Some of you may be familiar with App Friday at momswithapps.com, a group of family-friendly developers who offer a group of apps for either free or a reduced price every Friday.
We've taken a look at the free apps available this week and have listed our general impressions and download links. This week is a cracker, with over $20 worth of apps for free.
Some of these apps are free ONLY UNTIL 8PM Pacific Time (U.S.) so don't delay!
Nearly There: iPad only. Original price: $4.99. Free all weekend. Story about Budley and Bishop, two horses on an adventure in Ireland. With watercolour illustrations and Irish music it's a sweet story with a unique look and feel.
Elfishki Game Collection: iPad only. Original price: $1.99. Free all weekend. Three games from the Elfishki storybooks in one app - Help Jeanso pack his backpack, Sea I Spy and my favourite, the Decorate the Cake game. Here you can see a delicious cake that I lovingly decorated with a seastar, octopi, snails and bats. Enjoy!
Talk About It: Objects Home HD: iPad only. Original Price: $5.99. If you've got a child in the age 6-12 range that needs practice talking about objects, this is a must-download.
