What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed the voice over for some of the words.
Okay app for free
This is an okay free app for teaching basic vocabulary to young children. The pictures are nice and the voice is clear. Some of the words are not exactly geared to young children though. For example, at the police station, one of the words is "holding cell". For young kids, it should be "jail" or don't use that picture at all. In the toy store, it shows a chess set ...for the age that this is geared towards, toy cars or a dollhouse would be a better choice.
There are two locations that I couldn't access (pet store & music store). The app shuts down when I click on them.
Suggestions: it'd be nice if the user could choose select/de-select words to display. Also, it would be nice if the user could record their own labels, both as an administrator (the re-recorded labels would be heard when the child plays the app) and as a user (pictures are shown without voice label & the child records the labels and then play them back. The admin recording function would help with word labels that vary by region (trolley vs. shopping cart vs. shopping carriage). The user recording function would be very motivating for kids, plus a good way to see which words they have learned.
This would be a good app if it didn't suddenly close without warning. Tapping on The pets and music store cause it to immediately close after it opens. This happens on occasion with the other categories;however, it is most consistent with the instruments and the pets. Please FIX! Thank you
