App Review

Given there are over 80,000 apps in the Itunes Store, it can be confusing for parents to know which ones to buy. The following provides a list of apps with high ratings from Children’s Technology Review and Common Sense Media. I highly encourage you to visit both of these sites as they provide a wealth of information on technology beyond apps. In addition, they can provide reviews of apps not listed below. The entire Common Sense Media website is free, and Children’s Technology Review provides a lot of useful and free. That said, I think you will find the $59 annual subscription to Children’s Technology Review a very wise investment. With full reviews – including grades – and full searching capabilities, along with their very useful newsletter, a subscription to Children’s Technology Review will pay for itself many times over. And no they are not paying me to say all this.
