What's New in Version 2.0.1
Bug Fix for Camera Functionality.
Great! Lots of choices. Parents get this for your kids.
I really enjoy this app. My kids do too. The felt objects are great and there are several options. As a future update it would be cool if you could start out with felt squares and "cut" to create your own shapes!
I am surprised there aren't more reviews.
This app is used by my class and is a preferred program. There are endless possibilities for the pictures that can be made with this program. There are a variety of categories as well as choices within them. You are also able to resize the pieces to fit your pictures. I recommend this program to other teachers.
The Gold Standard
I don't really know any way to describe this other than it is pretty much the Gold Standard for what a felt board app should be. Very well thought out, User Interface feels incredible. After a minute or two, you forget that you are using an app on an iPad and the experience transforms into what feels like, looks like and essentially is a traditional felt board------ but with all the awesomeness that software brings to the table. I would pay $20.00 for this app because it accomplishes and surpasses it's intended goal. Thank you Software Smoothie.
