As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Follow my blog as I share my life and my experiences as a person who loves someone with autism.

Moms With Apps

As most of you know, we’re really into apps for our iTouch and iPhone, and if we could afford an iPad, we’d probably be on that bandwagon too. We absolutely love-love-love the Kindergarten.com app collection and told you about that and even gave you some suggestions for Apps for Autism. So by now, you should know that if we find a great app (or anything great for that matter), we’re definitely going to share it with you guys!

We recently discovered Moms With Apps, a group of family-friendly developers who share best practices on making and marketing mobile apps. They strive for their apps to be high-quality, educational, interactive and useful. They have apps for reading, apps for learning, apps for travel, apps for fun and creativity, apps for special needs, and even apps for parents like safe browsers and reward charts.

Moms With Apps

Moms With Apps purpose:

1. Collaborate, brainstorm and support developers who bring high quality kid and family apps out into the marketplace.

2. Illustrate the healthy intersections of kids and technology, where technology becomes an interactive tool for real life, and not a screen to hide behind.

3. Provide a resource for families who are curious about what’s available in the ever-growing market of mobile technologies.

If that hasn’t sold you yet, every Friday is App Friday, a weekly feature on a family-friendly developer from Moms With Apps and highlights one of the developer’s apps with a review and description, along with a FREE download or special promotion. But it doesn’t stop there, they are all about community building and have a section where you can share a link to an app you enjoy, so readers have a long list of recommendations to check out.

Mom With Apps... you had me at FREE.

You know the saying that if it sounds to good to be true, then it’s probably not? This isn’t the case here.

Take a look at Moms with Apps, see if you find anything that tickles your fancy, and let us know what your favourite apps are from them.

Thanks for reading,

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this great information, Tanaya!

    I recently purchased my husband an iPad for his birthday but we're finding that the kiddos (both on the spectrum) are getting so much benefit from all the super apps out there!

    I will definitely check out Moms with Apps and will be back to your lovely blog again soon! Love the title! Bubbles make us smile too! :)
