This is not a complete list of apps that come from the public television universe – there are tons! The apps and bookmarks on these pages are those we have chosen, from PBS and elsewhere, because we think they’re high-quality resources for learners of all ages 2 and above, and because they connect to KLRU shows or community events. For iOS users, we recommend that you check out the free browser app Puffin so that you can play games from our website, klrukids.org.
Apps can be found in several ways: by visiting pbskids.org/mobile or the sites of specific shows. You can also go to the iTunes store, Android Market, or Amazon, and search using “pbs” or by the names of shows. Have a great app to recommend to us (especially free ones)? Send an email to email@example.com and we’ll check it out!
After the screen shots of our iPads, we have some links listed below to websites that we like a lot, too.

klrukids.org – You probably already know about this one! We have tried to bring a wide variety of safe, high-quality websites under one roof for safe browsing for learners of all ages
pbskids.org/read - Create a login for yourself, then register students or your own kids for sequenced early literacy games
pbskids.org/wordquest - HINT: Don’t create a login! Just play as a Guest! These games take up where PBS Kids Island left off in developing more sophisticated reading and vocabulary skills.
