Book Description


”I have gone through a number of books like this one, and most of them are pretty much the same. This is the one you want… Personally, I will check out any book this author writes about apps because, for some reason, maybe a bad case of OCD, he is obviously compelled to do the most thorough investigation into each and every aspect, good and bad of apps in a particular genre. My hat's off to him, and he has my thanks for saving me a ton of time and grief.” - Linda Abbott (Reviewer)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Selection That Takes Away the Guesswork! January 12, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I am so happy that I took the time to look through this. It is packed full of great reviews and details on a ton of educational Kindle apps for children. It takes a long time to download and try out apps, especially if you plan on having your kids play with them. Mr. Middleton had done a wonderful job of trying out a bunch of apps, only including the ones that he thinks are worthwhile, and giving us quick and easy to get through details about each app. I know what my pet peeves are with apps so it's easy enough when he lists the pros and cons for each one to see if there is a con I just won't tolerate. These are broken down by category with age ranges and a grade based on a variety of criteria. Mr. Middleton has only included those apps which get a certain grade. I read through what was pertinent to me in a matter of half an hour and since I was reading on my Kindle, I was able to download apps as I read about them.

    Worth every penny.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a time-saver and well thought out December 27, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I have a couple of Kindle Fire 7's that were recently added to my household: they go with kids age 7 and 11, and I hadn't really had the time to determine what apps I should load on them besides browsing the "most popular free" section. I haven't really found what I've looked for there, as what is most popular is not what is educational. That's why I picked up this book: it promised to save me a few hours of experimentation.

    I just sat down and went through every page of the book, alongside one of my KF's, looking specifically at the app descriptions that addressed educational areas that I wanted my kids to focus on. The book was divided nicely into sections cover art, math, reading, music and a couple of others. Each app was described well, including basic functionality, additional features, pros and cons, and if there were any notable problem with the Kindle interface. Sometimes the writer would actually detail how to accomplish something in the app (like saving a sound file) if the app was a good one with a particularly vexing gotcha. That was particularly winning for me, since it was obvious that the book was being created with care to add value to the apps that are out there.

    When I was done with the book, I had come up with a list of 11 apps I wanted to install for my 7-year-old and 12 apps for my 11-year-old. Now I can install those apps and lock down the Kindle Store permissions again, fairly confident that I've given them the best of what's out there on the educational level. I'm grateful to AppBible to putting together this concise guide. I can just imagine someone trying to publish a non-electronic equivalent of this book and having to fill it with fluff just to fill the page count, and this is a very welcome alternative!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Fair and comprehensive app reviews January 7, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The App Bible series of guides is a helpful series for anyone who owns a Kindle Fire. The author knows the platform, and has personally tested each app he has reviewed. This provides a great balance to the often skewed reviews found on the app store.

    The apps are divided by type so that you can go more quickly to the type of apps you are most interested in. You can go directly to the app from the provided link if you decide the review indicates that the app is for you. Also provided are links to the developer and the developer's email.

    There are notes about the app from the author, giving a basic description, along with what he found good and bad about the app. He provides a subjective score, which, by the description in the introduction, should be fairly accurate. Also provided are a rationale for downloading the app, tips for using the app, and a summary of the app store reviews.

    If you want a way to get accurate info about actually useful apps, without having to weed through the worthless filler on the app store, this series needs to be in your library

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good recommendations August 21, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    My little girl is getting a Kindle Fire for her 5th birthday. I was looking for apps to load ahead of time but there are so many I didn't know where to start. This book points out some good apps. It gives the good and the bad and has direct links to them. I'm sure not all of them are winners, (I haven't been able to spend a lot of time with each one), but there have already been some good finds that I hadn't even seen during my searches. The way I look at it, for $.99 it's a good starter guide. I've blown $1 on bad apps before, but this was money well spent, IMO.

    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I found this book to contain more app info for children's free apps than for those I was looking for, such as news, socializing, weather, movie/tv apps, etcetera. But I can tell a lot of work went into this book, so thank you.

    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    As a mom and a educator I spend endless hours online trying to find apps that will encourage the growth of young minds. It really helps when I stumble upon something like this that lays it out in front of you. Which apps may have inappropriate ads, which are not more suited for a particular age group, etc... I have tried a few of these and will try several more. Keep up the great work.
