What's New in Version 1.2
Improvements and lots more fun puzzles.
Minor bug fixes.
Compatibility with iPhone.
This is a neat game --teaches logic skills and how to rotate shapes to form pictures. I would buy again as kids like and does teach something however I was looking for a game to teach geometry to kids and this fails at that. If they incorporated the puzzle making conclusion with demonstrating calculations for area or perimeter of shapes or even said the shape names and taught differing ones etc would be better. It's a cute and fun game but failed the mark for an educational tool which I was after from description.
A great open-ended way for kids to explore shapes.
There are A LOT of puzzles in there and they get updated, so good value. My kids would like an option to choose colours please!! Apart from that, I love the app.
