  2. My First App!


    I am always on the lookout for great apps for kids.  The Toddler spends a lot of time confiscating my phone or iPad for his own use.  Sometimes, I even give him my phone voluntarily to keep him occupied (can you believe it???).  Then I experience iGuilt when I catch him playing Zombies or watching Dora in Russian on You Tube.

    Let me declare that I think I have found the best apps for kids.  Highly educational and fun.  My First App are classified according to age (starting at 18 months) and each helps your child develop an important skill.  The user interface is great and the graphics are bright and crisp.  My toddler is busy building and matching and my 6 yr. old is using a matrix!  They love it and I feel so good about them using these apps.

    Check out the website for more info.
