Best Apps of the Year: 2021
Whether you want to teach your kid a new skill, listen to the latest podcast, be guided through meditation, or play a fun game, there's a mobile app to suit your needs. Our editors have gathered the best apps released this year that are great for kids and families. Christine Elgersma, Senior Editor of Social Media and Learning Resources, loves Kinderling Kids Radio for its large library of high-quality audio content. The creators have curated the content by time of day, so kids and parents can easily fit a podcast or song into their routines. Senior Editor of Video Games & Web Jeff Haynes applauds League of Legends: Wild Rift for condensing the complex action of the computer-based esports game into a portable version for a mobile device, and without losing any of the fast-paced gameplay or tactics. It's an incredible way to introduce the game to a new group of players while also keeping veteran skills sharp while they're on the go. Check out these apps and the rest of our top picks for 2021 below.
