20 Free Educational Apps for Kids

16 of 21
free app for kids, Stack the States

Stack the States Lite


The iPhone Mom — a popular app-review website written by a mom for moms — calls this "a fantastic educational app that's also a hoot!" The quizzes and games help kids learn about state shapes, capitals, abbreviations, bordering states, flags, and more. Who knew geography could be so fun! You can only "earn" five states in the free version, so if your child gets hooked on filling up the map, you'll need to buy the full version (99 cents).

Ages 7 & up
For iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch (available for Android for 99 cents)
