Jack and The Beanstalk - a comparison of apps (best Android apps for kids)


This is a classic fairytale that has been retold and reworked by many authors, editors and now app developers. With so many versions in the app store, how are you to know what is the best one for your child? There are loads of free versions, so why would anyone pay for a Jack and The Beanstalk app? Below is a comparison chart of five Jack and The Beanstalk Android apps. I have chosen these five because they do not contain ads (with the exception of the lite version of StoryChimes), and are the best Android apps I can find of this fabulous fairytale. If you look at what is included, you will agree that you get what you pay for. Take your pick or download them all. Enjoy!
