25 Interactive Apps for Kids

From Charming Storytelling Apps to Music Making Kid Platforms

— July 1, 2015 — Tech
These interactive apps for kids encourage learning and help children to develop communication skills while enhancing their memory, speech patterns and even their ability to read and write. Designed with an educational component in mind, these mobile platforms connect kids to beneficial content that aids in their personal growth and development.

As children grow more exposed to technology from a young age, their natural intuition for mobile devices and interactive apps for kids illustrates just how far our society has come. While some may argue that kids shouldn't be exposed to technology at a young age, the proven benefits of educational games and apps cannot be denied and are more useful for young minds than platforms that are purely designed for entertainment.

In addition to math and language platforms, this list also includes creativity-encouraging platforms and video apps that merge animation with educational content.
