Top Apps for Kids Includes Angry Birds

Angry Birds.  Have you heard of this app for kids?  Actually it’s not only for kids, adults love it too and it is really addictive.  The premise?  Shoot birds from slingshots and try to get the bad green pigs that have stolen their eggs.

Yes, it’s a mindless game, but a cute one.  And it is sooo amazing that even little 3 year olds can figure out, intuitively, how to play all these mobile apps and kids online games.  It really blows my mind.  What were you doing at age 3?  Certainly not anything tech oriented!

But check it out … there’s a reason Angry Birds is so popular.
