The iMums – Amanda, Alison, Mary and Grace – are four mothers from different parts of the world dedicated to educating parents about the best digital stories, educational apps, fun games and technology products available for their children. We also offer the latest news in apps for kids, interesting articles, developer interviews, free apps and regular giveaways!
Founded in August 2011, the four iMums have 11 kids among them ranging in age from 1 to 17 and bring a global perspective to their app reviews with the original iMum Amanda being from Australia, Alison is in America, Grace is from Singapore and Mary is from the UK but is currently living in America.
At less than a year old, the Australian-based blog already boasts hundreds of reviews on family friendly iOS and MacOS apps and products as well as a rapidly growing network of thousands following on Facebook and Twitter. To learn more, please watch the video below (and share it with your friends!).
Alison, her husband and their son live in the Midwestern part of the United States. They love playing outside, using the iPad (and all things electronic) as well as spending time together as a family.
I’m a busy mother of three young boys aged 5, 3 and 1 and have a background in I.T Support and Business Administration. I have a passion for reading, cooking and blogging; I love all things WordPress and have an obsession with anything Apple. Having been an Apple enthusiast since 2005, I was donned the nickname ‘The iMum’ due to my growing addiction to their products and my many, many apps. In August 2011, I decided to put my knowledge to good use and created a website of the same name to offer an avenue for parents to learn more about iOS and MacOS apps for their children so they can make an informed decision about which ones to purchase without having to trawl through thousands of apps themselves.
Grace is a mother of 4 children aged from 5 to 17 years old. The family of 6 loves to explore their neighborhood in Singapore and travel overseas during the school breaks. Her kids like to hang out together playing the iPad in their free time. At other times, the iPad is used mainly for educational purposes by her youngest son who has special needs.
I’m a busy mum of 3 – I have an 8 year-old son and boy / girl twins who are almost 5 years old. My background isn’t technical at all – I was a Veterinarian before becoming a stay-at-home mum! I am a long time Mac owner and I got my first iPad in April 2011. My daughter has Apraxia (a severe speech disorder) and I was totally amazed by how the iPad engaged her for doing her Speech Therapy practice. I started researching and learning about apps -both for fun and for education, and built up a sizeable app collection. I found some truly great apps and others that were not worth keeping. Soon I found I was spending a lot of time giving friends (and developers) advice on apps, so I decided to start reviewing apps to help other parents find the best apps available.
