The best Apps of 2011 for babysitting your kids.

I don’t know about you, but I simply can’t get enough of Best of the Year lists. I found the New Yorker’s list of best apps of 2011 amusing, not because the games on it were enlightening, but because the premise is this: here are the games that best pacify screaming children. I particularly enjoyed the description of Jetpack Joyride.

 I honestly don’t know what this game is. Whenever my kids play it, they don’t let me get near the phone. It’s both the perfect game and the worst game.

I totally agree with that last point, but because it is such an awful distraction.
