iTunes comes out with new apps fairly frequently. I try at least once a week to browse the apps that have been released and look for some new ones.
Some that look good this week include:
Stack the Countries ($1.99) This one looks like a lot of fun. There is also a Stack the Countries Lite that I am going to try first. These were released June 23, 2011 – so just two days ago.
ABCMouse.com has some apps available. They also had a small charge. I like their website, so I went ahead and got one to give it a try. These apps are for young kids learning to read.
For kids a little older there is a Splash Math 3rd Grade app. It’s 4.99 but says it is a Full Comprehensive Workbook and it’s gotten good reviews. I think 3rd Grade is one of the ages that can set the tone of math for the future, so any app that makes working on math drills fun is a good app in my book.
For even older kids I found Sum of the Exterior Angle. This will help with algebra and geometry practice. This is a free app, and lists itself as adaptive curriculum. It’s definitely worth a try. As most kids this age may have their own iDevice it’s worth putting on their own devices.
Physics 2 HD is another app that is designed for High School students. This one is also free and includes all the reference tables and 10 units that are covered in High School.
