So This Is How Kids Play The License Plate Game These Days

Everyone's played the license plate game, but has anyone actually ever won? As in actually spotted plates from all 50 states? How did we ever even keep track? Well now there's a way, with State Plate, a gorgeous iPad app that turns your tablet into a touchable scorecard for the classic road trip pastime. It's got some cursory information on every state, lending a vaguely educational air to the activity, and it seems like a clever way to keep your kids diverted for a good chunk of your trip. Because really, they're never gonna see those Hawaii plates. $2. [iTunes]
