I have an old iphone that the girls use as an ipod touch & I realized I haven't downloaded a new app to it in over a year...maybe longer.  I get so overwhelmed trying to look at them all & read reviews & just end up not picking any.  I also have my own Nook with an android card in it that they use here & there when I can monitor them.  So if there is something fab in the android market that isn't in the apple market, I'd like to hear about that too.  


I am looking for more educational, but if something is just so much fun for your kids I'll take a look at that too...DD1 turns 5 next week & DD2 turns 3 in Feb.  And I don't mind paying a couple bucks for something if it's worth it.  We also asked for some gift cards for DD1 to B&N and itunes.

My daughters are five and three too.  In a shameless plug, I make kids apps.  I have two on Nook and one of on iOS, and a new one coming out in about a month.  If you search for Corvid Apps you should be able to find them.  My website has links to them as well www.corvidapps.com.  


I have a pinterest board for android apps my kids like (there are also a handful of apps that I think are well done but are targeted for older kids)  http://pinterest.com/bangerlm/android-apps-for-kids/


As for iOS, Tantrum Apps is a good developer as well as Toca Boca.  There is a group I belong to called Moms With Apps/Parents With Apps that are committed to providing apps for kids using ethical business practices (no ads or predatory in-app purchases).  Every Friday members from this group will offer free or discounted apps via facebook (https://www.facebook.com/AppFriday).  If you do get some free apps via App Friday remember to rate the apps. :)  The developers spend a lot of time and aren't making much money.  Positive ratings help drive more sales and keep the developers in the business.


ETA: If your girls like listening to stories.  Storynory.com has tons of free downloadable mp3 that are really good.  My girls like the Katie the Witch and Bertie stories.

I'm using these apps for my son.
#1. ABC Alphbet Phonics - It's an exciting educational game that helps your child reapidly learn the ABC by sight, sound and touch.
#2. Funamo Parental Control - It provides comprehensive parental controls for my Son's Android phones and tablets with web filtering, device monitoring and application control.
#3. Kids Doodle -It's a pretty easy to use painting application is designed.

Hopefully your kids will enjoy those. Thanks!!!
