10 Great Resources for iPad Apps for Kids

Searching for apps to use with your kids can be a daunting job because there are tons of websites out there recommending apps that are not kids appropriate. The thing is some websites sell lies to their visitors and you find them featuring apps under bright and eye catching titles while in fact they are paid to feature that content. These sites are more revenue oriented and have no sense of ethics at all. Please be aware of such practices. Always look for the authority of the website, see the author's background , for me I prefer teacher and educators blogs and websites because I found them more trustworthy. Check out this Guide to learn how to assess the the content you find online.

That being said, and upon requests from some of my readers , I have selected for you some great resources where you can look for and find apps for your kids. All these resources have been featured in the popular Digital Media Diet and are carefully handpicked .

2- Teachers with apps


This is one of my favourite app resources. It features all kinds of educational apps and coveres different content areas.


3- The iMums

 " The iMums – Amanda, Alison, Mary and Grace – are four mothers from different parts of the world dedicated to educating parents about the best digital stories, educational apps, fun games and technology products available for their children.

4- Fun Educational Apps


As a parent, I created Fun Educational Apps, a family app for kids review site, as a way to help parents, educators and teachers to discover great apps. Together with the kids, we try new apps on an ongoing basis. Either we find apps that sound great or we get contacted by app developers."
