DiaryZapp has made the finals of the 2018 UK App Awards in two categories, Best Children’s App and Best Education App
DiaryZapp is aimed at primary school children and older, DiaryZapp is an opportunity to create with young children records of their everyday life and promote early writing skills.
DiaryZapp is the perfect app for young children because not only is this app fun, but this app offers several features that help children in improving their creative skills and their vocabulary. With this app, your child will learn something new every day and would utilize his/her time in doing something productive. Your child can also share their work with friends and family and get appreciation from them. This fun-to-use app is also completely safe to use as you will have complete control on what your child is sharing with others.
Encouraging kids to write daily can be challenging, but this app makes journaling fun, creative, and easy. What sets Diary Zapp apart from other journaling apps are the added benefits of the vocabulary boosts and parent oversight, and the optional ability to share journal pages with others. The Zappicon character is a fun little hook.
This is an interactive diary app that encourages young people to document their adventures and their lives in an interactive way whilst improving their communication and literacy skills in the process. It is an excellent app to use during the holiday periods when learning can ‘drop-off’ as it encourages young people to keep a visual and written documentation of their holiday time whilst secretly improving their writing skills. However, this app does not just have to be used in the holiday period as it would work really well as a toy and interactive diary throughout the year. There are also many different features within the app including a sense of challenge where new things become unlocked the more the user plays and uses the app.
Beth a Year 2 primary school teacher used DiaryZapp on a school trip and said: –
‘The children in Year 2 really loved using Diaryzapp on a recent school trip. It was a fun and interactive way for them to record and report on the day’s events. It engaged even the most reluctant of writers and parents commented on how impressed they were with both the app and their children’s work. I look forward to using Diaryzapp in the year ahead and urge other primary school teachers to do the same as it is such an invaluable resource which helps motivate and enthuse children to excel in literacy. The fact it is a secure platform and add-free ensures ease of mind for all its users.’ – August 2018
DiaryZapp is a children’s app originally designed by the Dance family to help their children who were given the task of writing a daily Summer holiday diary for school. Shortly after starting they realised their daughter, Ella, was struggling with her literacy and Noah their eldest just wasn’t that into it meaning what was supposed to be a fun task turned into a chore. They also found that the children were keen to share what they had been getting up to with friends and family which was an extremely difficult task when using good old fashioned pen and paper.
After a discussion about possible resolutions, Noah who is 9, suggested that an app would be a great idea and would allow sharing of not only diary entries but also photos and would be a great way of keeping in touch with friends and family over the holidays. DiaryZapp was born!
‘[As a primary school teacher, Diaryzapp is leading the way in terms of an interactive and fun app that encourages children to practice and develop their literacy skills. I have witnessed reluctant writers excelling with their work due to its easy to use and rewarding nature. Diaryzapp is a great tool for helping with home learning, documenting school trips and maintaining skills over holiday periods. I would recommend to all primary school teachers!’
Duncan Primary School Teacher
DiaryZapp is a fantastic new app that allows students to record their daily actions in a creative and safe digital environment. The app allows your students to share their work with allocated email addresses. A fantastic safety feature that allows you to control where your students work is going. This also enables you to share your students work in real time with their parents so they can feel apart of their child’s learning process.
DiaryZapp is a fantastic app to help kids record their day-to-day adventure. With the holidays coming up soon, it would also be a great way for kids to maintain learning while also having fun and staying in touch with their family members and friends. Highly recommended for ages 6 and up.
‘We absolutely love this app, in my opinion it has brought the dying art of keeping a diary bang up to date in a fun and engaging way for children (and adults!). It also allows them to keep in touch and share their adventures with those they may not see often and for me continuing communication is always a good thing, especially when it’s encouraging and enhancing literacy skills along the way. It is also a fantastic ‘modern’ way for children to store their memories safely to look back on in the future.”
DiaryZapp is aimed at little ones and their families, meaning it’s very colourful and easy to use. The app was designed by a family for other family’s , largely thanks to an idea their son Noah came up with. We have been using the app for nearly two weeks now and I am delighted with it. It’s so easy to use and brightly coloured. My only complaint is that I wish I had had it sooner!
DiaryZapp is an app designed to help your child get creative and record their activities. Whether it be adventures outdoors, literacy homework or the latest arts and craft project, it can be recorded and shared with grown-ups. Created by the Dance family, the app is ideal for those with school age children.
I often get asked to try apps and they either don’t spike my interest or turnout to be hard to use and of low standard but this certainly isn’t the case with Diary Zapp! It will be definitely be staying on my phone ready for school in September!
