What’s better than a bunch of regular monsters? Cute mini ones, of course! Your child is presented with more than 30 beautifully illustrated pages, each featuring an interactive monster that will assist them with recognizing and learning a specific number.

Quick Drafts isn’t just fast, it’s also extremely useful. Every time you open it you’ll be presented with a blank page, allowing you to generate notes in an instant.

Trixibrix ($0.99 → Free, 3.6 MB): Trixibrix combines brick-breaking and side-scrolling gameplay into one fun package. It’s the perfect game to scratch that brick-breaking itch.
Trixibrix is about as straightforward of a brick-breaking game as you’ll find, which is why we love it. The entire bottom half of the screen is devoted to your finger. Slide back and forth across the region to control you paddle. The moment your finger touches the screen the ball will be launched, so be ready! All of the bricks you need to break scroll across the screen continuously, requiring you to break until you can’t break anymore. Power-ups will also randomly appear, giving you a chance to earn multiple balls and lives back.

Last City ($2.99 → Free, 329.4 MB): Protect the Dome’s power generators and all of those who reside within in Last City. It’s a visual treat.
The Earth’s atmosphere has become dangerous to humans, so a Dome was erected in order to protect those who decided to remain on the planet. Out of nowhere, creatures from deep space have descended upon the Dome, stealing the energy from the generators that power it. It’s up to you to fight them off and save those who are left. As an agent of the Dome Defense Force, you’re able to skate around the environments using swipe gestures. Simply tap on creatures to focus your attacks. You need to move quickly, as your oxygen levels are limited when outside of the Dome.
