When choosing apps for your child, it’s useful to think about:

  • Your child: It has to be something they will enjoy and which relates to them specifically
  • The content: suits their abilities and helps them learn something
  • The community: apps reflect what your child sees around them
  • The context: make sure the children are also spending time offline

The Literacy Trust have a great tool to help you choose an app for your child by age. Visit their page to try it.

Some apps need to be paid for upfront and some offer further in app purchases. Remember to monitor your child’s ability to make purchases.
