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

Math Attack’s Rankings
- #4 Educational
For older kids who are ready to move on to tougher math equations, Math Attack offers a chance to practice tough problems while racing against the clock – adding a game-like challenge. Players can select their difficulty level; Easy starts with equations like 36/4 and 7×2, while an example of a Hard equation would be (12×2) – 7. In the Practice setting, kids can elect to work on addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, powers, multipart equations, or any combination of these. Upgrading to the Pro version gets you the Survival mode, in which correct answers buy you extra time, and the Rounds mode, in which you get 10 questions per round and you’re allowed only one wrong answer per round.
