I've noticed that a lot of people, like me, have gotten their Nexus 7 in part for their children. With the option for multiple user profiles, it works great for that. I was curious what apps you guys found that your kids liked best. Please note the age of your kid(s). Mine are 8 (boy) & 10 (girl) and their favorites are:

Air Penguin - by FAR their favorite!
Temple Run
Fish Live
Pet Shop
Tap Zoo

My son, in particular, likes
Hangman Free (they both play this together)
and he loves the Ironman Mk VII interactive graphic novel. Very cool.

And Angry Birds Star Wars is always a favorite

I'd love to find them some others that are fun and, preferably free. Also looking for those that aren't too heavy on ads and push notifications. Hopefully this thread will help some others with the same, too!

Got 2 nexus 7 for my 5 and 9 yr old.

They like all the ones previously listed. One I didn't see that they love is "kids mode"

Hi,

I just published a children's book/app on Google Play that is beautifully illustrated. It's a self-reading book; that is, a child can tap a button, and it reads the text to them. The book is a collection of short stories about a little blind dachshund that will give children valuable information (in an entertaining way) about living with the challenges of life.

It's called "Rufus, The Blind Dachshund".

Here's a link to my website: Rufus, The Blind Dachshund

The page has a link to the book/app on the Google Play Store, or you can search for it under "Apps" (at Google Play).

Please check it out! Thanks, Mark

My friend told me about this great app which helps children to learn simple multiplication sums. The child can take a quest, which is made up of twelve parts and usually lasts around twenty minutes. The child will get a score and a grade for each part and then an overall grade and score and then a final certificate which my child loved.

Here is the link to the app here: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e...imestables.testquest.nickbroom&token=WmQ6BdqL
