Bottom Line: A geography app jam-packed with information and pictures. Easy navigation and colorful layout will catch a user's eye, but the app will appeal only to a small audience of young geography lovers with good reading skills. Seven different maps to explore with five activities in each allows for a lot of content, but staying engaged could prove difficult for many.
Bottom Line: Blue Planet Tales is a good option for an app taking on informational text. Davy Crockett is historically sound, not sugar-coating the actual events, both with Native Americans and the Mexican-American war. There are comprehension questions integrated into the app, too, making this e-book a rare combination of informational text with a comprehension focus, all with a nicely-designed app. **Get this story for FREE today and tomorrow!

Bottom Line: Easy Song Studio — Holiday Edition is a delightful way to getting kids in the holiday spirit and get their creative juices going. Kids can quickly build a unique song and tweak it to make it their own. From changing the sound of the background music to modifying the speed or adding effects to the singing, children will have fun exploring and creating music. Though an entertaining app, the app’s claim to help kids learn English effortlessly may be a little bit of a stretch.
