Apps That Can Bring Families Together

So often when family members use devices, it's for a solitary experience. Or, at least, it's not about connecting to people who are actually in the room with you. The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way! There are great apps out there that actually encourage bonding, and some help you connect meaningfully with those who might be far away. Whether you're in the mood to get outside, play a game, or bust some moves, check out these apps to create some fun family time. Also, check out apps for collaboration, great sibling play-together games, and the very best movies to watch as a family.
