Listening Power Preschool HD is the proud recipient of the Academics' Choice Award for Smart Media! http://www.academicschoice.com/apps/listening-power-preschool.ph (This is the lite version of that app)
Listening Power Preschool Lite HD provides 90 listening practice questions on an iPad! This app was created by Patti Hamaguchi, a licensed speech-language pathologist, and developer of the popular Fun with Directions app. It is perfect for children at a language age of 3 ½ through 6. Does your child need practice listening or working on receptive language concepts? Listening Power Preschool was designed for children with weak language comprehension, AD/HD and autism, but ANY child can enjoy these fun activities to strengthen listening!

By turning on the “text on” feature, it can also be used for reading decoding/comprehension as well!
This app should ideally be played with an adult who can teach and cue the child when appropriate during the activities. As with all screen time, app play should be limited. We recommend short sessions of approximately five-ten minutes for most children at this level.
There are 5 activities in the app:
Listening for Descriptions: Adjectives such as colors (blue, yellow, green, gray) dirty, largest, little, shortest, tallest, happy, hot, spots, stripes, curly, crunchy, crooked, longest, not red, green house with a pink door, green ball with blue stars, isn’t scared, and more!
Listening for Directions: Concepts such as on the bed, on the chair, under the chair, under the wagon, in the basket, raising his hand, sitting down, pointing to the teddy bear, in front of a tree, first, behind a couch, and more!
Listening for Grammar & Meaning: Concepts such as finding a singular vs. plural form, pronouns (her, his, you, I, they, he) who, where, cut with, verb tenses such as is swimming/swam, washed, at school and more!
Listening for Stories with Pictures: A story is read with accompanying pictures and sound effects, followed by questions about the story such as who, what, and where questions.
Listening for Stories without Pictures: This activity is essentially the same as above, except the child is not shown pictures during the story. The child must stay focused and imagine the story, then answer simple questions about the story. An animation after the story shows some aspect of the story.
Features include: Easy, Intermediate and Advanced levels within each activity. Auto Advance/Drop makes the questions easier or more challenging, depending on your child’s choices; Bubble game included for a fun break; data collection, pop-up reward animations, individual and group play for up to 75 users; text on/off feature available to work on reading decoding and comprehension, options for 2, 3 or 4 choices to be shown.

Ratings and Reviews
Looks good so far
I have had very limited use of this app but I like what I see. My only complaint I have is calling it "preschool" when I know I'll have older kids who might be insulted by an app for preschoolers....

Developer Response ,
While this review is a few years ago, Apple is now allowing developers to respond. Please know that Apple would never approve an app with no working sound. In fact, the problem you are experiencing has a very simple fix. You need to turn OFF the mute button. Yes, that's the problem. Please check and we hope you will update/fix your ratings and review of this app. In the future, please contact us at email@example.com anytime you have an issue with any of our apps. Thanks!
