iTunes App Review: LeapFrog Learning Path

Leapfrog_logo

As a busy mom of three I am often looking for answers, for help and suggestions from others.  Whether it be for a question I had about one of my kids, a product or app suggestion, a worksheet printable or goals that I should check out for my kids that are age appropriate.  There are just so many websites out there that it can be totally overwhelming to even know where to start and who to trust.  One brand that I already trust as a parent is LeapFrog and they have come out with a free app for Apple devices that has pretty much everything a mom (and dad) could want.

LeapFrog Learning Path

Updated: November 4, 2013

Learning Path by LeapFrog is designed specifically for parents and helps you support your child’s learning with personalized ideas, fun activities and expert advice.

You’ll get new ideas each week tailored to your child’s learning stage, from infancy through 3rd grade. Hundreds of activities, printables, articles, videos, tips and discussions will keep your child progressing and having fun.

The Learning Path:
– Provides personalized learning ideas, updated each week to help children reach their learning goals
– Outlines step-by-step solutions to prepare children for key milestones, from saying their first words to getting ready for kindergarten
– Connects parents who care about learning with other parents, teachers and our own team of experts
– Delivers progress updates via email when children play with their LeapFrog-connected devices (optional)

So like I said the app is free and once you download you are ready to go.  You can either create an account for LeapFrog from there or if you already have one you can login.  Once I was logged in, both of my boys profiles immediately popped up and recommendations, goals, and activities were shown.

Here are some of the screenshots from the app under with my actual profile:

First here is my profile screen that shows 2 children, you can see my picture on the bottom left:

leapfrog learning path 10

More discussions, good to know I am not alone with some of these questions!

leapfrog learning path 11

Overall, I love the LeapFrog Learning Path.  Yes it has app/product suggestions in it but that is a small part and not the main focus.  The interface is easy to navigate and not overwhelmed with ads, like many other free apps.  Other brand apps I feel just push their products and don’t really benefit the child or parent, but this app does it all.  I honestly can’t even think of anything I would add right now.  From the discussions from other moms and the free printables, those are my two favorites.  LeapFrog has definitely done it again with a great product, even better that this one is free!
