Apps for Kids -- Mobile MUM App for the iPad, iPhone, Android and Online (Review)

The Mobile MUM App is available on iPad, iPhone, Android and online.  

Mobile MUM has a wide selection of fun preschool TV shows and games in a friendly entertainment environment appropriate for your kids on iPad and iPhone. Parents and kids can choose from hundreds of episodes from programs like The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, Pocoyo, Sid the Science Kid, Animal Atlas, Busytown Mysteries, Pajanimals, Chloe’s Closet, and many many more. Watch anywhere you have an internet connection.

Mobile MUM is available with a free STARTER account with nonstop access to a limited selection of our content, or upgrade to the FULL account with access to all our educational shows and hundreds more episodes for $4.99 a month, or just $34.99 a year, charged to you iTunes account at confirmation of purchase

My Thoughts: 

One of Savannah's first words after Momma, Dadda, Papa and Nana, was iPad.  Even though I bought the original iPad for my husband last year, it has quickly become one of Savannah's favorite toys.  Not only can she watch her favorite cartoons and films through Netflix and the PBS app, she can now watch the Wiggles (which premiered on Mobile MUM on 2/7), Dino Dan, Pocoyo, Mighty Machines, Chloe's Closet, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That and Sid the Science Kid, just to name a few. If you are familar with the PBS app, which shows clips of their popular children's programming, Mobile MUM is similar in nature, as it offers a selection of popular children's shows.  One major difference between the Mobile MUM app and the PBS app is that the Mobile MUM app plays the cartoons in their entirety.  I love this, as Savannah always gets disappointed when she is watching the snippets, instead of the full show.  And, once she is done watching an episode, she can choose to watch another, with a simple tap of a button.

This app is easy to use and navigate around, for both parents and children.  And, with over a 1000 episodes to choose from, children will have hours of entertainment right at their fingertips.  How great is that moms?  I have been using this app for over a month now with Savannah, and am so glad I stumbled upon it.  I am amazed at how smart Savannah is and how she can easily browse through the shows available, and then knows which buttons to push for more.

As a mom, I am always cautious of what apps my daughter uses, but when it comes to Mobile MUM, I don't have to worry, as I know that the preschool schools available for viewing are age and content appropriate.  Just recently, Mobile MUM saved the day at the pediatrician's office.  We ended up waiting close to an hour to see the doctor, and not having had her nap, Savannah started becoming restless and fussy.  I quickly pulled the iPad out of my diaper bag and put the Mobile MUM app on.  She tapped on The Cat and the Hat Knows A Lot About That, and instantly, she started to calm down, and was able to entertain herself while we waited in the patient room for the doctor.  And, when it came time for her vaccines, I distracted her with this app, and she was able to handle them without a problem.  

So, if you love downloading and sharing fun apps with your children, you definitely need to check out Mobile Mum.  You will be glad that you did!  And, your children will thank you for it!!!

---BUY NOW---

Click here to visit the iTunes store to download and purchase this educational and entertaining app.  You can also try out this app before signing up for a monthly or annual membership, which is great, if you are on the fence and want to see how your child reacts to the programming available.  But, I bet after the first day, you will be signing up for the monthly or annual plan.  At only $34.99, why not buy the full year's membership and not have to worry about monthly renewals.  And, in the long run, you will be saving over $20 just by choosing this option, as the monthly fee is $4.99.
