The iMum has come a long way since its inception in August 2011 and with that growth came more responsibility so I decided to take on some guest reviewers to help with the workload. I put the word out and pretty soon I was swamped with requests from mums wanting to write for TheiMum.com. Three people in particular really went above and beyond with their reviews and recently I asked them if they would like to become a permanent part of the team and fortunately for me, they said yes!
Between the four of us, we have eleven children ranging in age from one to 17 and we now bring a global perspective to our app reviews with me being from Australia, Alison is American, Grace is from Singapore and Mary is from the UK but is currently living in the USA. The iMums goal is to educate parents about the variety of iOS and Mac apps available for children of all abilities. We review all types of apps including: dramatic play, art, education, digital stories and games and we also try to highlight apps that may suit children with Special Needs.
As self-confessed app addicts with literally thousands of apps between us, we try out these apps with our iKids to find the best ones for you and your kids. There are hundreds of thousands of apps in the app store and our mission is to find the best of the best and let you know about them. As well as reviewing apps we also work with developers Beta testing new apps and giving them feedback and suggestions on how to improve their apps. You can read more about The iMums on our About page.
The introduction of the new team is just the beginning of the many new exciting things we have in store for TheiMum.com. If you’re a long-time supporter or you have only just discovered us today, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date news and special giveaways and also vote for us in the Circle of Moms Top 25 Tech Moms competition!
