Home Team, by Panasonic
Welcome to your next “must have” app. Testers described Home Team as the next wave of Facetime technology. It doesnt just allow for the face-to-face video calls we have come to know with Facetime, Hangouts, Skype and the like. Instead, Home Team gives you a fully interactive experience by adding the ability to read stories and play games together, all while looking at each other and chatting. The app comes loaded with activities for every age group – from basic memory matching games to chess. For traveling parents or grandparents, this provides a level of connection that we have never seen before. The library of books available is quite extensive and includes some favorites like Curious George. As for games, younger children loved matching and hidden objects. Testers told us that Home Team quickly became a favorite, with kids looking forward to “playing” with Dad on a business trip or grandma who is in Florida. The setup and connection are very straightforward so you will be up and playing in short order.
