Baby Symbolizer is a visual/sound sensory stimulation app designed to both delight and focus your child’s attention by encouraging cognitive and motor development starting from birth.
Based on more than forty years of scientific research on what infants perceive at successive stages of development, Baby Symbolizer offers 12 bold, fully interactive high-contrast symbols that make unique sounds as infants watch, touch, explore and discover.
You’ll be amazed how your infant is captivated early by navigating this app for them, and how much they’ll enjoy interacting with this app directly as he or she grows.
Stimulate and improve visual tracking, scanning, and object permanence, which is believed to speed up myelination of brain cells.
Recommended Ages: Newborn through 2 years.
> 34 high-contrast graphic symbols, viewable together and in a “slideshow” for continuous play.
> Slideshow settings for display speed and duration.

High Contrast Stimulation:
Scientists have found that babies given appropriate stimulation show sustained developmental advantages over babies in less stimulative environments. Researchers discovered that newborns not only prefer to look at high-contrast graphics, but that such images can help:
> increase an infant’s concentration skills and attention span
> focus and develop eyesight, hand-to-eye coordination, visual tracking, and object permanence
> stimulate the creation of synapses (brain cell connections) by speeding up myelination of brain cells (insulation of nerve pathways)
> calm and soothe a baby (when bored)
> enhance natural curiosity, neck strength and head control.
What's New in Version 1.4
My son is 5 months old, and for about the past two months this app has ended EVERY inconsolable cry-fest, and almost instantly. I know the day will come when it doesn't work this well for him, but with the time and stress this has saved us it is probably the most essential app on my phone... and I have a lot of apps.
"A steal at twice the price!"
Good but crashes
When using the interactive feature, the app eventually goes silent and then crashes. Obviously very frustrating to a little toddler.
My 9 wk old daughter loves this! Smiles & Coos when the slideshow plays. She is completely fascinated & engaged
