If you are looking for educational apps to entertain your preschool age child try checking out the apps by Kids Academy Company. One of their apps, which can be found here on iTunes, incorporates many different activities to keep kids entertained.
The app is very easy for kids to navigate on their own. There is also a section for parents where you can add profiles for each child as well as change the sound settings.
JT’s favorite part of the app was the alphabet section. I really liked this section as well. Your child gets to see and hear the letter and they can interact with the picture. For example for A there is an alligator and if you touch the alligator it animates and you get to see and hear the word alligator as well. I thought the animations on this were really cute.
I also found that the tracing portions of this app work a little easier than other apps we’ve tried. JT gets frustrated when he keeps getting told that he hasn’t gotten it correctly over and over. I’ve even tried to do it and have trouble getting it correct. On Kids Academy he has an easier time with the tracing, however he has to take his time rather than try to rush through tracing something. I think one thing that makes tracing a little easier on the number section is that you have to touch all the fireflies.
Also just a note, the free version that you download doesn’t include the full version of any the workbooks. You can purchase each section separately or you can buy all of them as one download.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any of the Kid’s Academy Company apps for your child and how you liked them.
