PBS Kids Super Why ABC Adventures (best educational Android apps for kids)
Super Why ABC Adventures ($3.99) is one of the top selling paid educational Android apps at the time of this writing. It's a terrific app based on the PBS Kids show Super Why, with five different games and four videos covering the ABCs. There are very few apps as good as this on Android (it may be the best ABC app) but know ahead of time that when you first open the app it says that it is "downloading additional game assets to your device" and it takes a LONG time for that to happen. Definitely worth it though.
Are you ready to go on an around the world, ABC adventure with the “SUPER WHY ABC Adventures: Alphabet" app? Your child can do just that while playing a comprehensive collection of five interactive literacy games that help build strategies and skills to master the alphabet.
