Education Apps for iPod or iPad

Edited 6/2/2012

We got *both* boys an iPod touch shortly after this originally posted because they learned so much from these apps.  This year we will get the larger iPad.  The educational apps really work for right brained learners.  There is a NOOK for iPad app so the boys can get their “I Can Read!” books and have a library to go.  Many free books too!

We got OtterBox to protect their iPods.  They work well!

* indicates the apps we downloaded.  Our favorites are in purple.

    This is an awesome post. Thanks for sharing these as it makes my life so much easier now. I recently bought a touch and the only time I have to browse around shopping for things like this is pretty nil. I did get to spend an hour checking things out while waiting for daughter to get an eye exam but haven’t had a single minute since. I was impressed with what I did see during that time and really want to look into a few of these. And they are cheap.

    My daughter just started Kindergarten, so I wanted to get her some educational yet fun games. Thanks for the post! My top 3 from the list:

    Spelling: Licking Letters (arcade style spelling game)
    Math: Rocket Math (all different types of # games)
    Books: Bob Books (based off of the real Bob Books!)
