DoodleCast for Kids ($2) captures your child’s doodles and voice at the same time, for instant playback. The process is automated and the products make wonderful digital snapshots of your child’s development. Keep the file for a dozen years and you’ll have an excellent mechanism for embarrassing your high school graduate. An active YouTube account is needed for the sharing. Ages 2-8.
Nighty Night! HD ($1, shown above). If there ever was such a thing as a nap app, this is it. Seven bucolic barnyard scenes have a hidden light switch. Once touched, the scene darkens and the animals settle into bed. The sheep snuggles into a bed of straw, the chicks huddle under their mother’s soft wing. Once in bed the animals stir when touched, but they stay in bed. Clearly this app was designed by an experienced parent. Ages 1-3.
