The question for today; Do you download apps to your iPad or your iPhone or both? Mr Tiny Shiny Apps (dev guy) raised a very interesting point. Do people download apps on their iPad for their kids to use at home or on their phone as a distraction tool in a crisis?
I only download apps on to my phone. Mainly because that iTunes account is linked to Mr M’s bank card…. oooops, cover blown now! But I have to say I definitely use them to distract the kids when I need them to be moderately still! Example being; talking to the mechanic about my MOT fails…. grrrr! Or when I’m taking my Mum for lunch so she has the (false) impression my children will sit for a civilised meal.
But I guess I should download them on to my iPad instead, and then they can actually see all the graphics and functionality. This is particularly true for the Phonics apps where Daisy really struggles to make her letter writing fit the tiny screen on my phone.
So what stops me?
I don’t think about getting apps when I’m at home. Its when I’m out and its more of an impulsive purchase based on where we are or who we are with. I don’t think I have ever bought an app based on a top ten listing I’ve read….. or is that just me?
Really interested to hear your thoughts?
