Great practice for telling time
This app provides the user plenty of ways to practice telling time, from simple identification of the time on the clock in the beginning level, to elapsed time in the advanced level. There are 3 games that can be played, each with three levels of play--beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The app keeps track of the players time, so each player can try to beat their own best time by playing over and over again. Each player is only required to use a screen name to register. New avatars are unlocked as the player accumulates points. It is too easy, though, for a player to purchase another app created by this developer. I know there are ways to set restrictions to prevent this, but it doesn't keep me from disliking this feature enough to only give 4 stars instead of 5.
Nice Time App
This is a nice app to work on learning how to tell time. There are three different ways to practice time. I like that it can be done on the 12 or 24 hour clock. I also like the three different levels to practice. I had a little trouble when I wrote in the time because my writing was not always the best, but it will get you to write clearly so in the end it was helpful.
