Touchable Earth – iPad App Review

Remember those extra classes in school where teachers used to take everyone to the AV room and show videos? Sometimes they would be interesting videos but most often they were boring, filled with dull narration and substandard images. Compare those with what we have in Touchable Earth and you will see why we call it one of the most important kids’ apps on the Apple Store.

Touchable Earth was created as a social studies encyclopedia without the boredom part where text after text gives you information that is hard to digest and retain. Instead, it gives you a platform to learn through informative, fun videos that depict history through the lens of the current times.

It is basically an app where you can get a peek into the lives of other children around the globe. Although still sounding boring, it is much better than opening a history book and reading. What Touchable Earth does – as an app, and not a game – allow you to learn more about different cultures. Which is why it is more target…
