"Intro to Colors just might turn your child into the next Picasso." - Mac Life
With Intro to Colors, the world of color comes alive. Inspired by the famous Montessori Color tablets, this dynamic and interactive app will guide your children through an appreciation of color, from the concrete to the abstract.
YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN
· The basic foundations of color
· Primary & Secondary Colors
· Color Shades & Gradients
· To identify, match and name colors
· To mix, paint and create colors
· To seek, find and select colors
· Fine motor skills
Intro to Colors is a universal app that will work on iPad and iPhone. The app features these activities:
Learn to identify the primary colors, in a series of guided, interactive exercises using the color tablets. Your child will drag, match and tap on red, yellow and blue.
Learn to identify, select and name the secondary colors, in a number of engaging activities using the color tablets.
Learn to appreciate gradients with the color wheel and by arranging the color tablets from light-to-dark or dark-to-light.
Unleash your creativity on this blank canvas with this painting exercise. In the Montessori classroom, we provide only three colors (red, yellow, and blue) when painting.
Explore these creative artist scenes in this seek-and-find activity. Your child will listen for, find, and select the correct color as a fun way to recap their understanding of color.

New version works great and my daughter loves it.
Hey there! We're sorry for the trouble you've experienced with the app. We've made several updates since you wrote in, would you be interested in trying the app one more time? We'll be updating for iOS 11 soon as well, which will hopefully solve the issue you're experiencing! Our apologies again for the trouble, we'd love to get it sorted for you.
This is one beautifully designed app. The simplistic graphics, sound, and effects help keep your attention to the task of learning about colors - primary colors, secondary colors and color gradients. There are also 2 activities - one for exploration (painting), and one to test your ability to fully integrate the material (color search). I love how the material flows from basic matching to being able to recognize the sound of the color's name. In the primary and secondary color sections, you scatter spools of color by shaking the iPad, and then match the color spools. Something I would like to see is the ability to scatter the spools by sweeping the screen with your fingers. There is nothing that makes me more nervous then a toddler shaking my very expensive iPad. Selecting a color in the gradient section by spinning the color wheel is a delight to the senses. In this section, you grade a specific color from dark to light. In the open painting section you are given only the 3 basic primary colors - which can then be mixed in intensity/saturation and together to make new colors. Correct answers are reinforced with verbal encouragement, wrong answers are not acknowledged as "wrong" but give you a subtle nudge to try again. I highly recommend this app.
This app is pretty bad. Don't waste your money. It's super simple so how the programmers made such obvious mistakes is beyond me. For example, one of the main features is matching two like colors. However the blank spots the child is supposed to move the poorly designed thimble graphic to are too close together. This confuses a child about which side to match it to. Also it's buggy. If you tap one of the ridiculously poorly designed thimble graphics and drag it the wrong way it vanishes from the screen. I'm guessing this app was part of a high school app building class or something because no professional programmer would have come up with such a bad design.
