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.
123 Color and its sister app, 123 World, are my favorite coloring apps for children. They take the idea of coloring by numbers and give it an educational update while still keeping the concept simple and engaging. Your child’s task is to match letters or numbers on a coloring picture (in 123 World, a map is provided instead). When they have finished they will be rewarded with a familiar children’s song (in 123 World, they are given information and pictures about the finished country). These wonderful apps display the tremendous amount of time and effort that have been put into their development. The end result is fantastic.
