Kids’ Music Player – Kids’ Music Player is a music player for preschool children. Of course your kids already know how to use your iPhone or iPad, but when they’re small, they cannot read CD covers or titles yet. That’s where Kids’ Music Player comes into play. To get started, choose the appropriate genres from your music library (e.g. “Children’s music”), and you’re ready to go. Your child chooses an album by tapping it. Cute pet icons then represent each of the tracks on the album. Tapping an icon plays the song. You’ll be amazed seeing how fast your kids learn which pet stands for which song. For older kids, you can additionally display track numbers and your kids will start to learn the numbers along the way. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.
