What’s App-enning?? App Series: Appy Mother’s Day

Hey hey, what’s App-enning? Appy early Mother’s Day! Today I’m highlighting a great, FREE, app for mom just in time for Mother’s Day, and also snuck in some fun and educational apps for the kiddos that ultimately helps mom out too, {think grocery store, doctor’s office, road trip…}

MommyB What's App-enning Series

As moms {and parents in general} we’re always recording videos of our kiddos. If you’re like me and you have an iPhone you may whip that thing out everytime your kiddo does something cute, which around these parts is pretty often! The conundrum….my files are ALWAYS way to big to go anywhere other than straight to my laptop. I can’t send them to grandmom via text or hubby through email and by the time I do upload them to my computer I pretty much forget who I wanted to send them to in the first place. {I can claim mommy brain even though Lil’ C is 3 right?!?}

Enter: Joya, a Godsend iPhone app that lets you send videos regardless of their size to any recipient with text or email abilities.  Yep, you heard me right, they don’t need an iPhone or the app themselves, although if they have one they may also want to download it.  plus another great feature is that the recipient of your videos doesn’t have to worry about having space to download or store the videos because Joya creates a URL for easy viewing. Another reason this app rocks is the fact that it’s so discrete, keeping your videos private.

Now for the kiddos:

If you are a regular appster you may have some of the Disney themed apps, but have you see Disney Junior Appisodes yet?? These cool apps allow your child to not only watch a Disney Junior show, but it allows them to become a part of the episode. Children interact with the app by saying key phrases and words, shaking the device, and clicking on the screen.

The directions given by Disney Junior characters are easy for little ones and exciting for the bigger ones. We love the fact that we can not only watch our favorite shows like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Jake and the Neverland Pirates, but that we can almost jump into their world through these apps.

Lil’ C especially likes to play these apps over and over again.

Alien Buddies is great app little ones preschool through Kindergarten age. This app created by ArtGig Apps allow children to play matching games, dot-to-dots, puzzles, and play with stickers they earn. Each game has different levels based on your child’s skills. The game is easy enough for Lil’ C {age 3} and still fun for our advanced Miss A {almost 6 years}. Lil’ C loves it and is progressing through the levels, definitely one of our favorites.
