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.
GeoWalk provides a trip around the globe where your child can learn about different landmarks, historical figures and animals. As they spin the globe on the screen, dots will appear, scattered about in different locations. Depending on the category that your child has selected, the dots will represent places, people, flora or fauna. Your child can then tap on the dot to pull up a larger picture and facts about their selection. There is also the option to view the different categories in a cover-flow mode, which allows kids to quickly browse through the items and then tap on the one they’d like to learn more about. I prefer the globe view, which shows you where things are located in relation to each other and the world.
