CONCERNED PARENTS

Worried that your child isn’t getting the one-on-one attention and help they really need to be at the top of the class? Is your child struggling with reading or math? I get it. I’m a mom too. I found a way to help my daughter stay interested in learning and do better with reading and math. Her teachers are amazed! She loves it, I love it and it’s fun. I put together the educational apps that are the absolute best – some are even developed by teachers to use in their classrooms!

There are so many apps these days, how do you choose? Some have ads and some lead to places we’d never want our kids to go. All of these apps have been thoroughly checked out and are ready for you and your child to succeed with. There’s only the best of the best on this site!

Have a look into these Award-Winning Apps

The Elements

By: Theodore Grey

“An Absolute Must-Have. What makes this app amazing is Mr. Gray’s fantastic descriptions of each and every element. Concise, accurate, and most of all, interesting. I directly attribute my son’s love of science to this app. I have purchased over 500 apps since I bought my first iPhone, but The Elements stands out as my single favorite purchase.”  – A.M.

Trucks

By: Byron Barton

“GREAT app!  My 3 yr old loves trucks so needless to say, this app was an instant hit. Not only does he get to see the many types of trucks, he is also learning the jobs that the trucks and their drivers perform, great educational value! As a parent of a budding reader, I appreciate the word-highlighting, along with tapping on the paragraph to hear it read again. This is a wonderful, fun, educational app that I would HIGHLY recommend!” – A.K.

The Lonely Beast 123

By: James Kelleher

“Brilliant. Hysterical, charming, instructive and fun for all ages! Like a good Disney movie, the beast abc and 123 apps have something for the parents/grandparents too. My grandkids love the beast, and so do all the many friends and their toddlers that I’ve told about the apps. Wish there were more!” – A.K.

Thinkrolls Kings & Queens

By: AVOKIDDO

“This game is perfect. It’s puzzles are challenging (but not impossible) and low-pressure. The characters are customizable and funny, and the soundtrack is pleasant with silly sound effects. It develops critiical thinking and problem-solving skills in a fun way. My 5 year old loves it, and I do too. A+! Please make more of these games.” – M.H.

Wonderscope

By: Within Unlimited, Inc.

We haven’t seen anything like this before. I am always skeptical when it comes to kids apps and try to limit my kids’ screen time but this one blew us all away. Exploring this pop up dynamic world is an amazing motivator to read in complete sentences instead of words or fragments. It was like a moving playground in our space where we could all explore. My son was standing, walking and even jumping (along with reading) while using this app unlike some other games where he is in some sedentary trance. Highly recommend to parents who may prefer to keep their kids engaged with their actual environment and reading instead of engrossed in a screen fantasy.” – L.T.

Metamorphabet

By: Vectorpark.com

Best kid app we have found. Hands down this is the best kids app that we’ve come across to date. Our 3.5 year old started playing with this around age 2. It’s amazingly intuitive and the designs respond to almost any type of interaction from the user. As such, it’s far less frustrating than other “games” which won’t function correctly unless the child is taught what to touch and when. Can not recommend this highly enough. Wish Vectorpark would come out with more like this!”  – A.J.

“My go-to place for educational apps!”

“As a mom of two curious and eager-to-learn kids, I cannot express how much abcapps.com has helped me! Instead of aimlessly searching the app store, I come to this website and I know that I will only find the very best of the best. With helpful reviews and a streamlined way to browse and search, I can quickly and easily find suitable apps for my family. Thank you, abcapps, for being my trusted, go-to place for educational apps!”

Mother

“ABC Apps has been so helpful!”

“Math has always been the most problematic area for me in the realm of study. It has been the only subject I ever faltered in which was more frustrating then I can explain. But when I first started community college I was forced to confront it and actually do something about my confusion. I started looking up Algebra apps and practicing hours a day. I worked hard through the summer and came out the other side actually understanding math for the first time in my life. I just recently finished my last calculus class and am now done with all of my math, and that never would have been possible if I didn’t find such amazing help from these ingenious apps.”

Steve Jobs, on Education

“I’m a very big believer in equal opportunity as opposed to equal outcome. Equal opportunity to me, more than anything, means a great education. We could make sure that every young child in this country got a great education. We fall far short of that.” – Steve Jobs

When the internet came about it provided an opportunity for people to work from home instead of having to commute daily to an office. The number of people working from home is growing rapidly. The same technology that allows us to work from home, shop from home, etc., also provides us with even more ability to learn, school and educate at home. In other words we can get smarter at home.

While books have always been one of the main tools for education and will remain so, the computer, iPad and other tablets form an additional tool with additional features including interaction, challenges, videos, audio, testing, built-in dictionaries, etc.
