This activity has been designed to encourage exploration of the whole screen and teach basic touch and drag skills including options for single or multitouch. Drag your finger around the screen to reveal coloured shapes and patterns, with different sound effects that change pitch. When you lift your finger the tiles will fade.
Black background, different sound effects and bright colours make this a very motivating activity for children with visual impairments as well as being great fun for the very young. The great feedback makes this an ideal cause and effect activity that can help develop hand eye co-ordination.
• Black background and bright colours ideal for low vision.
• Single touch to encourage finger isolation and pointing - may be easier for some users to understand.
• Multi-touch for maximum feedback.
• Simple interaction and fun for very young children.
Update for latest iOS

Please do not waste your money on this app!!! There are so very many interesting apps out there for folks with low vision!!! This would be fine if it was free but it is way too predictable and will not hold the attention of a child or adult with DD for more than a minute or two!!! Just a waste of money!
Lots of fun!!!
I teach very, very low Special Ed students. I am finding apps to put on the classroom iPad. One requirement is that the apps have to be appropriate for older students. They may be learning delayed, but they don't want "baby games" all the time. I have used the "Help kidz learn" web site for years in the classroom and have some of their software on the class computer. So I knew that this would be a quality product and lots of fun. I am not disappointed. This game is fun. The graphics are bright and full of color. The sounds are fun. All of my students love it. The music teacher thinks it's great. The art teacher gives it two thumbs up. And if you are thinking it is only for extremely low functioning students, you're wrong. My grand kids (gifted and talented students) are fascinated with the game. I wish that there was an easy way to chose the sounds. As it is now the sounds are random. Some of my students have hearing loss. They like the high pitched sounds such as wind chimes, but don't respond to the low pitched sounds such as drums. That is my only suggestion for an improvement for future additions. It is well worth the money. I will be buying more of the apps from this developer. They understand what my students need. Keep up the good work!!! This is a post script to my review of this app. Before you play with this, go to the "settings" program on the iPad home window. From there, turn off the "multitasking gestures" button. This makes the app run better. Otherwise, when the student swipes his or her hand across the screen, or touches the screen with multiple fingers, the app shuts off or switches to whatever last app was on. (This is a good hint to remember with lots of game apps.) When done working with the app, turn multitasking back on.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
