Bottom Line: Angus the Irritable Bull isn't trying to break over the fence with a new take on the book app medium, but it has certainly done a blue-ribbon job of presenting this cute story by Dean Proudfoot and Daron Parton to young readers. The app is beautifully illustrated, professionally narrated and offers a humorous story with a teachable lesson: sometimes grumpy people don't know why they're grumpy and a good friend can help.
We first reviewed Abilipad in February 2013, when Deanne made it a Top Pick app. Its 4½ star rating was well-earned. This great app was just recently updated, so we're taking a fresh look at it! I've made a few additions to the review to include these new updates. Be sure to take a look at it — it's a fabulous app for students with special needs. Abilipad is incredibly customizable to help with adaptive reading and writing. If you're looking for a great text-to-speech app that also inlcludes word prediciton and the amazing ability to make quick and easy keyboard layouts, check out Abilipad!

Bottom Line: A child’s imagination can be boundless. In 1000 Adventures by Dada Company, kids get to explore the depths of one little boy’s imagination while he goes on various adventures. Not only do children get to follow along with the story, they also get to help transform the scene into a fun and imaginative adventure. With lots of creative interactions, sound effects and an upbeat story, children will not want to miss out on any of the adventures in this app.
Bottom Line: Vincent is a thoughtful, problem-solving, space-exploring anteater and everything about this app is a bit quirky in the most lovable way. Although navigation can be clunky at times, it's a fun ride. Follow Vincent's quest to find the missing green hairy ants and learn about biodiversity and ecological responsibility in this stop-motion animated story.
Bottom Line: A unique simulation app that allows the user to travel through the digestive system, using trial and error, in an educational, yet fun way. The simulation is thorough, but the app only has one to proceed through. The Amazing Digestive Journey will teach healthy tips and science in an engaging way.
