Video Touch App Roundup by Sound Touch – Review & Giveaway



iPhone Screenshot 2

The universal series of Video Touch apps, by SoundTouch includes bright colorful images and allows your child to see an image and when tapped brings you into a video about the image.   This series of apps is designed for toddlers and preschoolers, as well as early elementary school aged children and it would be a fantastic addition to any speech therapists repertoire of apps as well since it encourages naming of objects, expressive and receptive language through “find an object”, “name an object” which can be driven by a parent or a therapist.  The video’s allow you to narrate or provide a context to how the object operates, what it is, repetition, object recognition and more. Each app features 12 different items including animals, vehicles, musical instruments and xx with four videos of each of the objects.  The video’s feature English with plans to add German, French, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, Mandarin, Hindi, Arabic and Hebrew in the next week.

Each of the four apps has a similar concept with 12 different objects specific to a particular theme with 10 – 20 second video clips in a rotation of four. The videos are well done and provide a good portrayal of the object in use such as a vehicles, musical instrument or in its natural habitat for birds and wildlife.

Working on teaching your child about animal names?  Video Touch – Animals provides 10 – 20 second video clips of 12 animals with four videos for each animal which range from a cat, dog, horse, frog, chicken and more.  Each video provides information about the animal in it’s natural habitat. I liked that the app encouraged speech by naming the animal and having a video of them while providing repetition and additional learning opportunities. All of the Video Touch apps provide easy navigation within the app to one another allowing you to see multiple different animals and objects at the touch of the screen.

iPhone Screenshot 2Video Touch Vehicles has 12 different vehicles ranging from a bus to a fire engine and a train. Similar to my earlier comment, each of the 12 vehicles has four videos associated with it.

In terms of improvements, if you do not own all the apps and touch the bottom of the screen it will take you directly to iTunes with no parental gate. Since these apps are aimed at young children I would like to see that addressed. It would also be nice during the video if the video said the name of the object (with the option to turn on or off) while also displaying the name of the object. I would also like to see actual images of the object as a choice for the main screen rather than the current cartoon type images.

The developer is planning to add a number of supported languages in an upcoming update. There are external links to iTunes but not the internet. Of the four apps, there is a free one so you can try it out before purchasing the set.

What we love…

Easy to use app that grows and customizes to your child’s needs for early reading and literacy

What we’d love to see…

Parent dashboard, ability to record stories or vocabulary within he same profile and highlighting of sentence as it is read after correctly completing it

Summary

Flexible and customizable early reading app that practices literacy skills, sentence mapping and grammar both in a pre-programmed and custom version of the app. Great for kindergarten through early elementary school.

Our Rating


Review originally published April 2014
Sentence Builder by AbiTalk is an app designed to help improve literacy and reading skills of your preschool and early elementary school aged child.  This app designed for iOS on the iPad provides a significant amount of flexibility as you customize your own pictures, words and sentences allowing you to customize the curriculum to your child’s specific needs.  The app provides multi-user profiles allowing it to be used both at home with parents, in a school based classroom setting as well as by speech/reading therapists with children on their caseload. It also integrates with Dropbox allowing for integration between multiple iPads as well as creating the ability to back up work. The app allows for practice of literacy skills, sentence mapping and grammar as well as proper arrangement of words to make a complete sentence. AbiTalk began in 2011 when founder Emmy Chen was looking for a way to teach her son reading and phonics in an interactive way. They currently have a portfolio of over 75 apps in both English and Chinese.

One of my favorite features of the app is the ability to create your own sentences. This feature allows you to create a sentence using your voice, words and images allowing customizability that worked well with my sons sight words we were working on. The app includes a library of images or allows you to upload your own to go along with the sentences. As your child masters simpler sentences, they become more complex. For example, a sentence might start with David sleeps and expand to include a description of where he sleeps. The narration in the app is clear and easy to understand. I also liked that the app covers content from kindergarten to second grade and beyond.

In terms of enhancements, it would be nice if you could customize the current sentences which are preset in the app or even record them yourselves. In addition a parent dashboard which allows you to see progress to date would be helpful. I also would like to see the ability to record “stories”, currently I create another user to focus on specific words and vocabulary but it would be nice if this could all be under the same profile. When reading the sentence aloud it would be nice to highlight the words similar to when they are placed to reinforce them to children.

