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.
In Jungle Time your kids will learn how to tell time with some help from their jungle friends. The clocks feature an animal face in the center, and your child can choose which animal he’d like to work with. As he answers questions, the animal’s face changes to reflect how your child is doing. There are two parts to Jungle Time: In Tell Time your child must look at the clock’s hands and determine what time it is. In the Set Time game, he is given a time and he must move the clock’s hands to that place. Jungle Time has five different levels of difficulty, and the graphics are engaging.
