The Lazy List

Screen shot

Taking pictures & screen shots as well writing things out with great detail what that we want to share about apps takes a LOT of time.  Often people say to us “Just give me a list of your favorites”.  So, I’m dubbing this the “Lazy List”.  It’s just a list with links of our “most played” apps that we haven’t reviewed up to this point.  😉

In no particular order or coherent train of thought…

(I love this for searching for a particular verse, having a handy concordance/interlinear, I can bookmark & take notes, switch between translations or have translations side-by-side)
 Apologia ~ This is really just like quizzes.  A little to “schooly” for our taste.  😀
(these take up a MASSIVE amount of space ~ so I’d keep them in your cloud & only download the one you need when you need it)
(If you’ve never heard of it, here’s some cool info on why Minecraft is educational  )
(we find them to be a little too “schooly” for our taste, but if you like fun ways to “skill drill” they’re good)
(Boy said “cannon” one was good, he really didn’t care for the “sodabomb” one)
(There are “lite” versions for both of these that are free.  The full version for 99cents is well worth it.)
NASA
 Also, consider “word games”.  We really enjoy:
 (the “with friends” games have free & paid versions.  At one point, “Hanging” was running condom advertisements.  So, we paid the 99 cents)
This is just fun to goof off with.  And yes, we can see Grandma’s car parked in the driveway!  😉
 Lego has numerous apps in a variety of age & interest levels.  If you just search Lego in the app store ~ you’ll find tons of options.
This only works well if the kids playing are basically at the same level.  It is designed for “classroom” use and is not intuitive to give players specialized levels of difficulty.
(younger kids PreK-early elem)
 TED
(really more for adults or upper teens)
 If you have Netflixthey have an app.  We watch a lot of documentaries, PBS-ish shows, etc.  You need to be paying for the monthly service though.