Overall, this is a great app which allows your child to work at their own pace and focus on reading. The rearranging of words is helpful as children can hear the sentence and put the words in the proper order. I would suggest that parents spend time using the app and reviewing how to videos on YouTube prior to letting their children use it to allow for practice and understanding of capabilities.

Be sure to grab the app for only $0.99 just in time for Mother’s Day!

Avokiddo ABC Ride by Avokiddo – Review



iPhone Screenshot 1

What we love…

engaging, bright colorful animations that help children practice their ABC’s in a fun and interactive way

What we’d love to see…

Tracking in the parent dashboard for areas of improvement

Summary

Top notch ABC app that also teaches spelling and phonics in a fun and engaging way

Our Rating

Avokiddo ABC Ride by Avokiddo is a universal app for iOS designed to help your children learn their ABC’s in a fun and interactive way with Beck and Bo. This app allows your children to ride a bike along a path and for each letter there is a “stop” where they learn and practice a specific letter while having trying out each letter in a way that helps them remember. The app not only practices letters, it also includes spelling practice, a game along with each letter along with interactions which help children remember each letter and familiarize them with a specific word to remember it. This app practices expressive and receptive language, spelling, fine motor skills including dragging, gripping and pinching.

My son loved the magnet and spelling out the various words in the app – I liked that he could put the letters on in whatever way he wanted to as long as they were correct, however, it would be nice to see a setting that requires the letters to be put on in sequential order. The app allows for exploration and pairing of words that begin with the appropriate letter, through a game like setting that encourages children to play while learning which is an outstanding way to engage and teach. I also liked that the app taught phonetic sounds as well as the ability to sound words out – this encourages early literacy and pre-reading skills among the youngest children and encourages them to pair sounds with specific letters.

In terms of enhancements, I would like to see the ability to “turn off” the additional apps button in the parent dashboard. Even though it is child locked, my son asked why we couldn’t get the other apps. I would also like to see a percentage correct when the spelling activity is done as well as some basic reporting available in the parent area as well.

This is one of our favorite ABC apps today and provides great educational content and activities for children that engage and teach at the same time.

Fun English Course by Studycat Limited – Review



What we love…

flexible app that teaches a variety of verbs, adjectives, sign words, letters and numbers to children from toddler through late elementary school

What we’d love to see…

multi user functionality; ability to track progress in a dashboard rather than having to start over each time; better instructions for the mini games

Summary

This app would be a good one for English as a second language learner as the curriculum included is straightforward and will help children learn in a sequential way. For a child that is already a native English speaker, it might be useful in early intervention or other skills based learning for children with a speech delay.

Toddlers, kindergarten and preschool children learn English through play activities.Fun English Course by Studycat Limited is a universal app designed for iOS to teach children English through a variety of games and activities targeting children from preschool through elementary school with older learners learning English as a second language. Through a variety of games including colors, animals, numbers, food, vehicles, body parts, fruits, clothing, items around the house, and sea animals children are treated to a variety of activities to help teach them about the basics about the item through a set of exercises including finding an object in a scene, spelling, memory cards, pairing up items, listening skills and more.

iPhone Screenshot 3

In terms of things that I liked, I found the app engaging for my five year old as we worked on word identification, item identification and basic English skills. He is currently working on sight words at school – so there were times I took items in the app out of context and focused on skills specific to his needs rather than what the app was trying to teach him. Having the different sections allowed me to help him target specific areas that he needed to focus on. The app engages and I liked that the games did not repeat over and over again and helped focus in on specific skills.

I also found some of the games needed more instruction as they were a bit “hit or miss” as to how to play them especially the fish game in the numbers section. To complete this game you needed to shoot a pearl at the fish in order to make him count – we figured this out after tapping on him multiple times without success. The app does have a locked parent section which requires a swipe. Given that this targets children from the very young to older, I’d like to at least see a math problem included here to prevent kids from getting into external links as well as social media. I would also like to see a dashboard of items that your child has worked on and areas that might need additional focus as well as an option for multiple children. Given the price of the app – I was disappointed to see that it did not include that functionality as I can see this as a tool that speech therapists as well as classroom teachers and parents would use, but it is one of the higher priced apps at $12.99 and this would help it appeal to a wider audience. I would also like to see counting to a higher number such as 20 or 30 included as this is a skill that preschool/kindergarten students are expected to have.

This app would be a good one for English as a second language learner as the curriculum included is straightforward and will help children learn in a sequential way. For a child that is already a native English speaker, it might be useful in early intervention or other skills based learning for children with a speech delay.
