Who Wants FREE Apps?

Do you want FREE apps for your iPhone or iPad?  I will admit it, we are a bit of a Mac junkie here at The Moffatt Girls house!  I keep telling the girls, "You need to share....that IS Mommy's iPhone!  My turn, please."

Needless to say, we also love our apps!  No, I don't let the girls spend hours on our iPads or iPhones, but an educational app is ALWAYS a FUN way to reinforce or teach specific skills.

On to the FREE app.... It was one of those days....I REALLY needed a caffeine fix, so I headed to Starbucks.  I rarely go there, so it is always a special treat:)  The girls get an apple juice and I get my Carmel Frappuccino..mmm!!  So I am waiting for my Carmel Frappuccino at the counter where you pick up your drink.  I look down at a stack of business cards that say, "Pick of the Week."

Well, upon further investigation and a little inquiry from the kind lady making my drink, I learn that Starbucks gives away paid apps for FREE every Tuesday!  WOW!  Sometimes they are music, books, KIDS APPS!!   I totally scored this week with our NEW Dora's Skywriting ABC's!!

We downloaded this one on our iPad...

Sophia L*O*V*E*S her new app!!  She is learning how to trace her letters in such a FUN way and I have a good reason to go to Starbucks every week;)  


This app is $3.99 in the App Store and completely worth the money!!  

Needless to say, I think I will be visiting Starbucks every weeks...but only once a week, of course:)  I think I just bought into the whole Starbucks + FREE app marketing ploy:)

Are the apps only iOS or do you get a choice of Android??
