65 of the best Android games for kids ages 2-8 (Updated for 2021)

65 of the best Android games for kids ages 2-8 (Updated for 2021)

The Play Store doesn't always make it easy to find the games you're looking for, especially if you're on the hunt for games that appeal to children that aren't monetarily abusive. This is why I've taken the time to search the store for the best games for kids between the ages of 2-8, and so I've compiled this roundup to help everyone out. Keep in mind this is a running list, and so it's continually updated (now with a changelog at the bottom of each page). This is why I have a total of 65 games to share with everyone today, which are broken up between two pages (to ensure easy navigation on mobile), and the entire list is ordered by price.

Sleep tracking apps on Android will soon use less power

Sleep tracking apps on Android will soon use less power

Android apps that have to run in the background like sleep-trackers have had a rough time. Among other things, they suffer inconsistent and unreliable background app limitations across different Android versions, which can interfere with how the apps work at a very fundamental level. This doesn't fix that issue, but today Google is rolling out a specific API just for those apps, letting them pull sleep duration data right from the system itself.

Interview: Diablo Immortal lead designer Wyatt Cheng details what's next for the hotly-anticipated MMO

Interview: Diablo Immortal lead designer Wyatt Cheng details what's next for the hotly-anticipated MMO

Ever since Diablo Immortal was announced at BlizzCon 2018, it has had a cloud around its development. This announcement was poorly received at the time, and in the years following, Blizzard fell silent. Then out of nowhere, a technical alpha was launched last year while Blizzard simultaneously released a plethora of content that detailed the game's design, gameplay, and monetization plans. This was a reassuring maneuver to assuage fears of a blatant cash grab, and the lead designer Wyatt Cheng has detailed further at BlizzCon 2021 what we can expect from the upcoming mobile MMO. This reveal was followed up with an interview with Wyatt Cheng as well as the combat designer Julian Love to dig even deeper, so if you've been wondering about the game's current direction, we have tons of tidbits to share.

Ten alternative gallery apps to better manage your photos

For years, QuickPic was one of the first applications I would install on my phone, without even bothering to use the phone's default gallery app. It was small, fast, efficient, and free, but has sadly disappeared at the end of 2018. For a while, I've been trying to find a decent replacement, and some of the below apps are great candidates to become your next go-to gallery app.

We've updated this post with a few more apps, which we didn't cover in the initial post.
