Who Comics iPad app is kid focused educational app. I don’t know about your kids, but my kids could play Angry Birds until the iPad battery dies. As much as I love Angry Birds, the last thing I want my kids to do is develop Angry finger and a brain obsessed with green evil pigs!
Thank you to who?Comics for sponsoring this post and encouraging my child to read biographies in comic book form! Please click here to learn more about the app. And follow who? Comics on Twitter for updates!
The Who Comics app works like a iBooks for comics for kids. The app is free with a few comics available for free, then there are several other comics for purchase (typically $4.99 but consider buying the bundle – see more below).
8 Year Old Reviews the App
My 8 year old, Z has a love for comics. She has read the Baby Mouse series and is mad at her grandpa for no longer owning a comic book store. I asked her to help me review this app and let me know what she thought. My daughter is one of those people who could vlog all day, so I set her up in iMovie and asked her to review – here is what Z has to say about the Who Comics iPad app:
We downloaded the Entrepreneur set which features the comic biographies of Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet, Walt Disney and Andrew Carnegie. The comics tell the life stories of these successful entrepreneurs – starting from their childhood telling their life story to date.
Z has so far read the Walt Disney, Bill Gates and Andrew Carnegie comic biographies, and I’m sure the other 2 will be read before week’s end.
Consider purchasing a bundle for a better value (you get 5 comics for the price of 2 comics).
Who Comics – App Details
Here are the full details on this app.
- Who Comics app is available on iPad only at this time
- The app is geared towards ages 8 years old and up
- The app is FREE, with 2 free comic biographies with additional options available for in-app purchase
The details from Apple app store:
Read about the lives and achievements of some of the greatest people in history, both past and present, in a 150 page long comic book form.
These comics are educational and fun to read. Instead of boring plain text, give your children a new, enjoyable reading experience that is light and easy to read in comic book form. But even before the children can start, parents won’t be able to stop turning the pages, too.
Who?Comics series contains the life stories of 10 of our greatest leaders of today and 19 historical figures of the past. Read and learn about the amazing lives of Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, Steven Spielberg, Joanne Rowling, Barack Obama, Warren Buffett, Stephen Hawking, Nelson Mandela, Jane Goodall, Bill Gates and much, much more.
You can even collect badges easily as you read the comic books and even try to find and collect hidden badges for each great figure.
Who?Comics provides a fun badge collecting experience that both children and parents will enjoy. Everyone can get caught up in the fun of badge collecting and eventually discover and develop their new found reading habit.
Digital Mom Says…
Digital mom says, the Who?Comic app is a great to get your kids reading and doing something on the iPad other than playing games or watching mindless YouTube videos. The price points are higher than I would typically like – but there are free comics to test your child’s level of interest (Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey biographies available for free).
While the comics on the Who app are currently geared towards biographies, I would love to see this expand and include maybe historical lessons about significant events. I watched my daughter digest all the information about these public figures and then talk about how Walt Disney got started and then how Bill Gates did certain things as a child – it’s really nice to hear. SOO much better than what happen on Phineas and Ferb (love you guys, and Candace too, but enough with the TV!).
As with anything you download, make sure the content is appropriate for your child. Each child’s maturity is different, so while an app may say a certain age – truth is each child is different.
