When you're ready for another family road trip, you can pass the time by playing road games. Slug Bug, I Spy and the Alphabet Game - all of these games will entertain you for miles. But not all of them have their own app.

But this family favorite does. If you grew up playing the License Plate Game, then States N' PL8S is an app you'll love. It's only available to Apple users, and even thought it's not a free download, we think it's worth $.99 price tag. So will you, once your car is filled with happy passengers.

Plates 2

States N' PL8S lets you play the popular road trip game where you "collect" license plates from all 50 states. Except, it lets you play as a group and keep track of the score. It includes a map that marks all the states you've collected, and you can link up to your Twitter account to tweet out your progress.

For kids, the app also includes fun facts and trivia about each state. It also includes puzzles for all 50 states, and cool metrics. Track how many days have passed since the last plate was found, or see which plate is from the farthest location. You can also calculate the distance between your location and the state of the place you've just found.

Not only will your kids have fun with the game, they'll learn state capitals, mottos, flags and more along the way.
