[prMac.com] Timisoara, Romania - Publisher Laura Volintir today reports a rapid increase in the number of visitors to her relatively new review site, Top Kids Apps, which offers well-written, professional, independent ratings and reviews of iOS and Android apps for kids. Each weekday one app is chosen Best Free App of the Day and is added to the nominees for 5 Best Free Apps of the Month. Users can find apps categorized by Age Group, Free Apps, and Educational Apps. Developers of high quality apps for kids are encouraged to apply to have their app reviewed.
With hundreds of new apps for kids released weekly, Top Kids Apps helps parents, educators, and kids separate the good apps from the great ones. The site's colorful homepage features an animated display of the three most recent apps chosen as Best Free App of the Day. Across the tab bar are links that take readers to any particular section of the site, including: Android, iPad, iPhone/iPod touch, Reviews, Best Free App of the Day, Giveaways, and Developers.
Especially helpful are the drop-down menus for the first three sections, which categorize apps according to device. Here, readers can select Top 5 Apps for Kids, Educational Apps, Free Apps, and Apps by Age (1-3, 4-5, 6-8, 9-11, or 12 and up). This makes finding a recommended iPad app that is appropriate for a 3-year-old easy and quick. Each full-page review features a brief description of the app, an expert opinion on the quality of the app, several screen shots, and thumbnails of similar reviewed apps that may be of interest to the reader.

Some reviews are followed by a Rafflecopter giveaway, where readers can register to win a Promo Code to download the paid app free. The Giveaways link on the homepage contains listings of all current Rafflecopter giveaways on the site, plus listings of paid apps that may be downloaded free for a limited period.
The final section of the website, Developers, contains a Request a Review form to fill out. An extremely valuable opportunity to generate publicity for their kid's app, developers are encouraged to apply for a review from this independent site. According to Laura Volintir, "We review educational apps for kids aged 1-12 years. We also have a special category for kids aged 12+ and parents alike, who are looking to have some fun. All our reviews are free! However, in order for us to review your app, it should get at least a 2 out of 5 stars rating. Visuals, gameplay, audio, educational value - all are important when it comes to rating your app. If we are interested in reviewing your app, we'll contact you for a promo code to download a free version of your app. Our reviews will be real and honest, so parents can rely on them before they download an app for their kids. Don't expect us to promote your app, unless it is really valuable. We only review the best kids apps out there."
