Kids love tablets. In fact, according to Nielsen, 7 out of 10 children in tablet-owning households have used a slate. The big question is what apps you should download for Junior, whether you’re looking to give your children a head start in math or reading, an app to get their creative juices flowing or a family-family game to kill some time on the way to grandma’s house. We combed through all the app stores for every platform (from iPad and Google Play to Kindle and Windows) to name the best tablet apps for kids. Plus, we broke our picks down by age, so parents can quickly and easily find the content-appropriate apps for their child.
Why buy a stand-alone baby monitor when you can simply turn your smartphone into one using this app? Simply place your iPhone near your child, and Baby Monitor will call or send an SMS message to a number of your choice when it detects noise. You can even use the app with your older children, by receiving updates on when they get home from school or go into an area that’s off-limits. Plus, the app syncs with FaceTime, so you can see your baby while they’re waking up to make sure you don’t miss a second.
