Wheels on the Bus is an $0.99 application for the iphone and ipod touch. This app in available in five languages and is based on the nursery rhyme. It has instruments and recording support, turning it into a great educational tool for young children.The app was created by, with the aim of providing a great experience to children.

Resembling an interactive storybook the colors are bright and clean, and the illustrations are well thought out. Different sounds have been given to every animation giving life to it. The best thing about the app is the ability to change the music with all the extras offered. You can select different languages(English, French, Spanish, Italian, and German), and so sing along in any of the language you like. Also you are given an option to select just certain types of instruments (Violin, Cello, Piano Trio, Duet, Kazoo and Gibberish) so your child can learn about the sound it creates. You can touch, explore, and discover fun surprises in the captivating, interactive illustrations. The last feature about this app is the the ability to record your own voice.

The only reservation about the app is its music which can be a little annoying for the parents but can be switched off. Also while the music is turned off the sound effects can’t be turned on. Overall the application is a complete source of entertainment for the kids.
