If you own a smartphone and have kids at home then you’d know the minute you leave your phone unattended, it is likely to end up with one of your kids who will do all kinds of experiments on it to satisfy their curiosity. Well, why not help them use it in a better way? Kid Mode is a free Android app that has educational games for kids of age 8 and under. It also locks the home button to prevent the child from messing with the phone.
You will need Flash for the games to run. Without Flash, kids can only watch videos. The app also has things like storybooks, art studio and video mail so it is likely to keep your kid busy for considerably long periods of time. Games are customized for different age groups, and you also get weekly activity email reports on what your kid’s been playing.
