Starfall is a very diverse app providing children and their parents with many learning activities covering reading, writing and arithmetic.
I personally know three families whose children have had massive success in learning to read and beginning to learn arithmetic using Starfall. My own three year old daughter is also currently using Starfall (hey, it's the only way I can get her to eat breakfast!). She is not only having a great time, but is learning swiftly.
This Starfall app is a mobile version of a website offering a full preschool education. Beyond the basics of “the three R's”, this app also delves into shapes, geometry, counting money and telling time. It's a veritable gold mine of educational activities that is sure to keep kids interested and learning in many different subjects.
Starfall FREE offers a few activities in each category to give parents and children a taste of Starfall's range. The website and full app are available with a subscription fee which I believe most families will find more than worth it.
There's really a lot that Starfall offers. Download the app and see what they have to offer, and if you love it (like I do), do the subscription. You won't be sorry.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. In-app purchasing for full version.
