This interactive game develops language, reasoning, and sorting and classifying skills in your learners. Players must "clean up" by putting 75 photographic images of toys, food, and clothing away in the correct shopping cart, refrigerator, or toy box. Each target is introduced by its label ("Where does the Apple go?") in each round where players see 15 unique images. Correct responses receive visual and auditory reinforcement while incorrect answers are corrected by a visual prompt of the correct answer flashing. After all targets have been seen once, they are reintroduced in a new, randomized order. The App takes data for the percentage answered correctly across rounds as well as sessions in which the App is in use. This app builds foundational sorting skills for students just developing their sorting and classifying skills.

Ratings and Reviews
Only 3 categories, but they are done well
This app is much better after your last update. The pictures look great. I like getting to see the accuracy at the end of the session. It would be nice if you had a menu button available while playing. The other buttons all have a back to menu button, but when you click on the play button there is no way to go back unless you close out the program. Also, I think it would be nice if you have an options menu that lets you do things like change the amount of reinforcement, remove the verbal prompts, and option to have a next button or automatic movement to the next target. Also, the only place that I saw that told me there are 15 targets per session was on the itunes description. I think you should add that info in your about this game section. I like that you have so many images, but with other developers putting out apps with more than three categories you're really limiting yourself. Do you have any plans to make other sorting groups? (Animals, Transportion, etc.) It would really make this a more comprehensive sorting app.
An important concept
I am a parent of a special needs child and a former teacher. Kids need to sort! It is a skill needed for many things. Like to see it classify more. I think it is really important for developing pattern sense, as well. To recognize the attribute in a pattern, kids need to sort first. It would be great if there was a store on the app for kids to go. They could choose items to sort into categories by color shape size design, etc. It would be fun for them. I absolutely agree with the speech pathologist about the language piece. This is crucial. It would be great if the voice could say what object is because kids with special needs say "this that there" because their vocabularies and word retrieval is limited. Good modeling ie, naming the objects to encourage vocabulary expansion. I gave 4 stars because I am glad that someone is staring the process.
Needs an upgrade
This is a great app concept, but it needs an upgrade.
I realize it free (which is really nice and worth the download), but the graphics should be better. I get bothered by poor image quality on all these apps. You can see the white background leftovers from the fast silo job on the photos. Even the yellow reward star art gets blown out. You should fix these things, then charge $.99 IF you need to. I'd pay for better quality. I'd be angry if I paid for this as it is now.
Also, to clear up confusion, the closet doesn't really look like a place you'd put clothes or shoes (it's jam packed with other stuff and it's also smaller than the basket and the toy box). And the basket looks like something you'd have in your home for other things than food. Maybe show a refrigerator or a fruit bowl instead?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
