Looking for some fun iPhone apps? I was able to try out a few from Ruckus Mobile Media and they are really great original apps for kids! Your able to enter into the stories by reading, seeing, tilting, touching and turning with these creative apps. Whether you want to hear the stories by celebrities or Grandpa, some give you the chance to do both. :) These are the ones I tried:
Andrew Answers is a fun story about a boy and his journey to the Oval Office. As Andrew goes to different places there are fun mazes to do! You just move your phone around to get him where he needs to go. (I kept trying to move him with my finger :) This is fun for both of my young kids as a narrator tells the story.
Velveteen Rabbit is another great story that is nice to have at your fingertips.
There are 3 ways to use it. You can listen to Meryl Streep read it, record a voice reading the story (love this feature!), or you can read it. I love these three options!
The same options are available for Johnny Appleseed and John Henry. All great stories that are familiar, and are good ones to share with our kids.
Present for Milo is entertaining for my 18 month old. It's not only a cute story, but you can also touch the different pictures in the story and they move or make a sound. Kind of like a fancy pop up book. :) My son LOVES this! All apps are $3.99 and you can preview the featured apps. They have lots of other stories to check out. The apps work on the iPad, iPhone, Droid, and other mobile media platforms.
You can follow Ruckus Media Group on Facebook and Twitter. I was given the above apps to review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
