A fun rhyming kids game that will also improve their math skills

According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the math skills that students learn at a young age build a foundation for future learning endeavors and can be a good indicator of whether or not young people will be able to meet and overcome new challenges as they mature. An article by noted 'out of the box' author Malcolm Gladwell a few years ago suggests that the more advanced a child is when first entering school, the more they improve exponentially throughout their whole education. Engaging children to the concept of math early on in their life is more ...  More

Find all the kids activities that are going on around you in a flash

Now that the local newspaper has pretty much bitten the dust, it's hard work finding out all the activities that are going on in your local area. It's not so bad for adults because most of our extracurricular activities - whether they be movies, bands or outdoor events - are advertised reasonably heavily. Entertainment for kids, on the other hand, can be quite low-key with organizers often dependent on word of mouth to get people to come along.  More

Keep an eye on your kids' online activities without having to look over their shoulder

There's little doubt that the iPad and tablets in general have completely changed the way we think and work these days. For kids, in particular, they have opened up a whole new world of entertainment and education, the like of which we've never seen before. There are apps being put on the market now that would never have seen the light of day if there wasn't a tablet to view them on. Typically though, there's a downside to most new things. For a start, how do we know that the things our children are viewing on the Internet are safe and appropriate without looking over their shoulder every ...  More

Wow! There are 3D animals in my room!

Most of the apps we review here at FeedMyApp are good, solid and dependable and they do exactly what you'd think they would do. There are plenty of apps for business, plenty of game apps and plenty of social apps. But occasionally, one comes along that really takes us by surprise. Zookazam is, without a shadow of a doubt, an app that'll make you go "Wow!!!" So, what makes it so special, you may ask? Well, what if I told you that you could have an animated 3D dinosaur sitting right there on your desk in front of you...or maybe in the school hall? Yeah, I thought that might get your ...  More

Teach your children well with this neat educational game

There are many many games out there that purport to be educational language applications for kids but most are a bit of a let down when it comes right down to it.

It uses text-to-speech technology to teach small kids English vocabulary by having them move objects and put them in their right place in the room. The app 'speaks' in different sentences and gives ...  More

Use strategy, timing and slingshot action to shoot down the Villain walls

Someone asked me the other day what my favorite toy was when I was a kid. I think they were expecting me to say Lego or board game of some sorts. The truth of the matter though was that I loved my marbles. I spent hours making up games using those shiny glass balls with their beautiful decorated insides and I still get a thrill from holding a fine specimen in my hand. But we are in the next century now and things have moved on exponentially. So much so that I can now play marbles on my smartphone. Losing Your Marbles is a beautiful looking and very colorful slingshot game for iOS that ...  More

Eliminate grammatical mistakes with automatic and easy checking

Let's get this straight from the start. I'm big on good grammar. Anything that can be done to improve the writing capabilities of our students has got to be a good thing. If you are a reader, you will know that there is a big difference between the quality of writing of people like Bill Bryson, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and John Grisham compared with lesser writing mortals like James Patterson and E.L. James. While we are not suggesting that a grammar checker will propel your prose to those heady heights, Grammar Checker Academic HD is an iOS education and language application that will ...  More

A fun and colorful way to teach your young kids math

You only have to look at the rise of Asia when it comes to mathematics learning in the world. Their children, for one reason or another, seem to be somewhat further advanced than their 'western' equivalent and they have been dominant in mathematics for many years now. The answer may be to get your children familiar with maths a little earlier in their lives. Magic Paint with Math is a kids educational application for iOS that is geared towards kids aged between 4 and 6 that are just beginning to learn about arithmetics. It offers three different colorful levels to increase your child's ...  More

Find out of school activities easier and realize your true potential

It seems like a parent's life takes a bit of a  back seat as soon as a child comes along and takes up the majority of their time. Trying to further yourself with classes and courses can turn into a bit of a nightmare. Half the problem isn't necessarily with the harried parent though.  Quite often the problem lies with poor website information and badly organized companies who fail to deliver the information that you need. Nurturize is a new search engine application designed for parents that makes it easier to search and find the classes and courses they need for both them and ...  More

Encourage your kids to read with 3D Pilo

Yesterday we reviewed the first edition of a new interactive 3D storybook application called Pilo. Pilo is a beautifully animated and multi award winning iOS app that, while looking great, is a real winner because of its storyline as much as its look. Now comes the second release in the series. Pilo2 still carries the same stunning 3D animation but this time the action is in the form of puzzles, music and more interaction to capture a child's attention. Choose a character, dress them up, play musical instruments and get them to dance just by tapping on them. This multi award winning ...  More
