Martha Speaks Dog Party (CNET 100: iPhone Apps)
Please appreciate that by admitting that this is one of my favorite apps, I'm forced to come to terms with how utterly domestic my life has become. You won't find social networking apps or cocktail recommendation guides in my Top 10. Who has time for a social life when my two year old's attention span is about to snap and I need all the help I can get to distract him before dinner's ready.
That's where Martha Speak's Dog Party comes in handy (as well as a few others on this list). For my two year old, the educational vocabulary building angle of this app (and the show it's based on) is a little over his head. He'll grow into it, though. Besides, you don't need a high IQ to find satisfaction in popping the game's cartoon balloons and controlling a virtual dog tongue licking a plate of spaghetti clean.
