About apps: These Are the Things That I Want You to Know

Posted by Amy Solomon on March 23rd, 2015

I would like to announce that, due to the recent changes that were mentioned last week, as of April 1 I will no longer be the editor and writer for the parents' and children's section of 148Apps. Being a mother of a seven year old boy who is interested in building and S.T.E.M. related apps, I will still be purchasing applications for our personal use. Having reviewed children’s educational apps for the last four and a half years has given me some experience in gauging whether an app will be a hit with my family, so please allow me to share these insights.
