App Friday: Apps for the World Around Us

by Moms With Apps on August 23, 2012

Welcome to App Friday, a weekly promotion featuring apps at free and special prices. The month of August highlights Back to School themes, and today you’ll find apps for science, socialization, travel and the environment. The “back to school” experience is never perfect, and nor is this App Friday. We had a few glitches with the grid this week, so I’ll feature the apps right here on the blog until our system is back on track. Thank you for joining us!

Participating Apps for August 24th

Click the links to read the app store descriptions. Please note that some apps have purchase modules embedded within the app, or “In App Purchase” (understand those features before making your app available in the home or classroom). Most deals revert back to regular pricing by 8pm US Pacific Time on Friday, unless extended by the developer. If you like an app, please consider leaving a review.

Travel, History and Adventure

Science and Environment

Socialization (language, routines & activities)

Facebook Party Schedule

The Kids’ App Community joins together every week to share free deals and app news. Join us on Facebook at 10:00 am Paris and 10:00am San Francisco time for the parties. On August 24th, Esther of Heppi Apps will be hosting our Global Kick Off. Next, Karen of Treasure Kai will be hosting from the USA. To attend, visit App Friday on Facebook, and view “Post By Others” to see the conversation.
