Does your child play on your smartphone?

I got sick of my kids playig zombie farm, catapulting cows and torturing cats on my smartphone. I deleted the offensive apps (although my husband has kept the 'bird' one) and started downloaded ebooks instead. Now when we're out and abou,t my six year old can learn to count in Chinese or French with colourful flashcards and my ten year old can read a book from her school reading list or her favourite author.
Amazon offer their reading app for free and educational books start from as little as 75p - really no excuse as your phone is always with you

I have a word search on my phone, bowling and Blast Monkeys, some driving race car game the kids just love. so yes i do let them play as long as they share and good behaviour throughout the day.

My son who is 5 plays on my iPhone, most of the apps we have are puzzles that he has to figure out or games. We also usually play YouTube videos of kids songs for entertainment. If the app costs money we don't get it, his latest thing he likes to do is follow where we're going on the map and tell me how to get there.
