After purchasing a used iPad on Craigslist before vacation almost three years ago, we love finding new apps that the boys will love when they get the opportunity to use computer time. You can check out our previous iLove Apps list here. When I heard about the Pandora app from hullabalu, I knew it would be something my boys would love!
Inspired by timeless classics and a love for fantastical storytelling, Pan tells the story of Pandora “Pan” Beribolt, a young purple panda in the clouds, and her merry band of friends as they go on a quest to find her family. Bring the magical world of Hullabalu with you anytime, anywhere.

This storybook app is perfect for beginning readers and Charlie loves to follow along. The interaction and the requests for him to do something with the screen helps with his comprehension and understanding. The bright colors and vibrant animation keep their attention while also learning. When receiving his weekly computer time, this is one of the first apps Charlie wants to pull up. At just $3.99 in the App Store, we can hardly wait for more stories in the series to come out!
