Whether you want to help your kid learn fractions, geography or just goof off (and, umm, film a movie), you'll love these amazing apps for school-age kids -- just try not to get hooked yourself! (21 Photos)
Available on: iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
Best app for: Using your imagination
Want your kids to use their imagination more? Check out Scribblenauts Remix, which contains forty of the most popular levels from the Scribblenauts and Super Scribblenauts video games, with ten new, original levels created exclusively for the app. Scribblenauts
contains a series of puzzles that players need to solve by figuring out what's missing or what's needed: For example, in an empty classroom, kids need to think of objects that are missing (such as desk, chairs, pencils) and type the word in. The object then appears on the screen, and players advance to the next level by naming all of the missing items. In another scene, to help a flower grow, kids need to type in words such as "sun" and "rain" (both then appear on the screen). With the iPhone 4S, kids can also use the microphone to speak the name of the object. Rated as having the "best" learning potential by Common Sense Media, the app's many levels of difficulty will keep kids (and parents) of all ages thinking.
