I use Pushbullet a lot to move things between my phone and my desktop.
If I want to send a text with a lot of fiddly information, I will often type it on my PC and send it to my phone using Pushbullet.
Sometimes I’ll decide I want to stop viewing a web page on my phone and switch to my desktop. I can just push the page from my phone to a tab in my browser. I do this a lot for online shopping. (It’s easier to checkout using a keyboard.)
You can build real games with Stencyl (http://www.stencyl.com/). It’s kind of advanced but it might be a good option if he outgrows some of the simpler teaching tools. I would have gone nuts on this if it had existed when I was a kid, but I was a weird kid.

When would I use Shake? – We designed Shake to let you quickly record
agreements for everyday transactions that you otherwise might do with a
verbal “handshake” agreement. For example, you’re lending someone you know
$300 – given the stakes, you might not need a long, intimidating loan
agreement, but wouldn’t it be nice to get something in writing? When does the
money need to be repaid? Is there a penalty if it’s late? Use Shake to agree
upfront on simple questions like this and you can avoid hassles later (not to
mention awkwardness and hard feelings).
When should I not use Shake? – Shake isn’t for complex or high-stakes
transactions. Are you selling your company? Shake is not for that. You should
talk with a lawyer. Are you selling your used computer on Craigslist or hiring
a freelance designer for a basic job? Shake is perfect for either of those.
Spell Quest: Grimm’s Journey (via) is a fantastic little mobile game that has began to suck up all of my “in-between” time when I’m sitting around waiting for something. The game is a lot of fun, has great animation, and best of all, it’s free!
