Bottom Line: This is the first chore app that is actually fun for kids to play and parents to organize. Centered around a fantasy story and game, children advance through levels by completing chores given by parents. The intermingling of an in-game quest with real-world activities while collecting player cards and playing games makes this app a welcome addition to a parent's toolbox.
Bottom Line: We're taught from an early age never to judge a book by its cover and this ageless wisdom holds true for this fun and highly interactive story about two friends who adventure through space to find each other. Snot & Fluff is jam-packed with little hiding places for a star hunt that works seamlessly with the story and parents will love the reasonable price tag.
Bottom Line: I had a big, fat helping of nostalgia reviewing this app, not just because of my own childhood, but that of my own kids when they first discovered the joys of reading and puzzles for themselves in the Highlights magazines. Highlights has brought all of the fun of the treasured paper publication that connoisseurs have come to expect and this time, instead of stickers, kids get some great videos to go along with hidden objects and fun nuggets of information heaped out in kid-sized lovable morsels of goodness.
The price will be cut from $2.99 to $1.99 for 7 days

This is a powerful and easy-to-use tool to help parents control device usage.
