Our favorite iPad Apps

We use my iPad quite frequently, for school and myself.
Here is our list of our favorite iPad Apps (till now) (and most of them are free, at least when we got them)

Mickey Mouse Road Rally (free. The kids REALLY love this and me too, quite fun, interactive and educational)

Puzzingo (free. like a wooden puzzle game and the younger ones LOVE this)

Toca Doctor (we got it free, now $1.99, but it's quite fun for the younger ones, to "heal all the ailments" of the body, by putting up band-aid, or pulling out spikes, taking away germs etc)

Teach Me ($1.99. we got them for a review, there's a toddler, K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade versions. Read our review here)
Avatar Books App (free. I found this app VERY amusing because we get to put our kids' photos up at the avatar and the kids love it but as a book it's ok..)

How to Draw (we got it free, now $1.99, I didn't like it THAT much, but funny thing was Colleen REALLY REALLY likes it)

Stella and Sam (We got the Into the Snow and Rainy Days for free, now $2.99. The kids love it and I LOVE IT!!! the stories are WONDERFUL, Stella and Sam are SOOO adorable and the games are fun)

Math Express (free. The kids and I love it. More for K to 1st grade level)

Doodle Dots (free. Quite fun. Like a dot-to-dot, but using numbers, colors, shapes, fruits)

Puzzle Farm (free. One of the puzzle apps we like. Clean and easy to use)

Letter Land (we got it free. Now $0.99. I was ok with the app, but Colleen REALLY likes it...took a while to learn it)

Letter of the Day by Lakeshore (we got it free. Now $1.99. I like it. Very educational. Clean graphics. Good learning, with tracing)

Adding Apples (We got it free. Now $0.99. Fun easy addition concepts for the young ones)

Subtracting Sardines (same as Adding Apples)

Nighty Night (We got it free. Now $2.99. Very good graphics, fun interactive. But not much educational sense...just switching off the lights for the animals to sleep, but the kids like it)

Stack the States (One of the RARE ones we paid. $0.99. I thought it's VERY educational. The kids haven't gotten to play it yet, cos it's not at their level)

Word Tracer (we got it as a review. now $2.99. My fav app for learning Chinese. But it's only Simplified. Our review here)

For me
These are what I use the most and like
Facebook (not the best, but better), Kindle, Dropbox, YouVersion Bible, Cozi (for grocery lists), Simple Note (for ALL note taking)
I also use Pepperplate to put in my recipes and my menu planning
And I use Prayers Notes for noting down prayer request (I like it)

All are free.

Also, I follow Apps for Homeschooling on FB to find free apps all the time. I don't like free "lite" apps, I go for the free for a period ones.
