We’ve joined KinderTown, a fantastic resource for finding the best educational apps for kids, to host a new annual event we’re calling the After Christmas App Frenzy.
The days after Christmas are the biggest days of the year for app downloads as the millions of people who unwrapped new iPads and iPhones rush to the App Store to load their devices with useful and entertaining apps. Hopefully you are one of those lucky people who unwrapped a shiny new tablet and want to get your hands on hot little apps.
Every parent now has to make the decision of how much technology and screen time your beloved little ones can have.
Eddy and I are big proponents of using technology as an educational resource, (within reason and of course using moderation.) But with so many apps in the App Store, it’s hard to figure out which are truly educational and worth the money. Yes, I know most apps range from $.99 to $6.99 but it starts to add and if the app has no replay value it gets expensive.
That’s why KinderTown created the App Frenzy.
The After Christmas App Frenzy will feature deals and promotions from only the highest quality educational apps. Every app has been reviewed by KinderTown and its team of early childhood educators and parents, and approved as both fun and educational.
Here’s how to get in on the app deals…
