"This is a bright, clever, full of fun app for little ones."
"So many fun features are included in this app."
--- A PERFECT app for kids with 24 different mini-games! ---
In Around The Clock, you play your way through a whole day where every hour has its own game! Make the alarm clock ring, make breakfast, pack your backpack, and complete all the other challenges that await during the day!
24 MINI-GAMES - ONE FOR EVERY HOUR!
Around the Clock features a total of 24 mini-games, one for each hour. There are different games with different challenges, from brushing teeth to biking home from preschool! And the night’s eight hours doesn’t mean sleepy night games!
BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATIONS AND INTUITIVE PLAY
Fine and clear illustrations make it both easy and fun to use this app. The 24 mini-games are all so intuitive that children can play all by themselves. There are no time pressures, you can’t go wrong and you don’t need to be able to read.
A FUN INTRODUCTION TO THE CLOCK!
Around The Clock is primarily not an app for learning to tell time. Instead, the app is an introduction to the clock, the different hours, and how a day can look. Learning the clock is simply both more fun and more important after playing Around the Clock!
Updated for the new iOS version
Ratings and Reviews
Sweet but short mini activities for Pre-K crowd
I don't get the really poor ratings- I think the mini activities are cute, and can be used to build vocabulary and language skills- it looks like a time-telling app was expected but from the description actually that is not the goal of this app. Instead the activities are based loosely on what time of the clock they represent- for example for 9 p.m the activity involves preparing a bed for sleeping- there is a window and as the clock progresses the lighting changes from daytime to night and so on. I do wish each activity could be easily repeated or prolonged. A favorite is the bicycle wheel that you can move with a finger swipe. I would love to be able to access each mini game more easily, instead of having to flip through the hours of the clock. This is more for the 3-4 year old crowd in my opinion, due to the level of learning skills/themes. If you keep that mind you will likely be happier.
Around the Clock
Around The Clock is an app to introduce children to the concept of time and the movement of clock hands. As the hands come to stop on a given time the player will be able to watch a mini scene, play a quick game or complete a task such as make a bed. The graphics are colorful and will appeal to smaller children who will enjoy developing their fine motor skills. Because it does not teach time I recommend this app for Preschool age children.
This app is absolutely pointless. I don't think a 2 yr old would even get anything out of this. For the price it is totally worthless. There are far more apps that would be so much more educationally sound than this even for a toddler. Don't bother. I received this app for free bit it's still not worth keeping.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
