Download this app quickly! It's terrific and regularly $3.99 but the developer has made it FREE for one day only to celebrate his son's second birthday!
Today's Free App of the Day is Gube, which provides a child-safe interface for You Tube. Over 3,000 videos (with more added all the time) have been watched and OK'd by parents for inclusion. It's one of our Top Picks.
Gube does all that work, and far more, for parents. It pre-screens videos to determine which ones are appropriate for kids and creates an interface where nearly 3,000 can be reached. So, as a parent, you can let them play the app without having to worry about your kids being as haunted in their dreams as I am by the memory of gangster Elmo.
Gube presents all the videos that have been incorporated into their database on one screen, so to speak, that can be scrolled through up and down. It saves favorites and recents, has a search page and excellent settings functions that allow the parent/teacher to set appropriate age filters (infant, toddler, preschool, grade school.)
The favorites page also has a continuous play option similar to that in the iPod when listening to music. Videos that have been favorited can then be played in order or in a random loop...

* Rather than just post a list with links we're going to find one free app each day, make sure it's worth downloading, and post the info.
Here are the rules:
1) The app has to have some substance as free. In other words, it can't be a few seconds of play and then require an in-app purchase.
2) My kids or I have to like it.
3) It can't have ads all over it.
