Welcome to the Dad of Apps

If you are like me, you have a child or two or three+ (I have 2), have a phone or tablet that accepts apps, but don’t know which apps to download for your children.  That’s precisely why I started this website.

My son just turned two and he was given an Apple iPad.  I logged into the App Store but was clueless as to which apps I should download for him.  After going thru the first 10 apps, I settled on three.  But I wasted lots of time doing so and with two children at home and a busy job, time is extremely valuable to me.

The goal of this site is to vet apps, with the Dad of Apps seal of approval.  Dad of Apps stands for trust, authority, and fun.  The review guidelines are public and we expect to have over 50 full reviews online by end of 2010.  Over time, we expect to cover Apple Apps, Blackberry Apps, Android Apps, and Windows Apps.

If you want to contribute or help out in anyway, please feel free to get in contact.  Thanks for stopping bye.
