Ways to make your smartphone (and kids) smarter

DoReMi 1-2-3

The classic exercise goes digital with an app that teaches kids ages 3 to 6 actual scales and pitch recognition; they’ll be one step ahead of the sound game when piano and violin lessons start. Cute graphics, animals, and familiar children’s melodies make learning all the more fun.

Lite version available free at itunes.com; full version at itunes.com, $3. Also available at amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com, $1.
