Made by parents, for parents. App Friday is a tool for parents and educators to watch video previews of apps that focus on childhood development. Parents and educators are able to go through the videos and watch them before downloading to ensure the apps are suited for their children.

Our App Video previews are viewable according to their learning objective: Early Learning, Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Skills, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Books, Parents, Puzzles, Creative Play, Special Needs and Seasonal, and are easily accessible through our tab bar.

For each app a small information panel is elegantly overlaid on the top of the video preview screen. To further assist parents and educators in evaluating apps before downloading, up to three links to reviews of each app are also available. Each Friday we highlight app video previews.

App Friday was created by family-friendly mobile app developers who want to raise visibility of kids' educational apps. The team is led by George Karavias of Anlock Apps, Marcel Widarto of Sogabee Apps and Lorraine Akemann of MOMs With Apps. They are supported by app makers and enthusiasts from around the globe who join in the cross-promotional effort.

The App Friday team takes your privacy seriously. We do not collect personal information from app users. We do track anonymous app usage patterns using Flurry Analytics so we can understand our product's performance and improve it over time. The app includes the ability to share content via email, and also the ability to connect to the app store to download featured apps. This app is intended for app consumers, and not for children under 13. The intention of this app is for consumers to discover apps for their kids, and not for kids to use the app itself.
