Now I own an iPad Mini (yes, yes, I know… more details to come) I set about looking for some education software for my 6 year old daughter to use – one of the reasons that prompted me to buy the iPad in the first place.

There are some good lists online, such as one from PC Advisor, but the one that really is recommended is a site called Apps 4 Primary Schools, which lists educational apps for both Android and iOS platforms, but with reviews and recommendations from UK primary school teachers. Brilliant, and a must use resource.
