Why I pay for Apps?

One of the biggest reasons I tend to pay for Apps is to avoid the advertising.  Plus, I’ve heard of children managing to download full versions at great expense to their parents.  This happened to one of my neighbors  but he did manage to get a £70 credit from Apple and he has now changed the settings so it doesn’t happen again. 

I was trolling the net today looking for more Maths apps for my 5 year old.   I often rely on the reviews when deciding whether to purchase or not.

I know I shouldn’t find this funny, but I did!

Free Ipad Apps for Kids


You may want to bear this in mind when downloading those FREE apps and don’t forget to turn off the ability for ‘in app purchases’ on your devices to avoid any nasty surprises!




My Journey from WordPress.com to WordPress.org

I’m still not 100% sure why I’ve moved my blog from WordPress.com to WordPress.org but apparently I’ll have more control, flexibility and if I decide to go down the route of monetising it it’s better to self host as WordPress.com doesn’t allow advertising.  Do bear in mind that I’m not a techie geek so if you are, look away now!

It’s been quite the learning curve so I thought I would write a few posts to summarise my experience, hoping it helps you in some way.
