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

Kids love to pop bubbles. PopMath takes advantage of that natural interest by putting math equations and solutions on a bunch of floating, colorful bubbles of various sizes. The trick is that, of the several different equations and solutions floating around together, kids have to select the ones that match up. When they do those bubbles pop and disappear. When the level is cleared, kids can choose to move up a level in difficulty or continue at the same level. They can work on addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division, so this app should please kids throughout most of elementary school.
