I recently asked readers to name their children’s favorite apps. I was really amazed to see that there were very few duplicate responses. In other words, there were as many different “favorite” apps as there were respondents!
That’s a shame, because I’m definitely missing out on some great stuff! Over the past week, I’ve been thumbing through a REALLY helpful book and I have all sorts of apps on my wishlist now. The book is called iPad Apps For Kids For Dummies. It categorizes apps by subject and by age range and gives you full color examples of what the app will look like.
This book also has some great tips for using the iPad with kids, such as how to set a password lock so that your kids cannot grab the iPad and get into who knows what without you even knowing that got online.
I’m also amazed at how much detail the reviewer goes into for each app. I feel as though I get enough helpful information to really understand if purchasing the app makes sense for my family. While apps tend not to be very expensive purchases, they most definitely can add up, and throwing away $1.99 stops sitting well with you after you do it a few times!
iPad Apps For Kids For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)) is bargain priced on Amazon at just $11.29. It will help you save at least that much money on apps that turn out to be duds, and it will show you tons of apps you’ve never heard of but that you will want to purchase!
How do you find apps for your kids? Read blog reviews? Rely on recommendations from friends? Stumble upon them in the iTunes store?
