Needs some usability testing
Bought this after seeing in Telegraph newspaper. Two year old likes it BUT the interface has not been optimised for tiny little fingers or little fingers gipping the edges. He gets bored and frustrated with the app really quickly.
Problems that need to be fixed:
- 'Tap here to start' is not obvious, especially for toddlers - back to bad old days of 'click here' web hyperlinks
- Control of the cards is iffy and fiddly: flipping cards and moving to next often get mixed up for a toddler.
- Easy to accidentally go back to home page by accidental finger placement on 'back hand' link and so loosing your place
- Multiple presses on letter or picture layer the audio, so can have same track playing many times … put timer on so can only start new audio every x seconds.
- test this with a toddler to see what problems they have, Read "Krug: Rocket Surgery Made Easy" for hints on how to usability test.
If Huddlestones had better control and was more forgiving - many times moves to next card instead of flipping the current card or visa versa …
More attention to usability and it would be worth four stars. Developers: look at Tozzle for example of how to do it. It may be better on iPad, but have not got one to test on.
Beautifully Designed. Simple to use
I bought this for my 3 year old. Beatifully presented and so simple to use and a great way to teach him the alphabet
Great app - kept the kids amused
Lovely looking app that really kept the kids amused as they are really interested in letters at the moment
