If you are a parent with small children, you need to be careful with your kids and electronics. If you find yourself asking questions like what is a good educational app for my child? What is an app I can let my kids use to help with his math? Then this might be the app you need.
Apps Playground, the UK-based children’s app reviews site, has released its first e-book for iPad, offering parents a guide to the best iPad apps from 2013.
Apps Playground’s 100 Best iPad Apps for Kids: 2013 Edition is available in iTunes and breaks down the site’s favorite apps of last year by category: Creative, Education, Stories, Playful and Games. The e-book aims to provide an accessible guide to apps for iPad-owning parents, including explaining their prices clearly and, if they use in-app purchases, how those work and how much they cost.
“More parents than ever own an iPad and are sharing it with their children, and they’re keen to ensure that the apps they download are entertaining, educational and trustworthy,” says Apps Playground co-founder Alice Whitaker. “We’ve worked hard to curate a collection blending familiar characters and brands with some of the hidden gems of the App Store that parents may not have come across before. And they’ve all been tested by two of the toughest reviewers we know: our two sons!”
“There are a huge number of children’s apps available for iPad, so we hope this book will help parents and carers find the gems that will delight their children, from creativity tools and inventive storytelling through to educational apps and playful digital toys,” says Apps Playground co-founder Stuart Dredge.
