Are you a developer?
sticker App Report 123

App Friday: January 30, 2015

I've had several requests this week from developers wanting to do free promotions, so here we go. Sales may only be valid on Friday unless extended by the developer.

First up is Newton Multiplication by Redu.us.  It received 4.5 out of 5 on AppyMall (see the review). Formerly Broccol-e-games, they also make the popular Maths with Springbird

Monkimun is offering another free app this week.  Kids can create imaginary animals with Monki Animal Builder. 

Yellephant has set Coosi Box free, an app to create and share pictures.

Artgig Apps is back already with a new math app named Door 24 Plus developed in conjunction with Curriculum Associates, and yes it too is free.  

If that wasn't enough, explore the skies with Star Walk Kids, visit Tommy's Farm or look through the list of newsworthy links.

See you next week.
