This app falls into the ‘Brain Training’ category that’s quickly emerging. It’s quite simple, yet surprisingly addictive. The only objective is to tap the numbers on the screen in ascending order as quickly as possible.
Blitz = Tap through numbers until the time runs out
Zen = Tap all of the numbers as fast as you can
The app keeps track of personal statistics. It also has the option to connect to Facebook and Twitter.
Catch this app if you can find it when it’s free.
Rather than being a kids version of the Holy Bible, this (free!) app presents stories from the bible in an engaging way. The app is quite simple to navigate through and includes vivid illustrations, animations, and simple comprehension exercises. The app comes with the option to have the text read aloud and even printed on the screen. Background music can also be turned on or off. The voice that presents each story is appropriately jovial.
