With the Australian Bureau of Statistics reporting more than 10 million Australians aged 16 and over now spend an average of $500 a year on games, entertainment and social media, the question of what is the most popular app to help them meet their social needs has arisen.
News.ca.au spoke to more than 40 parents, grandparents and gaming experts to find out which apps are the most loved and which are the least popular.
Here are some of their recommendations: “Playful” game: “My children and I play this game for all of our friends.
It’s one of the most effective ways to keep our kids and family engaged and entertained.
They can go online and find out about all the different activities and events they can play together, all from their own room.”
“Social” app: “There are some very interesting social games available that let you interact with your kids and families, with each other, and with other family members.”
“Theatre” game, social: “It’s great to see them having fun and making the world a better place.
There are some great shows out there.
It makes for great entertainment.”
“Games” app, entertainment: “If you’ve got kids that like games, you’ll probably want to play some games.
Games like Super Mario Bros. and FIFA are great, but you can also play a bit of Minecraft.
There’s also some fantastic games for younger children.”
“Teacher” game and social: For teachers and their students, “Teachers” is a great way to keep students engaged.
They also have an app for teachers, called “Teach My Kids”.
“If you have a small family, you may find it helpful to introduce them to some games and other activities,” Ms Smith said.
“They’re fun and they can be a great time together.”
“What is the best app for your family to use for social media?,” a parent asked.
