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.

Whether you are stuck in the airport for what seems like days-on-end -- or just need a little break from the loved-ones, we've got you covered. We're going to look for some great apps to help you survive the trip home and back.

This isn't going to be a wrap-up of holiday titles. No, we're looking for those apps that can provide both hours and hours a entertainment while stuck in the airport -- and just a few minutes of fun while you avoid try to avoid the visiting uncle quacks when he walks.
