    Today I received an email from a fellow educator of young children about apps that were available on Amazon for Android, I didn't look closely enough yet to see if they were actually optimized for phones, yet. There is almost nothing in the Android Apps store that seems appropriate. But...being new at this and a little afraid to order out of the market...does anyone have experience with apps on Amazon?
    Thanks

    What types of apps are point for? There are many, such as word skills, math skills, puzzles. Even games help hand eye coordination.

    I have a Super Why app my toddler likes. He also has various puzzle apps that help with memory and patterns. Both kids love Blast Monkey which helps with geometry and angles.

    Sent from someplace, and with something that you need not worry about.

    Apps

    I haven't seen those in the Android market place but I will look them up. Toddler and preK apps would be what we are looking for.

    This is what my 3yo is into.
    Angry birds
    Where's my water
    Can knockdown
    Flick golf
    My first puzzles
    Gravilux
    Doodlejump
    Superwhy
    Color & draw (by tipitap I think)
    Zebra paint

    I had a few more such as a math one and another word comprehension among others, but their popularity has waned. I had more puzzles. I'm sure I have some others on the ipod but never bought them on Android.

    someone reminded me of another app, Ant Smasher. Sound effects are eww or funny, depending on your point of view, but all of these help with fine motor skills, which at this age, is more important. We homeschool so we are bigger on anything that are manipulatives and reading.

    If you have an iPod, get TocaDoctor. even my 7yo loves it but there is no Android app for it.

    Haven’t tried to get any apps from Amazon coz I’m just a newbie with these gadgets. I bought it for my 4-yr old daughter and I installed Astroloquiz in my iPad. She loves it and learning new word that I haven’t heard before from her. She really is smart and will become smarter if she’ll continue using this educational app.:icon_ banana:

    Get yours here https://itunes.apple.com/app/astroloquiz/id577708973?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo=2
