7 Little Words (free Android apps for kids)
This app is great for older kids and adults, especially those who love words games. In my slightly geeky life, we play it as a family game. Build vocabulary and challenge the mind with this sometimes-tricky word puzzle.
There is a lot of free content, in addition to seemingly endless content available as in-app purchases. There is one free daily puzzle, and two puzzle zones (Sunrise and Robots) with 50 puzzles each. That’s more than enough for my family, but those addicted to the word-building fun can buy additional packs of 50 for $.99 each.

Each puzzle features seven definition clues, like “orbiting sphere”, “nautical greeting”, or “helix,” along with the number of letters in each word. Underneath are letter segments (two to four in each box) which must be combined to make the solution for each clue. SP, IR, and AL are combined to make SPIRAL (for helix), for example.
The clues can be answered in any order, and each user gets 15 free hints. The hint feature offers just as much information for the selected clue as the user requests, from the first letter, the first tile, or the whole word.
7 Little Words is highly recommended for any word game lovers and all those looking to build vocabulary and thinking skills.
