ABOUT BUSY SHAPES
Busy Shapes helps children improve their ability to handle simple objects through a series of puzzles, in which they must change simple shapes and place them in proper holes. Along the way, the app responds to each child’s actions with positive guidance and motivation. Plus, the app’s digital exploratory playground regularly refreshes with different objects, which keeps children interested and engaged.
INSPIRED BY JEAN PIAGET
Busy Shapes is inspired by the pioneering works of famed Swiss scientist and intelligence expert Jean Piaget (1896-1980), who believed that “children are little scientists”, and that a child's thoughts are built through experiences that encourage him or her to engage in the reasoning process.
INNOVATIVE, SCALEABLE PLATFORM
Busy Shapes’ innovative scaleable platform for evolving experimentation lets children take advantage of the time they spend on touch screens -- so they aren’t just having fun, but learning every second of the way.
Busy Shapes features a special “kid-friendly” design that compensates for the fact that when young children hold an iPad or iPhone, they often have a finger touching the screen.
“PASSING” SWIPE CONTROL
Busy Shapes features “passing” swipe control that is essential for young childrens’ quick hands (i.e. even if a child's finger reaches an object after he or she was already touching the screen, the object is still grasped as intended).
POWERFUL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)
Busy Shapes’ powerful AI supports each child’s unique learning journey. For example, the AI tracks the time it takes each child to complete a level, and increases or decreases difficulty accordingly.
To prevent children from exiting the app by pressing the “home” button, Busy Shapes features customizable Guided Access. This feature also disables selected parts of the screen for safety and protection.
Parents can access real-time monitoring and get advice on how to guide their children. They can also track their child’s progress updates via Apple’s Game Center.
Busy Shapes’ seamless interactive game area never blocks or limits children, and lets them freely access shapes. The menu is also neatly hidden away.
Sometimes the best learning is a combination of cognitive exercise and physical play. Busy Shapes’ automatic memory saves a child’s place in any particular game, which makes the app an ideal complement to physical play and for shorter games.
MULTIPLE LANGUAGE SUPPORT
The app is now available in: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Indonesian, Malay, Vietnamese, Thai, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese

What's New in Version 1.5
Great app Wish more were like it!
My only issue is I am not sure how or if you can go back to the start, I have an 8yo and a 3yo I got for the lil one but when the big one uses it I can't get back to where the lil one was, maybe I just don't know how to yet. Puzzles are great the way they flow is great, my lil one doesn't understand the parts where you have to change the color, not the colors that r shown but when u hav to put the object in between 2 colors to make a new color. But the games awesome wish more were like it!
Great for toddlers!
My daughter absolutely loves this app. She's three and at a stage where she needs lots of attention. But that doesn't work so well when you are at a restaurant or just need a break to get some housework done. Rather than put her in front of the TV where she turns into a zombie and gets very little value, we wanted an app that would be interactive and keep her engaged. She loves the reward of figuring things out one level at a time. Thank you!
Advances too quickly
The app is great but it advances too quickly. My 20-month-old loves repetition and not being able to go back a level or back to the beginning is frustrating for him. I realise he's a little young for this and so only gets to play for 5 minutes about once a week. In that time he wants to feel he's succeeded at something, when he starts to struggle with the more advanced levels he loses interest pretty quickly.
