Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. We are in a celebratory mood this App Friday. Our first collective effort to organize family-friendly apps throughout our membership has just been released on the iTunes App Store, for FREE. The Moms With Apps APP is a catalog to help parents browse apps by educational category. Looking for math, spelling, or science apps? Now you can see these choices organized in a bright display on your iPhone or iPad. Over the next several months we will be adding and refining these categories in hopes of making this THE ideal tool for finding apps for your family, and it’s YOUR feedback and participation that will help us meet that goal.
Celebrating with us this week are Tracey from Tales2Go and Rod from Screen Time, and an entire link exchange of happy developers. Enjoy! And keep posted here next week as we plan an exciting agenda of PR promotions throughout our social media channels.
What is your app about? The Moms With App mobile app is a new tool to help parents find apps sorted by specific educational categories. It was developed by Andrew at BabyBinks, and represents over 600 apps throughout the Moms With Apps membership. Features include easier app discovery, adding apps to your wishlist, browsing by new release, and sharing great finds with friends. We will be releasing consistent updates over the next several months to further expand and refine our selection. We hope you like it, and welcome your review on iTunes.
Why is it special? We think it’s the first tool of its kind to give an organized voice for family-friendly apps, and we intend to be the best and most committed resource to help make your iDevice an educational tool for families.
What’s in it for me? Download it for FREE, to your iPhone or iPad – ANYTIME!
