Educational app while travelling with kids

While traveling with my kids, I really enjoy playing an app called "Maddie and Matt's Happy Earth" with them. It's one way I could spend our vacay more fun and much meaningful.
Do you play such apps while on the road? yay or nay?

For family travel apps, or apps for kids during travel, the most important attribute is depth. Does the app have enough to engage the child for an extended length of time? Whether you're on a road trip, or a cross-country flight, if the app doesn't hold the child's interest, it's not going to be of much use to you. For toddlers and preschoolers, My Playhome or any app from Toca Boca [such as Toca Kitchen] is great for lengthy engagement. For grade school kids, try Stack the States or Tales2Go, an app that lets your child, or the whole family, listen to audio stories of familiar books and tales for kids aged 3-preteen. For general travel apps like city guides, I think the most important attribute is accuracy with the map functions. You don't want to be in a city you don't know and follow the map directions religiously to an attraction only to not have it anywhere close to where the app says it should be.
