Yesterday, the same developers released BrainPOP Jr. Movie of the Week, which is targeted for younger kids (5-8): BrainPOP Jr. Movie of the Week!
The first BrainPOP app has been in the Top 100 free education app rankings for several years now and the new app moved into the Top 50 in its first day of release.
** IMPORTANT! Please keep in mind that there is only one free movie per week (although I did find at least one more in that was free). The rest require a subscription via brainpop.com. The free movie of the week, however, is over time going to provide more free content than most free apps, so it's definitely worthy of inclusion as a Good Free App of the Day. **
Additionally, if there were any app I would recommend trying as free and considering paying for, it would be this one and BrainPOP Featured Movie. Please read my review of BrainPOP Featured Movie for more info.

Every day we pick what we affectionately call the Good Free App of the Day, an app that we have downloaded, tested and certified: It can't have a ton of ads or just a little content with a ton of in-app purchases.
It also has to be good.
We then present them to you to read, download, and share so, based on which ones got the most hits, here are your Top 100 Favorite Free Apps!
We've done our best to only include apps that are permanently free, but sometimes developers do change their minds so please leave a comment if you find an app that's no longer free.
