  • The Three Little Pigs (£3.99)

  • Cinderella (£3.99)

  • Bizzy Bear on the Farm (£2.49)

follow url These apps are interactive story books from Nosy Crow (make sure you get the right versions!). They are recommended for children 3 years and above. They get rave reviews. Here’s what our Grannynetters have to say:

go here “Each screen can be tipped to enlarge the picture or change the perspective and little blue spots appear which, when touched make the characters speak. The speech is accompanied by the text in speech bubbles. The child can help the wolf to blow the house down and on the farm do such things as make the cows moo, round up the sheep and feed flies to hungry nestlings. I can honestly say I haven’t been so impressed with a publication for a long time. I’ve had to ration GS’s use as he loves it so much.” ENID


  • Soundtouch Lite (free)

follow Soundtouch is aimed at toddlers and young children. It contains 180 sounds and images of animals, vehicles and musical instruments.  Read what our Grannynetters say:

  • ABC Pocket Phonics Lite (free)

ثنائي القانونية تداول الخيارات فينا This app was recommended to us by a school teacher. It teaches the basics of reading and writing. It is the only iphone application that follows the UK’s national curriculum. It was designed by teachers who use phonics to teach children to read. It is primarily aimed at pre-school kids and those aged up to 7 years old.


  • Talking Tom Cat (free)

get link Tom is your pet cat that responds to your touch and repeats everything you say with a funny voice. Enjoy hours of fun and laughter with Tom. What our Grannynetters say:


http://1conn.com/search/web/page/3/?s=web “Have you tried downloading Talking Tom on an iPhone or iPad? That will keep your two, and you, busy for hours. You have to see it to appreciate it.” ENID


  • Grow your Garden (£0.69)

Grow your garden is great for early schoolers. It makes learning maths easy and fun with interactive arithmetic puzzles. It takes a little while to get the hang of it but once you work out you need to use the correct watering cans to make up the water drops on each plant and fill up the right number of drops, it’s a great way of getting young children to do simple maths.


  • Angry Birds (free)

Love it or hate, Angry Birds is a worldwide phenomenon. You can now also get the board game (which we can recommend!) and other derivatives. This app is great for children of all ages from about 4 years old upwards. There are a number of different Angry Birds ‘scenes’ you can download for free too eg Space. Sometimes a bit of frivolous fun doesn’t hurt?


  • Thomas & Friends: Engine Activities (free)

Tap into the fun of Thomas & Friends with this interactive app. Probably best for 3 years plus, little engineers will be entertained for hours as they play with puzzles, colouring pages and matching games.


  • MementoBox (£2.49)

This is a great app for besotted new grannies; mementobox is a baby journal app. Keen grannies can use the app to record baby’s arrival and magical first year full of milestones and memories. You can buy the app as a gift to get mum-to-be started on capturing all the special moments, or you can use it as your own baby book to document your grandchild’s precious first year. mementobox is innovative and easy to use. The other great thing is that you can add as many children as you like to the same download of the app – great for all of you with tonnes of grandchildren!  What a fun thing to share with them as they get older too.
