What's New in Version 1.9
Performance improvements and minor bug fixes.
Excellent vocabulary enhancer.
Colorful, interactive, easy to navigate. Eye-catching graphics and ear-catching audio.
As an educator (10+years early elementary), I prefer the method that this app teaches the alphabet. While “learning the ABC’s” is also important, learning about letters at a young age within the context of actual words I think is terrific. Also, the chunks of time where the child can’t interact with the game are EXTREMELY short. So the quick “I’m bored now, clicking to something else” factor is lessened somewhat. Overall, extremely useful for kids any age that can effective interact with the iPad.
I note regarding a previous review complaining about the word difficulty. If you have a child in a pre-reading stage (let’s say 3 years old +) then something like “Endless Reader” would be more-appropriate AS A READING PREP. This game, while it’s packed with fairly complex words, is still really more of an alphabet-builder. That being said, a child just starting to read could very well come back to this game and really enhance their vocabulary going forward.
(Final note: For the record, I don’t know the developers of this game from a hole in the ground. I’m gushing about it because I have a 2-3 year old and have been through dozens of mostly-worthless “education” apps. Can’t speak about the prices versus the “going rate” for educational apps. I just know the learning component is worthwhile.)
Cute app, but one dimensional
I took a gamble on the hefty $7 price tag in hopes that my 3-year old would love this app. The animations are quite adorable, but I found that overall, the app is just ok. The words are pretty difficult for small children (i.e. Bellow, gargantuan) and after they match the letters and watch a short (albeit adorable) definition of the word - that's it. I would have liked to see some associated activities for the price I paid. (Maybe tracing activities or other language expansion). This app would've been worth maybe $3.
Wow what an awesome learning tool for all kids
Even kids with complex learning difficulties are inspired to learn and interact and sound out letters with help of the engaging interactive animation features in this fantastic edutainment package. Even if you think my child could never do this try it anyway. My two cents based on our experiences!
