Today's Good Free App of the Day is Bluster!, an app where children (from about 7-10) match rhyming words, prefixes, suffixes, synonyms, homophones, adjectives, and more in a cool weather-based game where they have to "battle the elements."
Kids can even play with friends in team mode or against each other head-to-head, which includes sometimes sending a tornado a friend's way!
Nothing says friendship like a tornado.
** Please note ** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. **
