iPhone apps for toddlers
I’ve spent the past few weeks on paternity leave. Since my time out of the office coincided with the launch of the App Store, I’ve had the chance to try out a bunch of new iPhone programs. I’ve learned that those apps can sometimes come in handy at keeping our two-year-old occupied for a few minutes while mom and dad tag-teamed the newborn.
In this week’s video, I look at some of the inexpensive—and age-appropriate—apps that our toddler found interesting… for a few minutes, at least.
