Guest Blogger Joshua and his Mom tell us about his Favorite Apps

Joshua's Favorite Apps

Sparkabilities Babies 1 HD for iPad - Bottle Rocket is probably his favorite. When he first started playing with it he would play 1 or 2 cards and now he can just keep playing, all the cards and go back for more.

Peekaboo Barn - Night & Day Studios, Inc. is a pretty close 2nd, it was the first paid app I got for him because he loved the lite version.

Hatch! FREE - Phodder was the first app he learned, he learned to keep touching the screen until the egg hatched.

In The Meadow - Tiger Stripes LLC, we have the lite version because as far as I can tell there's no difference (besides additional languages that we don't need). He loves this one and the others from the same developer.

Peekaboo Wild - Night & Day Studios, Inc. is from the same developer as Peekaboo Barn but Joshua likes the barn better.

Talking Tom Cat for iPad - Outfit7, Joshua likes to pet him to make him purr but that's about it.

Working on the Railroad - Tiger Stripes LLC, again we have the lite version as it doesn't seem the paid version offers anything else.

Look Baby! - Deadline was the first app he really liked. He also learned on this app to touch the teddy bear to make him laugh and the butterfly to change it's color and he does still like it.

We have a lot more apps but these are definitely Joshua's favorites. We have lite versions of Dr. Seuss's ABC - Oceanhouse Media, The Cat in the Hat - Dr. Seuss - Oceanhouse Media and Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss - Oceanhouse Media. I like them but Joshua's not crazy about them so I haven't purchased the full version. He does like Little Bella's - I Close My Eyes - Animated Children's Book - Tui Studios which I did purchase the full version of. I like the Siena Entertainment, LLC apps but they're too long and Joshua doesn't really like book apps. I found an app calledMeeGenius! Children's Books - MeeGenius!  which offers books and comes with 6 books for free and the app is free, it's nice but the books are very basic no animations.

For communication I have iComm - Bappz , MyTalkTools Mobile - 2nd Half Enterprises LLC and TapToTalk™ - Assistyx LLC. Of them my favorite is iComm - Bappz which we have the free version of and even the free version is customizable but there is no sound in the free version I still like it though for basic pictures. We also have Speech with Milo: Verbs - Doonan Speech Therapy but I don't like that at the end of each verb Milo says TaDa, just annoying but otherwise it's an ok app.

I just downloaded Infant Arcade: Peek-A-Boo - Iskandar, Inc.  but Joshua doesn't really like it at least not yet but we got the free versions of Infant Arcade: Peek-A-Boo - Iskandar, Inc., Infant Arcade: Numbers - Iskandar, Inc.  and Infant Arcade: Alphabet Creatures - Iskandar, Inc.. He doesn't really like apps where you just touch different things on the screen at least not right now anyway, he likes to just keep tapping the screen like you do in Sparkabilities and Peekaboo Barn. I got Preschool Games - Farm Animals (Photo Touch) - MindValley LLC and Baby Games - My First Shapes - MindValley LLC which are customizable but we have them set on 2 items on the screen and you pick the correct one. Joshua doesn't know to pick what's being asked but he does know that if he picks the wrong one he won't get to the next one so he will pick the other option so he is learning that.  Thanks Elizabeth and looking forward to hearing what else Joshua likes.
