Pandora Radio (best free Android apps)
Today's Good Free App of the Day is my favorite non-game app and one of the most popular cross-device apps. I connect my iPhone to my car stereo every day to listen to Pandora. I'm recommending it more to you, as an adult, than as a child's app, although it does include a large number of children's stations (Disney, The Wiggles, etc.) if you're on a long car trip and need some entertainment.

Pandora Radio creates a personalized radio station just for you or your older child if you're looking to save money on music downloads. You input the singers and groups you like and it plays them AND other music that you might like - and it's very good at finding music you might like.'
** It does, however, include explicit channels/music if you choose them, so it's not for kids to use by themselves.* *
Perhaps you want to teach your children the majesty of Steve Perry's voice? Or the panged longings of Adele? What about learning all about Lady Gaga's poker face?
What is education without emotion?
There are some ads that can be removed by paying a monthly fee, and you do have to sign up for an free account, but it is well worth it.
