“With the massive adoption of Android smartphones, parents everywhere want to safely hand over their phones during those moments when a child needs to be entertained,” said Mark Williamson, CEO and co-founder of Zoodles. “Kids have played more than one million hours on the computer with Zoodles, and we’re thrilled to extend that momentum to the mobile environment, where parents often need help most. Because the latest Android phones run Flash – the leading format for the vast majority of kids games on the web – we’re able to pull hundreds of the best educational games into one free app. It’s something nobody else is doing.”

While the service is free and the applications will always be free, Zoodles does offer a premium membership as well. The premium service will let parents block ads, promote subjects, set time limits, and much more and costs $7.95/month, $39.95 for 6 months and $59.95 for the entire year.
