Spotlight Review: Best Kids Apps for iPhone / iPad

October 4th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Travel Apps, Travel News

As any parent with small children knows, traveling can be a real headache. With flight delays, long hours in the car and not much to do, kids grow bored quickly, leaving many of us scratching our heads looking for answers. Luckily, with the arrival of smart phones, parents have a few more tools at their disposal, but spending hours searching online for the perfect apps is tedious and time consuming. Say hello to BestKidsApps.com, a site dedicated to reviewing all the children’s iPhone, iPad and Android apps available. For traveling moms and dads, there simply isn’t an easier way to pack the bag, the kids and line up hours of educational and fun entertainment for the road.

This site catches our eye for a few reasons. First, all the reviews are written by moms. That means no hype or overly glowing reviews, just straight talk and honest opinions. And after all, as hard working parents, don’t we all deserve a little credible advice now and then? Second, the links on the site lead directly to the iTunes app store and there’s no fee or registration involved- which always wins points with busy moms.

The site is easy to use and navigate, making it perfect for lining up a few games for a busy airport, a rest stop or anywhere traveling has you waiting around. Find what you’re looking for by phone type, age, specific activity, even quick freebies. Plus, with great articles and blog posts on hot topics like Face book and how to introduce technology to your baby, the site keeps giving long after the games are played.
And when your luggage is lost and you’re looking for a few great puzzles to keep your toddler quiet while you explain your plight to security- this is one site worth its weight in gold.

    I just wanted to drop in tell you I loved the blog. My wife and I are travelling with our two kids for the first time over Christmas and I’ve been looking for some good apps to keep them occupied on the plane. There are a couple good art and learning apps they like. Another great one is the DISH Remote Access app. I picked up through my job at DISH. With it I’m able to access live and recorded programming off my home receiver from anywhere in the world I can get a wifi or 3G connection. This will let them watch some of their favorite programs and give them a sense of routine and normalcy while we’re away from home.
