Best Android apps for kids in early 2013

By Posted 11 Mar 2013, 13:12

Having already looked at a few apps that Android users might enjoy this month, we thought it was an ideal time to look at some of the best Android apps for kids for the early part of 2013. With such a huge choice picking the finest ones is always going to be a difficulty task, but it’s clear to see that some are far more popular than others.

I’m sure that you would have heard from certain people that it is not a good idea to allow a child to have an Android tablet or smartphone, but if only they were able to see the benefits. The thing is these devices are far more important for a child’s education because having fun while learning will always have far greater results when it comes to their development. However, it does not stop them from enjoying themselves, and these apps certainly do that.

The first app that we feel is ideal to entertain kids is Subway Surfers, which sees you having to dodge the oncoming trains as fast as you can. This requires fast reaction speeds, which we know the younger generation has. It’s up to you to help Jake, Tricky & Fresh flee from the grouchy Inspector and his dog.

Second up we have the Anipang for Kakao Android app, which is described as an addictive, puzzle game. This must be a popular app because it is currently being played by more over 20 million players. Each game lasts for 1 minute because you have to match as many animals as you can in your allotted time.

Temple Run 2 has been available on the Google Play Store for almost a month now and has been downloaded more than 170 million times, so as you can see the franchise is still very popular. We’re pretty certain that we don’t have to explain the premise of the game, but thought we would supply a video for your viewing enjoyment below just in case.

Hill Climb Racing is also another popular Android app for the kids and was last updated just one ago. You have a choice of three cars, which you can use in six different challenges; you can also perform tricks through each round in order to earn extra coins.

Finally we have Cut the Rope Lantern Box, the latest from the franchise. As always you will need to keep the monster in his favorite food, which as you should already know is candy. There are 14 boxes with 350 levels in all, more details of which can be seen below.

We hope that you enjoy these Android games for kids, but if not then please share with our readers what your favorite children’s apps are.

    Thanks for sharing these apps Peter! I’ve been looking for some new apps to help keep the kids entertained on the road trip we’ll be taking later this month, so you’ve definitely helped! The kids will enjoy all of these apps I’m sure in addition to our favorite entertainment app DISH Anywhere. It’s an app I’ve had for a while now, since I work at DISH, that allows us to watch all of our shows form home, live or from off our DVR, everywhere we get an internet connection. My kids like to use it on long hauls to watch their favorite cartoons and movies, and I enjoy using it to catch up with all of my shows from when the kids are asleep and we are half way across the country!
