Awesome System!


I put this down in my computer lab in front of one student. She figured out Tangrams, then moved on to Words. By the time she finished Words, 8 more students had come over to watch and join her. Then we got out Newton. That one took a moment of instruction, but after that they took off. This is truly one of the best iPad apps I have ever seen. I would like a little more instruction on Newton, but otherwise, it's all great! I'm anxious to order another couple of sets and get more kids involved. I leave it with this: the little girl I started on it played it for about 10 minutes and said, "My dad asked me what I wanted for Christmas the other day and I couldn't think of anything. Now I want Osmo!" That pretty much sums it up! Fun for kids, adults, special ed - everybody loves it!

I (we) are incredibly disappointed by this update. This has gone from my absolute favorite Osmo game, to my absolute least favorite, in an instant. Taking away the grid screen takes away the engineering quality, and also makes it more difficult in a way that has nothing to do with intelligence, and everything to do with an iPad's limits, namely light- and there being not enough of it. Perhaps you can sell a little flash light, so our paper markings are bright enough to be seen... The grid screen was essential to this game. I wish I hadn't played the "before" version. I wonder if we would have liked this version if we had not played the one before? I certainly feel like we would be frustrated, as we are in this reality. We would love it if there was a to have the grid screen back- any chance?
This is the first review I have ever written on the interwebs. How unfortunate that it is a negative one. :( Please note, we truly love our Osmo, and THAT is why this is so depressing.



This app is a blast on our iPad Air 2! The app installed easily and play is intuitive. Both adults and kids (I suggest kids be 5+) enjoy using objects and drawing lines to accomplish the challenge of each level. Solid colored objects work best but the camera's ability and software interpretation of non-solid colored objects or objects with a lot of surfaces or textures create interesting effects. Newton is easily our favorite game, so far, of the available apps (Tanagram and Words being the other available apps).
