A Trip In The USA is a great app to kick of the Summer holidays and inspire the traveler in kids while giving an overview of US geography.
Using rhymes, this app tells the story of a trip to several US cities where you learn about the geography and history. Cities include: New York,Â San Francisco, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Orlando, Seattle and Houston.
One of the nicest things about this app is that you can personalize it with your child’s face – and gender – so the story becomes about them. I was surprised at how nicely the personalized photo was integrated into the app, giving the photo an illustrated look that worked with the style of the app.
Other features include:
- Interactive elements on each page
- Universal app works great on iPad, iPhone and iPod
- Fully Narrated
There are many children eBooks for the iPad, but only one series starring your child. Mom, It’s Me!â„¢
