Moms With Apps Creates a Mobile App Store for Kids and Families

Moms with Apps icon
Redwood City, California – Moms With Apps, a collective of parents who
make apps for the iPhone and iPad, launched a mobile app catalog of
family-friendly apps on the iTunes App Store. The "Moms With Apps"
mobile app simplifies the app discovery process by enabling parents
and educators to search for apps by specific educational categories.

Developed in collaboration with the Moms With Apps iOS development
group, over 200 participants have carefully categorized their apps by
educational value and age group. The result is a comprehensive index
of over 600 family-friendly apps.

"It's the first tool of its kind to give an organized voice for
family-friendly apps, and we intend to be the best and most committed
resource to help make the iDevice an educational tool for families."
Lorraine Akemann, Editor and Co-founder, Moms With Apps

Categories cover topics such as early learning, math, science,
reading, creative play, and special needs. Each app contains
recommended ages to enable multiple types of searches. Browsing for
apps is facilitated by a "wishlist" option, so users can go back and
revisit apps of interest. Then, newly discovered apps can be shared
with friends and family through social networks.

"The (Moms With Apps) app catalog is fabulous. As an educator, I've
been feeling overwhelmed with requests for 'the best apps to help with
______'. It takes so much time to search the overwhelming abundance of
apps available. You have just made our jobs so much easier!!" Denise
