Children can learn few things in an innovative way through the apps on smart devices. Android developers have been clever enough to meet this need by developing several apps for children. One of the best children app for 2013 was Endless Alphabet. Making use of wonderful animation, Endless Alphabet explained meaning of various words to children. This app provides a list of words (more than 50) and upon choosing a word it displays the word at the screen center of our smart device. The word is surrounded by related letters in different colors and allows the user (kids in this case) to form the correct word by dragging the letters in their appropriate place. Once the correct word is formed, this app explains it's meaning using some funny animation (cartoon character). It also comes along with 7 word puzzles. This interactive educational app for kids proves the old adage that "Learning is fun".
