Baby Name Playroom – iPhone App

Did you know that the Social Security Administration released a free iPhone app called Baby Name Playroom about a month ago?

It offers all of the data available at the SSA’s baby name website, plus a few extra features such as:

  • The ability to create and save a list of favorite names, and then “share them on Facebook, Twitter, or via an email”
  • A baby name trivia game, “to test your baby name knowledge”
  • A “Surprise Me” button for viewing random names
  • Links to “baby and family related services and information” on topics like infant care, health insurance and toy recalls.

Consumer Reports called the trivia game “kind of fun,” and TIME called the “Surprise Me” button “our favorite feature.”

I haven’t downloaded it yet, but others seem to like it. Baby Name Playroom currently has a 4.5-star rating (based on 41 reviews) at the iTunes App Store.

Have you tried it out? If so, how do you like it?
