Times are kept to on the hour and half-past the hour for a nice easy introduction to telling the time. Get 5 stars and you’ll unlock a pic of your monster!
Times are tested at 5 minute intervals, introducing the concepts of “past” & “to” - “...5 minutes to 10”, “...quarter past 4”, “...quarter to 12”. Getting an answer wrong will remove a star you’ve already earned.
You’re almost good enough to join the monster elite! You’ll be tested across the full range of the clock. Beware though! The monster’s are not going to give up their prize easily in this round, you’ll have to earn 5 stars in a row to please them! Get a question wrong and you’ll have to try again or carry on practicing.
Language support: English, French & Spanish.

What's New in Version 1.3
This app is great for kids to review their telling time skills. The Monsters are very cool with different colors, textures, and sounds. The clocks are specific so that your child can count by 5's and individual seconds. The army time option threw my child off a little bit, I would maybe put that in the "settings" section. Your child is rewarded with photos of the Monsters doing silly things. I think it'd be neat if they moved when you clicked it, or you could snap a photo to include yourself in the pic. Overall, it's a great app.
I played this with my daughter for about 5 minutes, enough to figure out that it didn't register a correct answer when the clock hands were correctly pointed to the time displayed in the text box. Don't waste your time, money or disk space on this app.
