These are the apps that either we discovered on our own, or were recommended to me from another source (probably from Dyan at And Next Comes L.) (Sorry, I may not have added links to all of these, but I’ll try to update it when I get more time.)
As a lot of these aren’t free, but if you install AppZapp on your phone, you can set up custom alerts for particular apps so that you get them on sale or free. You can also track a particular developer, getting alerts for new apps getting released.

Toca Boca – this developer makes amazing apps for kids! They have many everyday life scenarios for kids to explore and encourage creativity.
Lumos Labs – these are early and intuitive learning apps that have lots of mini-games that are fun for kids.
I’ve got a long list of other apps that have been recommended, but that I haven’t had a chance to personally check out yet (some because my son is past them, others because he’s not there yet, and some because we don’t have enough time/money to try them all at the same time.)
