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

Celeste SE’s Rankings
- #3 Educational
For kids with an interest in the moon and solar system, Celeste is a must-download app. Like the popular Google Sky Map, Celeste uses your phone’s camera and GPS system to give you an augmented reality of the sky. While Sky Map labels all the stars and constellations, Celeste focuses exclusively on celestial bodies closer to home – the sun, the moon, and the planets – but it then gives you extra information, including the object’s path through the sky today, phases of the moon, and a variety of facts about it. The detailed graphics add an extra layer of educational fun.
