Happy App Friday! This post is published from the weekly App Friday newsletter. Don’t forget to subscribe!
Welcome to another special edition of App Friday!
First, we’re giving a preview of an upcoming app we’ve been involved with, the wonderful new ReadAskChat, a digital library for children funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Second, iDevBooks is celebrating EIGHT years on the app store, and of course that means four free math apps for all of you!
Plus, you can top it all off by creating party outfits and composing tunes with the brand new Nampa Party.
Launching soon! A new digital children’s library by ReadAskChat
ReadAskChat is a highly curated, beautifully illustrated, digital library that provides parents and caregivers of children six months to four years with all the guidance they need to lay a strong foundation for reading and love of learning. Each selection comes with activities (based on age) that parents and children can do together, making it an interactive activity.
The app is free to try with one pack of three short selections. A large number of additional stories/activities are available through subscription.

Free Apps for iDevBooks Anniversary
On November 17, 2009, iDevBooks released their first app (Column Addition) on the App Store. Eight years later, they have 40 highly regarded math apps. To celebrate, they are setting the four apps in their Place Value series free for everyone on both the Apple App Store and the Microsoft Windows Store.
Each app uses a clean, attractive design to visually show place values (thousands, hundreds, tens and ones) and how to regroup numbers to perform addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
All apps are free this Friday November 17th (regularly $3.99).
Visit www.idevbooks.com to see their entire selection of educational apps.
