Apps for Kids is Boing Boing's podcast about cool smartphone apps for kids and parents. My co-host is my 10-year-old daughter, Jane.

In this episode, we review Video Star, an app that lets you make your own music videos with your favorite songs. It's free in the iTunes store. We also talk about Skindex, a Minecraft skins maker, and present three Minecraft Steve replacement skins that Jane designed, including this Boing Boing monkey.
