QUALITY
 

Where is the little hand? What's the big hand on? Learning how to tell time can frustrate both kids and parents. Of the several iPhone apps that teach the skill, this one's best because it speaks the time aloud. Three clock face styles are shown and the time is spoken in a child's voice. When the correct clock face is tapped, it gets a big check mark and a new screen displays both the clock face and the digital time. At any time kids can tap an audio button to hear the time spoken.
