Funny Directions by Speecharoo Apps

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
"Funny Directions" is a revolutionary new app for the iPAD which will have kids rolling with laughter while they practice listening and following directions! There are 4 colorful scenes to choose from: "The Beach", "The Classroom", "The Park" and "The Bedroom", all filled with playful characters, hilarious animations, silly sound effects, and plenty of surprises which are sure to capture your child's imagination!
From the simplest 1-step directions ("Tickle the crab"), to more advanced 2-step directions ("Pick up the ant and put it on the paper airplane") to even more complex 3-step directions ("Get the helmet, place it on the bear and put the bear on the skateboard"), kids can grow and learn with this game over time.
Designed by two certified speech-language pathologists (Brooke Stulz & Syndy Margot), "Funny Directions" is a great choice for a toddler/preschooler, or any child who enjoys interacting with images and animations on the screen. As a reward after each scene, kids will love popping the balloons which float up in the air from Kit the Kangaroo's pouch.
While your child is playing this highly entertaining, very funny game, you can be reassured that they are learning a variety of different aspects of language (nouns, verbs, and prepositions) and utilizing their auditory memory and attention capabilities.
Features include 1-step, 2-step & 3-step directions for all 4 Scenes (On the 'Home' screen, simply tap Balloon "1", "2" or "3" to make your selection), visual cues for incorrect responses, an audio repetition option, automatic advance or manual advance to next direction, text on/off (to practice reading vs. listening), "Score" display, and an "Email Results" feature at the end of each scene detailing which directions (if any) required prompts.
We welcome and appreciate your feedback! If you need any assistance with anything, have any questions or would like to share your feedback and/or suggestions, please contact us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.

minor bug fixes
Love this App.
This is a really fun and engaging app that allows kids to practice listening and following 1, 2, and 3-step directions. It's also super entertaining to watch and listen to the funny animations perform after correctly following each direction that's given. My students absolutely enjoy this app.
Additionally, after downloading this app, I had noticed a small glitch in the app. I immediately emailed the Speecharoo team my concern and within a couple hours I received a email back ensuring me that the team would work on the issue and have it fixed asap. I was given daily updates on their progress and within a week the app was updated and working perfectly. I am very thankful for the time and effort they have taken into making such a wonderful product. I highly recommend this app and fully support such a dedicated and hard working team.
My students constantly request this app! They love the animations and funny characters; they actually have no idea that they are "working"
