr. Potato Heads, only much cooler. At our house, we have a tremendous amount of fun seeing what we can create with Faces iMake.
