iPad App of the Week: Little Builders

Little Builders icon

iPad apps are, and have always been, a big part of what makes the iPad such a powerful device. Great apps, and unique apps that you just don’t find anywhere else, are one of the hallmark features of the iPad. They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Little Builders – Trucks, Cranes & Diggers for Kids – which promises (and delivers) construction fun for kids. It is made by Fox & Sheep, the same developers who created the wonderful Petting Zoo iPad app.

This app is aimed at children aged 8 and under, a demographic that I don’t quite match (on most days I keep my mental age a tad above that). But the app’s icon and intro page drew my attention and I decided to give it a whirl last night – and I’m very glad I did. That was even before I realized it was made by Fox & Sheep too.

This week’s pick is Animoto Video Maker, a great little app for turning your iPad and iOS photos into polished and pro looking videos in just a few minutes.

Animoto is easy to use so you can produce a short video to share with family and friends very quickly. I’ve used it often to send a video link to family members who couldn’t make it to an event within minutes of the event ending.

This week’s pick is SpeakaZoo, which offers up a unique and fun zoo full of animals that will have conversations with you and your kids.

When I first saw a promo for the app, I thought it looked like it would only have appeal for very young children, but something about it struck me so I installed it, spent some time with it, and also had my 11 year old daughter give it a try.

Red Herring iPad game

This week’s pick is Red Herring, an incredibly fun and challenging word game / logic puzzle game that throws in some trivia elements too. If you’ve been following this site recently you won’t find this to be a shocking pick – as I’ve already mentioned Red Herring a couple of times here, and noted that it’s made by the developers of the superb 7 Little Words game.

I was fortunate enough to have a pre-release version of the game for about 10 days before it hit the App Store, and I can tell you this is every bit as great a game as 7 Little Words.

This week’s pick is Find the City. It’s touted as a ‘fun and educational geography game, for kids of all ages’ and it does a great job living up that.

The game’s title lets you know what it’s all about – find a specific city, which can be anywhere in the world, as quickly as you can. You scroll around and pinch and zoom as needed until you have the target city in your crosshairs – then tap on a big button to indicate you’ve found it. The closer in you get to the city and the faster you find it, the more points you get.
