The Smarter Way to Find
Smarter Kids Apps
Our review library will make it easier than ever for you to find the best kids iPad apps for your child.
Unlike other app review sites, our reviews include both:
- A video of the app (1-3 minutes)
Combined you will have an excellent idea if the an app is right for your child.
Plus, our reviews focus on apps that are both educational and fun. So, there is added value in downloading these apps.
To save time, you may want to watch the videos with your child (depending on the age of your child, of course). After seeing a video, your kid can tell you if they want it.
Clicking on the "Available on the AppStore" button will take you to the Apple store, where you can read the sales copy from the developer and view a couple of screen shots.
While many apps for kids are free, a free app is often a lite version of the complete app. To get more features of an app requires an "in-app purchase."
As an Apple affiliate, we receive a small percentage of sales when you buy via our App Store download button. Of course, we hope you decide to purchase apps using our site, and thank you, if you do.
A Word of Caution About
Sometimes children can be tempted to get additional apps and unknowingly make an
in-app purchase. While Apple tries to stop this from happening, unwanted purchases are still made.
To prevent unwanted in-app purchases, please take the following steps::
1. On the Home Screen of your iPad, click on
the Settings icon.
2. From the column on the left, select "General."
3. From the column on the right, select "Restrictions."
4. On the top of the new page select "Enable Restrictions."
5. A pop-up will appear where you must set a passcode. Plese do not forget this passcode!
Enter your passcode. You will be asked to type
it in twice.
6. A new page will list many options when it comes to restricting the use of your iPad.
Find the "Installing Apps" row and make sure
the button is on. This will prevent your child from making any in-app purchases.
Note: The steps to prevent in-app purchases
are similar on the iPhone, except there is only one column.
In addition, you should explore the different restrictions you can enable on your iPad as
you have the option to prevent your child from accessing the Internet without your approval,
viewing inappropriate content using ratings on sites like iTunes and/or YouTube, and more.
