We at Fun Educational Apps had the chance to try Birthday Buzz story book app and I must say that it was a great success. It is the first book app we review that really made the kids take a pro active role in a book independently. It reminded them what they had learned at school and really enjoyed it. As a parent, I think that Birthday Buzz is a great educational and learning app. It is friendly, well designed and all the learning materials are supported by a great story and colourful illustrations. The navigation is easy to use and the user interface is very friendly. It is a great fun learning app. (Please note that it is read by Australian)
