Click here to play episode. Apps for Kids is Boing Boing's podcast about cool smartphone apps for kids and parents. My co-host is my 9-year-old daughter, Jane Frauenfelder.
In this week's episode Jane and I talk about Subway Surfers, an endless runner game where you get caught painting graffiti on a train car and have to run away from the police. It's free in the iTunes store.

If you would like to have us read your favorite game or gadget recommendation on the air, or if you have a question you'd like us to answer on the show, email us at email@example.com. Include your age, and the city, state, and country you live in.
If you're an app developer and would like to have Jane and me try one of your apps for possible review, email a redeem code to firstname.lastname@example.org.
