Finding great apps for kids on iTunes or Google Play can sometimes feel like the search for the Holy Grail. Meandering through the thousands of apps to find the good ones can take a lot of time–as if we have so much of it to spare.
Of course we’re always here to help. But now there’s an app recommendation engine that can be a great resource.
a neat platform that gives you suggestions on high-quality apps, vetted by educational experts, based
on your child’s age and areas of interest. You can focus on specific
categories like Arts & Music, Literacy, Mathematics and more.
I found a few in the network that we’ve featured here
before, like Tally Tots and Where’s My Water? Double endorsement from Cool Mom Tech + YogiPlay = really top notch apps.
Beyond the recommendation, there’s a smart “YP Parent Center” icon in each app. Tapping on it provides more detail on kids’ engagement
with the apps, like how long they spent on it, along with more
recommendations on other similar options they might like. All the info syncs with
the Parental Dashboard that can be accessed via the web, or from this this mobile app for Android (iOS coming soon!).
all hail to YogiPlay for making that arduous app search a whole lot
