Kids take to iPad apps like ducks take to water. Somehow iPads are so intuitive and simple that the devices just invite kids to touch the screen, without even needing to be shown how. That’s great but finding the right apps for kids can be a bit of an issue. The problem is that the App Store is so full of different apps that it can be difficult to find the best apps for kids, and the guys at Apple just don’t classify the kids apps according to age well. For example, the lowest age rating for Apple is 4+, but there are many apps that can be used by children as young as one or two. It’s just a matter of reading a few reviews and trying them out. Just be sure to add a safe rubber case to the iPad, ju1st in case it’s dropped by those little hands.
