The Best Apps for Your Little Brainiacs

Read next


The waning days of summer may have some kids scrambling to squeeze in as much extracurricular fun and sun before the start of a new school year, but parents can help their little geniuses put on their thinking caps and refocus on learning with a bumper crop of edutaining apps. Flip through our picks of some of the newest and coolest apps that’ll delight students of all ages and get their noggins back into gear.


Parents who fondly recall the days when Schoolhouse Rock taught us about the basics of grammar, math and American history—from Conjunction Junction to I'm Just a Bill—will be eager to introduce our kids to the next generation of music-inspired lessons with Flocabulary, an educational app that encourages kids to learn about everything from fractions to photosynthesis using hip-hop videos. Designed for K–12 students and their parents, the app features more than 800 educational videos on subjects ranging from history and math to social studies, language arts and life skills. Subscriptions start at $4.99/monthly.

For all ages. Free for iOS and Android, with in-app purchases.
