Best apps...For kids who play with iPhones

ProCamera; Bloom; Gravilux; FaceTime

ProCamera turns an iPhone into “one of the easiest cameras for a child to handle.” Kids can tap the screen anywhere to snap a picture, and every photo they take contributes to a “visual diary of sorts.”

Bloom is Brian Eno’s “generative” music app for the iPhone. Tapping the screen produces a “bell-like tone accompanied by an expanding colorful circle,” similar to “dropping pebbles into a still lake.” The tones loop, allowing toddlers to create the same “dreamy soundscapes” that Eno is famous for.

Gravilux, an interactive art app, makes kids feel there’s “magic” in their fingertips.

FaceTime lets you make video calls by iPhone, which produces conversations that are “less stilted” than on a computer screen. It’s an app that “brings joy to grandchildren and their grandparents alike.”
