Today there are tablet apps available to entertain every member of the family. For some good, old-fashioned family fun (on a not so old-fashioned device) here’s a look at what the market has to offer:
Family fun apps
There’s a great variety of skill testing apps that are great for getting every member of the family involved. Play games like Crazy Cow, Candy Crusher and Cat Dog Toe to see which family member can earn the highest score.
Fun family apps can also have a stronger educational focus, with brain training games like The Sink Words Puzzle Challenge or Hashi Puzzles. Many of these games can be played together at home using your tablet. You can also enjoy fun and interactive challenges whilst you’re on the move with games like Words With Friends.
Be sure to also keep an eye out for the super fun Draw Something which takes a modern spin on the classic game of Pictionary.
Sporting family apps
Technology doesn’t need to mean hours spent indoors. There are some excellent family apps for getting everyone outside and enjoying a range of sports and exercises. Why not test out the Pocket Yoga app or try out something new like self-defence or martial arts?
Planning a family day out
Apps can also go a long way towards creating a stress-free family day out together. The excellent Museums of London app can take children back in time with an interactive and fun inventory of the museums and their items.
Downloading a restaurant review app can also be worthwhile when you’re trying to locate a family-friendly place to eat.
Planning family holidays are also made easier with apps like the AA Days out Guide which features over 1800 attractions over the UK. The Heritage Trust and The National Trust also have informative features for planning your day ahead.
Meanwhile, weather apps like Accuweather give up to the minute weather updates for your chosen location while apps like Wikitude can help you discovering nearby restaurants, ATMs and attractions worth checking out.
