Middle School Confidential 2 Real Friends vs The Other Kind | Book Apps


Real Friends is a fantastic book app for our middle school kids or those preparing to enter middle school.  This can be a time that is filled with social pressures and the need to fit in.  This app demonstrates very clearly the hurdles that kids encounter and suggests great steps that kids can take to overcome them.

I wish these were available when my kids were in school (they are now grown).  I was a PTA president and felt strong about the need to help our 5th graders prepare.  The most I had was to put together a series of self-esteem sessions for them.  Now we have these wonderful gifts so easily shared with our kids, parents, caretakers, and teachers!  I am so grateful!

You will meet Mateo, Michelle, Jack, Jen, Chris, and Abby—six friends trying to figure out what middle school’s all about. Kid’s teaching kids.  It’s a beautiful thing! Adventures include boyfriend-girlfriend issues, communication, self-esteem, cyber-bulling, and more!

Real Friends is written by teen expert Annie Fox, illustrated by Matt Kindt, and published by Free Spirit Publishing.

TEACHERS: We highly recommend that you check out all of Electric Eggplant’s apps!

What was the initial inspiration for Middle School Confidential 2?

Wicked the Musical, and all the friendship issues my tween/teen email brings me each day from kids around the world!

What is your favorite aspect of your app?

I love the quizzes. As a teen reading teen mags, the best part were the quizzes to help you learn about yourself. So we put in 3 quizzes in the Real Friends app. They’re designed to help readers stop and think about what a ‘real’ friend would do in a certain situation. Not always an easy call! I think the quizzes add a whole other level of social intelligence skill-building to the apps. We’re going back to the Be Confident app and adding quizzes there as well.

Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Your support of the kid’s apps you and your children love is important to developers like us. When you buy an app that you think is particularly well done, rate it on iTunes. Tweet about it. Tell your friends. Help get the word out. That’s how we raise the bar on the quality we expect from apps for kids.

Special Note!

Annie is offering free video Skype classroom visits through February for schools that purchase (or have purchased) our apps! She did her first last week and it was a lot of fun. ~ David Fox
