It’s Our Birthday!

One year ago today, I launched the CAppTivated Kids blog. I’ve had a great year and want to say a big thank you to everyone who has subscribed, read, shared and commented on my posts. Thank you also to all the app developers, interviewees and guest reviewers who have contributed to the blog.

As a special thank you for your support, I’m excited to launch a huge app giveaway today including over 50 apps and two now three very special prizes! All of the developers and most of the apps have featured on the blog this year, and you’ll find some amazing apps on the list.

The deadline is Friday 31 May 2013 at 18:00 UK time, and all you need to do is leave a comment below this post (one per person). As some of the apps are iPad or iPhone only, and one is UK only, please mention which device you have and whether you are outside the UK. If you have any of the apps in the list already, please email me at and I’ll try to make sure all the apps are new to you if you are successful.
