10 Children’s Apps to Fill Up Your Bigger iPad
Apple’s announcement about the launch of a new iPad proved to be underwhelming, compared to the hype and hoopla typically surrounding Apple product releases.
The new 128GB tablet doubles the iPad’s capacity, but not much else has changed with this latest iteration. The bigger, but not necessarily better, iPad is aimed at businesses, but I say it should be aimed at families as well.
Most families with children know that their iPad is likely to be in heavy rotation any time the kids need entertaining – whether it is in the car, during the weekly grocery shopping trip, or when unexpected company drops by.
Kids love tapping and swiping their way through children’s books, interactive learning games, and the numerous apps developed just for them.
So, if your iPad doubles as the “family tablet” in the evenings and on weekends, imagine what the new, more spacious iPad can do for you.
If you’re planning to purchase the 128GB iPad next week, here are ten favorite children’s apps that can fill that extra space – and keep your kids happy.
1. Ladybird: I’m Ready for Phonics: Games and interactive alphabet challenges help kids with reading and pronunciation
