Today's Free App of the Day* is Toontastic, an app we rated five stars when it wasn't free! This app does contain in-app purchases but it does not hard-sell them and can be definitely enjoyed as is, although the app is so good I recommend buying the ones you think your child or student would enjoy.
Also, I've looked all over for info on how long Toontastic is free and I can't find anything so it may be not-free very soon!
Fantastic. E quickly grabbed a paper and pencil to start on a script and was yelling "action!" just a few moments later. In about 30 minutes, using it for the first time, his first cartoon was finished.
The app takes children step-by-step through the process of creating their own, simple animated cartoon. The interface is very sharp and easy to learn, guiding the child through each step. They pick a scene, add characters, dialogue, movement and music. They can even design their own scenes and characters within the app. There's really nothing like it that I have tried in the app store.

* 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.
