Top 25 Android Apps for Kids
You may view your Android phone as a communications device, but your kids know that it's actually an awesome mobile gaming center. When you're caught in traffic or facing an unexpectedly long wait at the pediatrician's office, you are going to hand over that phone. The kids will be happy, you'll be relieved, and, if you choose your apps carefully, they might even learn something while they play. On a safety note, while some of these games have the option to network with other players, I don't recommend that for kids. Let them know they shouldn't select anything that says "Share" or "Sign into a network." Did I leave out your favorite? - Sonya Mukherjee

50 States’ Rankings
Learning about the 50 states is a great introduction to geography and to learning about the United States as a whole. This app gives kids facts about each state and offers a variety of quizzes, like state capitals, nicknames, state flowers, and more, as well as a quiz that lets them identify each state when given its shape, nickname, and flag.
