Top 10 Apps for Nurturing the Creativity in Kids

Below, expert David Andrews has listed a selection of his top 10 apps for creativity:

iMovie: add video, photos, music and sound effects and trim the length of any clip. You can create trailers with immersive graphics and original scores, build polished projects with themes, record and edit soundtracks.

Creative Book Builder: add paragraphs, images, videos, audio recording and links. You can also add page breaks with chapters, change font and preview in iBooks.

GarageBand: turns your iPad into a collection of touch instruments and a full-featured recording studio. Play pianos, organs, guitars, drums and basses, which sound and play like their counterparts, but let you do things you could never do on a real instrument.

Strip Designer: create comic strips using photos from your photo album. Select one of many page templates and insert photos, add balloons with words and add additional symbols to spice up a story.

Explain Everything: easy-to-use design tool that lets you annotate, animate and narrate explanations and presentations. Create interactive lessons, activities, assessments and tutorials.

Skitch: use shapes, arrows, sketches and text annotation on photos, screenshots, maps and web
pages then share them.

Videoscribe: create animated videos that replicate the stop-motion capture style of drawings that’s so popular on commercials.

SonicPics: turns your images into a custom slideshow movie. Add voiceover narrating your image as you swipe through them.

Brushes: features advanced colour pickets, several realistic brushes, multiple layers, extreme zooming and a simple interface. Records all your actions when painting.

I Can Animate: capture frames using the in build camera, displays onion skinning, undo support, preview whole projects and then add to an iMovie project for a really polished movie.
