I recently got an iPhone and I am excited about trying
all the new apps out there. Do you have any favorite parenting apps that you
recommend? What about apps for your children?
I love that you started this post! I also have an iphone and it sure can provide entertainment for hours for people of all ages. I don't have all the app names, but i've seen a few on my patients parents phones that entertain kids through even the longest wait in the office. Some that i have seen are:
-"Talking Tom": I actually have this app. It is a cat that repeats what you say. It also purrs when you rub it's tummy, will drink milk, will burp, and I think it even scratches the screen with it's claws. This app was free but for a few dollars you can have Tom's friends as well.
-A lot of my patients parent's seem to have an app that allows their children to doodle on the screen with a variety of bright colors, much like the etch-a-sketch of my childhood.
-The "Marley application"-from "Marley and me" movie-This app is free and allows kids to throw a ball for Marley, feed and water him and I think they can scratch his tummy too.
Those are the three that I am the most familiar with, I'm eagar to hear what others have discovered!
I'm jealous! I've seen lots of parents with their iPhones out for their kids. All kinds of story time apps and other fun phonics/math games. I'd love to get one eventually! Enjoy!
I have a couple free drawing apps on my iPad...I just searched for doodle, and picked a few with high ratings. The one I like most has a bright green background with a stick figure on it for the icon. My husbands little brothers really like angry birds. There are also some apps that put a piano keyboard on your screen, and I've heard of other instrument apps, too. I used to have an alphabet app that was pretty good...I don't remember what it was called though. If you google "top apps for kids" a certain magazine had a top 30 list on their site :)
