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

Space Physics’ Rankings
- #5 Puzzles
This game gets high marks for creativity. Use your finger to draw circles and lines in designated places, and they transform into wheels, gears, and structures, which you then use to guide a marble to its destination. The objects follow real-world physics in their movements. The game is clever, visually appealing, and quite pleasing when the puzzles are solved. The one caveat is that drawing shapes precisely on the touch screen can be a challenge. To get all the levels, you need to download the add-on “Pack for Space Physics,” which is free.
