Free App Friday – Free iOS and Android Apps!

Here are some apps gone free (typically only for today, June 22) for Free App Friday. Some apps were previously reviewed but have come around free for the downloading. The iOS apps are appropriate for visual perceptual , visual motor and visual memory skill development depending on the app. Check out the Android device management tool as the Android free (always) app!

iOS Apps Gone Free

How to Draw – Full Versions – Another Step by Step Drawing app reportedly free this weekend only.  For kids ages 4-7 years.

iLuv Drawing Monsters  HD –  Step by step drawing app by the developer of the series of iLuv Drawing People, Animals and Dinosaurs. iPad version.

Puzzle Family Plus – This app features 8 different puzzle games for iPhone and iPad. Currently free, visual memory, visual sequential and visual memory games are offered in this app. Looks interested are suggested as an app for the whole family.

Free Android App

Here is an Android app rated well and available always for free that looks worth checking out. I would love this app on the iOS system.

Zoodles Kid Mode – Always free, this Android app provides a games and a safe mode for kids to play the included app games, drawing, videos, educational app as well as apps you choose for your child. The activities provided within the app are suited to age 1 through age 8.   Information indicates you can set up profiles for different children.  Here is a video of the app:

I have not used this Zoodles Kid Mode app but it sounds great for keeping children or students in a safe mode or controlling what they spend time on when using a mobile device. There also reportedly is a timer that can set limits to how long kids can engage in the device. Comparably on the iOS iDevices there are apps for limiting what YouTube videos you want your child to watch, but I am not familiar with an iOS app that you can set a profile of videos, activities and apps as Zoodles Kid Mode. What a valuable management tools for parents!

Do you know of an iOS app comparable to Zoodles Kid Mode? Please share if you do!

Happy Free App Friday!
