– Most expensive browser, but no extra steps required.   Can be used by students of all ages.
– To Click ‘n Drag, you have two options:
1. Tap ‘n Tap
2. Tap – Drag – Tap
– It’s nice to have two options so the students can use their preference.

$4.99

– Less Expensive, but requires extra step.  Photon requires users to click on an “enable Flash” button every time you want to use SmartTutor.  This is okay with older kids, but not good for 4-7 year olds.
– To Click ‘n Drag, you have to Tap ‘n Tap instead.  Easy to do and understand for almost all students of all ages.

$2.99

– Least Expensive
– Contains ads, which can interfere with the sound (delays it) and ads may be inappropriate for younger children.
– Instructions on how to use the flash are given during the first use,  but could be hard to follow for younger children.
– To Click ‘n Drag, tap the Trackpad and use two fingers to drag.  Trackpad may be preferred by older children but potentially difficult to use by younger children.
– Not as user-friendly for first time users
– Recommended for older children (10+) only
