Remember the old days? Kids and stuff crammed in the car and on the plane. “Are we there yet?” Road trip and holiday essentials. Games, books, movies, music, colouring-in and quiz books. Anything and everything to keep the kids happy, entertained and quiet.

All this and more is accessed by one of three amazing Apple products.The IPod Touch, IPod and IPhone can carry almost more entertainment than a month-long holiday can cope with. Get one or all 3.

The question isn’t whether to invest in any of these incredible essentials, but how do I keep up to date with the huge range of apps available and growing by the second?

Apple took Out & About with Kids along on a half-day road trip to showcase the latest and hottest kid-happy holiday apps. Here are a few of our favourites.
