Lightomania App Review (Sponsored)

A first look at WhatsApp’s new iOS 7 redesign [VID]

I don’t often get asked to review apps for kids, but, seeing as I have a couple of my own I’m always on the lookout for entertaining and educational programs. Both my son and daughter are under five, and fit in perfectly to the target audience of Zorbit’s Math Adventure. So I gave it a spin – or rather – handed it to my kids to see what they thought of…
