My 8-year-old son and I are about to go on a trip which will require two 6-hour plane trips. A friend is going to lend me an iPad to take on the trip. So what can I load on it to amuse my kid?
So what games or aps can I buy for my kid to amuse himself on those long plane rides? He loves gaming on our Wii: Super Mario, Lego Star Wars, etc. So, adventure-type games that are without violence are good. He also loves reading, nature, science, super heroes, and anything to do with Harry Potter.
I'm only going to have the iPad temporarily so I don't want to spend too much, but if I could get away with amusing him for $20 or $30 that would be great.
And what's the battery life like? Any tips on extending battery life?
I've never used an iPad before, but I'm going to assume that the operation is pretty much self-explanatory. But do you have any tips for me?
I did see this
and will check out the suggestions, but that post is a year old.
