If your child has an iPhone, it can be all too easy not to monitor the apps they have on their phone and let them download whatever they like. This can sometimes result in disaster! In this post, we’ll give you a few suggestions for apps you can install for them, that will help to teach them important lessons and also even help to find their phone if it ever goes missing or gets stolen.
This is a very smart app. Its goal is to cover missing Apple devices when lost or stolen. As it specialises in Apple theft recovery, they have a money back guarantee if you don’t find your missing device (although the price is reasonable anyway). The company has a track record for recovering stolen devices, with the ability to take pictures of the thief, watch how they’re using your device, and track them. No hidden charges means that you won’t get any surprises when using this app, and you will easily be able to find your Apple device.
Although this isn’t an app your child will technically enjoy, it’ll mean they can enjoy their fun apps for longer, and you can rest soundly in the knowledge that you won’t have to fork out for a new phone.
This is a great app that has a fantastic collection of words with funny looking monsters to explain them to your child. They’ll learn to spell the word, as well as what it means so they can get extra points in school! Perfect for helping your child to learn without them realising!
Mystery Math Town
Your child can explore scary looking houses by tapping on different areas, where they then have to solve a series of sums before they can continue exploring them. You can even tweak the difficulty level to make it harder as your child learns more with the app.
My Story World
A collection of digital picture books that your child will love, complete with interactive activities. New stories are added every single week, so they’ll never run out of fun things to do and read! Stories such as Little Red Riding Hood and Pajanimals are very popular.
If you don’t want to get a real aquarium, this digital aquarium will be cheaper and probably much more fun for your child. However, the aquarium is empty when you first purchase the app. Your children have to draw and colour fish with pens and pencils on paper, and then scan them in so they swim around the app! See how creative they can get and how many different kinds of fish they can make.
Your child will love these apps, and the great thing about them is that you can have fun with them too! They don’t cost the earth, and they’re a fantastic way for your child to learn.
