Android App Suggestions PLEASE


Recommended Posts

ETA: sorry, I missed the pre-k part


The specialized apps we use most are:


Countries of the World by Socratica

RealCalc (we use plus)

Math Workout (we use pro)

Wikidroid for Wikipedia, though Wikipedia *finally* has a workable app out for Android

the Oxford Dictionary of English (though I got it for next to nothing way back when... it is *not* worth $30), though the Dictionary.com is fine (we have ad-free)


The rest of our school use is the general "must-have" apps: browser (I use Dolphin HD); Google Maps, Earth, and Sky Map; YouTube. I'm still playing around with PDF markup programs, and haven't settled on one yet.

These were all free. There are lots of reading apps too. Check for pbs and bob books. I hope this helps

I found a space app called Solar Explorer Lite (you can upgrade but I don't know how much it costs).


If you want phonics, number, reading etc games I found the ones by Intellijoy to be rather good. We have Kids ABC Phonics, Kids Learn To Read and Kids Numbers and Math. I paid about $5 to upgrade them from lite versions.


There is an app called 123s ABCs handwriting fun which uses the Zaner-Bloser print style. It is by teachersparadise.com.


Oh and be careful that you don't use the Samsung Apps to get the apps, I tried some from there and they were all buggy and messed up my phone. Better off with the android market. :)

Might be a bit old for pre-k, but we love AnkiDroid, which is a flashcard app. Free, there's lots of free decks you can download, and it is easy to make your own.


And you must get the free Google Sky. Again, maybe a bit old for pre-kers, but it is magic.

I bought an Acer Iconia to review more Android apps - well, I own an app review website, so it's justified :). I have some reviews here:




BUT you'll want to get Famigo Sandbox for child-proofing your device, Intellijoy has awesome apps, Oceanhouse Media has the best storybook apps, and some really great iOS developers are working on porting to Android too - so watch for good apps coming soon!
