Road Trip Apps for Android

Road trips can be an opportunity for family bonding, and sometimes a time for whining -- these apps can help with both. Put a modern twist on classic car activities with an Android version of Wheels on the Bus. Bring along your phone or tablet, and your kids can express their creativity (no markers to keep track of), play games together (no pieces to lose), collaborate to solve puzzles, learn a little something, and more -- all on the go!
