i-Apps (iPod, iPhone, iPad) for Kids

Sarah Ann, our three year old daughter, wanted one thing for Christmas this year. She wanted an i-touch (i-Pod touch) like her brother’s. The day after Christmas I’m searching the web for games and educational apps.

Sarah’s favorite app so far is WeetWoo! http://www.weetwoo.com/. The folks at WeetWoo have created an easy to use interface for kids to find age appropriate videos on the web. They’ve included everything from ABC songs to Phineas & Ferb music videos.

Keegan, her nine year old brother, likes Pocket God and Angry Birds. In Pocket God you control a world of islands.  In the game you can reek havoc upon the inhabitants of different islands by summoning dinosaurs or literally turning their world upside down.  In Angry Birds you slingshot birds at pigs who have stolen their eggs.  Both games include cartoon type violence but nothing graphic.

They both love FaceTime the new video conferencing app include with 4th generation i-Pods.  Remember all the fun you had with walkie talkies when you were young – think walkie talkie video phones.

The search continues for great apps for kids. Below are a some resources that I have found useful.
