Lil Sub for iPad on the iTunes App Store.

Another app shout out today for Lil Sub app for the iPad (normally $1.99). This very cute little app simulates a submarine exploring the underwater world. You come across all sorts of interesting sea creatures in your exploration. The app is designed to engage babies and toddlers in cause and effect play with cute graphics and a variety of songs. Normally a paid app, this is available for a limited time for free download.

Recommended for babies and toddlers.


Update: Lil Sub has been updated since I posted this review. They have introduced a lot more interactivity and control over the objects you explore with more sounds and effects. Also, there are a lot more objects to discover. They have also added a learn to spell feature which introduces words and ocean themed objects. You pop the letters of the words of the objects that appear to hear the word spelled.

ABCrumble for iPad on the iTunes App Store.

Today’s app shout out is for ABCrumble iPad app. Seriously, get on your iPad and download this now. This app is normally $1.99 and is being offered for free in honor of the creator’s birthday for a very limited time.

M absolutely loves this app, and I love this app. Loosely based on the Angry Birds game of shooting animals at targets, this game teaches the alphabet and spelling with an engaging animal game interface. M’s older cousins also enjoy playing this app with him. No weird angry birds or freaky pigs here. Also, it is pretty forgiving as every level has a replay button so that your kid can try it over and over until they solve the level.

Highly recommend this app for older toddlers and up. Definitely grab this now!


Update: This app has been improved since my original post. In some ways, it became almost like a new app for M since so many of the levels have been completely redesigned. I still recommend this app, and it is well worth the price to pay for it.
