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

A simulation of the classic wooden puzzle game, this app depicts a steel ball rolling through a wooden maze toward a goal. The maze is laced with holes as obstacles. You tilt your phone to tilt the maze, thus controlling where the ball rolls. There are several levels of progressive difficulty, plus hundreds more variations that have been added by users. The look and feel of the game are quite realistic.
