iPad Only App - Designed for iPad
Child-friendly apps are always of a premium, and games that help shape admirable behavior are even more desireable. Development house If You Can is introducing a new app called IF …, which looks to help kids get a hold of that which is sometimes hard to control: their emotions.
The process is framed as a role-playing adventure. Through various interactions in different social situations, the player gets to explore responses to said situations. The first chapter is free, and the developer promises more levels are on the way. IF … promises nice graphics, surprises, and simple sequences.
IF … is currently available for free in the App Store.
If watching the Olympics with young children and all their questions has been driving you a little crazy there’s an app featuring Channel 5/Nickelodeon’s British small screen and small people mega-star Peppa Pig available in most Commonwealth App Stores to the rescue. Peppa Pig’s Sports Day should distract budding fans, but keep them on topic. Regrettably it’s not currently available in North America
The universal app is more like Peppa’s color war than Peppa’s Olympics with its blend of sporting, crafting and even cooking mini games, but the six diversions along with bonus sports-themed digital sticker book pack in a lot of play time.
The activities include Olympic favorites cycling, and long jump along with an obstacle course, tug of war challenge, ice cream shop and Rosetta design shop giving little fingers lots to explore. The app is presently only in the UK New Zealand and Australian App Stores, and we hope to see it on this side of The Pond soon too.
