Bilingual Kids App: To the Farm!

Now that my son has started English-only school, I am even more concerned with giving him supplementary learning activities in Spanish. Sanoen’s To The Farm! iPad app is a great choice for several reasons. To the Farm!/¡A la granja! offers different levels of spelling farm animal words, appropriate for ages 0-6. Babies and toddlers will enjoy the animal sounds and cute pictures, and children who are learning to read can see the words in full frases. There is a parentRead More ...

Barefoot World Atlas App in Spanish {Giveaway}

I knew the Barefoot World Atlas app would be well done,Read More ...

Recalls Plus App

We all want the best for our niños. We are careful about the food that they eat, the toys they play with, and of course strollers and car seats that we buy for them. When we hear that there has been a recall on a certain product that resembles one our kids have, we run to check if it’s the same as ours. It’s hard to keep track of our kids products and monitor their safety. Recalls Plus allows usRead More ...

Fearless and Easy-to-Use Photo-Sharing App: outmywindow

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and outmywindow. Before you tell me you don´t really need another photo sharing app, because who can really handle one more (yes, my thoughts exactly!), I´ve got to let you in on a worthwhile discovery: outmywindow. Although in the surface it may seem like one more in the bunch of photo apps, it’s actually quite special because it offers something most, if not all, photo sharing and saving apps are missing: easy-to-use, out-of-the-box privacyRead More ...
