With Intro to Colors, the world of colors 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, iPhone and iPod Touch devices. The app is optimized for iPhone 5 and retina screens. 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. This constraint empowers children to mix colors and create new ones. Your child will learn that the three primary colors serve as the foundation for all colors.
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.

What's New in Version 1.6
Thanks for using Intro to Colors! To make the app better, we've updated it with a few bug fixes. We're always looking for ways to improve and appreciate your support. If you're enjoying the app, please consider taking a few minutes to review our app. It really helps. Thank you!
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.
Intro To Colors
This is a well designed application that does a fine job of introducing children to the world of colors. The app focuses on not just standard primary colors but secondary ones as well as gradient mixtures. The app uses voice narration to guide the users and a tap and move function in order to achieve color identification. The menu design is simple enough to where kids can pretty much use the app themselves without adult interference. This is important in that children can learn not just colors but how to navigate applications themselves.
