I searched threads for learning apps, but the most recent replies were about 1-2 years old. Considering how fast apps come and go, I thought I'd start another thread to get some new suggestions.

 

What are your favorite learning apps? Free or not?

 

I'll add more soon, but one of our favorites to learn to tell time is called "Tell Time" They have a 'lite' version for free, and a full version for a few bucks. You can customize the clocks to show different increments/illustrations. The full version offers different games as well as options to customize learning from half hours, quarters, 5's, minutes. After a manageable amount of play time, and earning '5 stars', kids can win a fish for their virtual aquarium.
