"ShapeBuilder earns an edu.Mac.nation daddy score of "A" - Immediately my son was able to locate & move the pieces into position. The audio quality is fantastic, the application is stable, & the variety of puzzle types kept my son engaged & entertained. Together we worked on completing the puzzles & saying out loud what the images were."

My 2 yr olds most favorite app
I’v had this shape builder app for about 3 years now. My daughter loved it and learned how to do it quickly. Now my 2 yr old son absolutely loves this app. I showed him how to do it when he was 15 months. I think it teaches him a lot of eye/hand coordination and word association. He was so upset about it not updating to IOS 11. He always grabs my phone and says “shapes mama”. I had to tell him that it needs to be updated. I emailed the developer and now it’s updated for IOS 11!! He will be so excited to be able to play shapes again.😁 Thank you so much for updating his favorite app. 👏🏼👏🏼 👍🏼
Happy to see update for ios 11
This is one of our favorite apps. It is an easy puzzle app, with pieces which snap into place, and visual and auditory reinforcement. I’m so happy to see the update for ios 11!
