If you liked our “Fun with Directions” app, you’ll also love More Fun with Directions too! This iPAD app continues with the same playful, colorful and engaging format with a focus on 12 concepts: turn on/turn off; up/down, front/behind, on/under, put in/take out, above/below.
For a demonstration of this app, check out our YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zAm7HSenSQ
Help the monkey go up the tree, but watch out! He likes to throw those coconuts! Pop the bubble that is above the bird. Put the elephant under the larger table. Help the squirrel go down the tree. Turn off the red radio.
More Fun with Directions is designed to provide a fun and engaging way to practice listening, following directions, colors, comparatives (larger/smaller) spatial concepts, auditory memory and auditory processing. From the simplest of directions (“Turn on the lamp”) to the more complex (“Do you see a musical instrument with black and white keys? Put it behind the couch”) your child can grow and learn with this game over time. Colorful, vivid art and animations against a white background combine to create a complete game experience without visual clutter. Sound effects and surprises keep the game engaging! This app is a great choice for a toddler/preschooler, or any young child who would like to practice listening to or reading directions!
Features include settings for text on/off, (to practice reading vs. listening) selecting specific concepts, and the desired level of play: easy, intermediate, and advanced.
An added bonus that is included in this app is the optional “Superstar Direction” which allows additional practice for remembering (“What did you have to do?”) but also expressive language. The child’s response is recorded and played back. Superstar Directions are surprise questions that pop up at random times, but can easily be turned off if desired.

Ratings and Reviews
Love this additional Fun With Directions app! Like the other one it is clear and concise with colorful pictures and is fully customize able. I like the ease of use and the various concepts that are taught ( in, out, over, under, etc.). My only addition to both apps would be the inclusion of the various acceptable ways to express concepts - over & above, under & below and so forth. This would expose children to a larger vocabulary and help them should they be around someone who says things differently than their family. This would also be useful with nouns as well. Overall this app has so many useful means of play and can be easily adapted to speech goals, fine motor skills goals and conceptual goals. Highly recommend this app and it's predecessor; it is well worth the price!
More Fun With Directions HD
More Fun With Directions HD is engaging and fun. Perfect for students who struggle with receptive language and concepts of in, under, and more. With 3 levels of difficulty and 12 different concepts presented with fun visuals and great feedback, the user will quickly begin to understand the concepts and improve direction following ability. This app is a winner with my special needs students who enjoy the special effects when they choose correctly. Educators will love the ability to track progress and set up for more then one player. As the child plays the score is shown and if the concept presented is a new one. The settings are easy to set and navigate. As with ";Fun with Directions" this app is colorful, easy to use and a winner.
Developer Response ,
Thanks so much for your kind words and the 5 star review. We really appreciate that you took the time to share your experience with the App Store users. We hope you are still getting lots of use from the app! The Hamaguchi App Team (yes, 4 years later--Apple is just now allowing developers to respond to reviews)
It's another great app:)
Hamaguchi has done it once again! What a great extension of your first following directions app. The settings can be adjusted to the needs of the student. There are also three different levels of difficulty to choose from. I also like the recording feature that really tests the auditory memory skills of the student. The graphics are colorful, bright, and engaging! I especially like this app because some of the directions are conditional. Thanks for developing another awesome app. It is just what the "Speech Therapist" ordered.".......Another great app!
