What we love…

Child-friendly features and good mix of educational games for preschoolers.

What we’d love to see…

A bonus game in place of the present sticker activity as rewards.

Summary

An enjoyable collection of preschool learning games for the farm-loving kid.

Our Rating

Max on the farm pro is a collection of 4 farm-themed games for children aged 3-6. It is a totally child-safe and child-friendly app with no instructions or set-up required. Kids just need to launch the app and they can start playing right away. The only option available for parents is to turn off the music.

20140321-000044.jpg
There are 4 games in this app and they are played in an endless loop of progressive difficulty levels of play. There is no end to each game, once the player reaches the highest level, the game automatically returns to the first level. With many levels included for each game, you can expect your kids to be kept occupied and learning for some time.

Find the items
Set in a tree house, children’s visual discrimination skills will be at work while they look for 30 hidden items in 10 slightly different set-ups.

20140321-000143.jpg

Patterns
From the simple AAAAA to the complex AABCAABC pattern, there are 45 different patterns for your kids to solve. Pattern recognizing is made more difficult here, with 2 missing objects instead of the usual 1 and the missing objects are not necessarily placed at the end of the sequence.

20140321-000208.jpg

Matching
Players are to place 3 different vegetables, letters, numbers or patterns in their matching wagon in each level. There are a total of 17 levels with 57 different combinations of objects to match.

20140321-000227.jpg

Puzzles
There are 13 puzzles of farm animals (plus one of the barn) to solve. Puzzles are not too difficult to complete and the pieces snap together easily.

20140321-000234.jpg

Completion of each level is applauded and rewards come in the form of a sticker activity which resets itself when you closes the app. Perhaps another type of rewards can be considered e.g. a bonus game.

With child-friendly features, attractive design and valuable educational content, Max on the farm is a good choice of preschool learning app. If your kids love all things related to the farm, then they are in for a treat because this app is FREE for App Friday, Mar 21!! Download today and enjoy!

All-You-Can-Read! World’s picture books at your fingertips! “EhonKids” by Moonbeams Inc. – Review

What we love…

narration well done, ability to mirror to the television and colorful graphics

What we’d love to see…

ability to turn off automatic renewal, removal of glitch related to downloading books and the amount of time it takes

Summary

Overall, at the introductory price the app has a good amount of content for the money.  I do hope that the prices will stay low until the amount of content is increased as it seems to be a great reading app with a variety of different stories from around the world which will expose children to different cultures and fairytales.

Our Rating

All-You-Can-Read “EhonKids” by Moonbeams, Inc is a universal app designed for iOS that features a variety of fairy tales from around the world.  Currently there are 18 books available with additional fairy tales being added every month.  The stories feature movie mode, ability to mirror via AppleTV or Reflector to your computer/television, page turning (read it to myself) which allows parents to read it to their children, channels that allow you to pick a specific genre of books or recently released ones and world folktales.  The developer Moonbeams, Inc. is based in Tokyo Japan and has a mission statementof, “to brighten the hearts of people worldwide.”

The stories currently contained within the app are bright and colorful and the included narration is well done.  My son enjoyed having me read the stories to him rather than the “movie” mode which he felt was for younger children.  I also liked that there were channels for the different types of stories which made it easier for us to find what we were looking for rather than having to hunt through the entire app to find new content or stories.

In terms of improvements, I wish there was a way to turn off the automatic renewal – currently you must switch it “off” to prevent the renewal from happening 24 hours before the renewal is due.  The subscriptions do currently have a discount, which allows you to get more content as part of the app.  I would like to see the current discounted pricing structure remain in place given the amount of content included in the app, as the library grows it may make sense to increase the subscription price.  The stories also take quite a while to load when downloading the first time and there were several times that I was exited out of the app during mid-download resulting in restarting the download.  I would also like to see an option where you can purchase specific titles without having to buy the subscription as my son had favorites that he enjoyed in the fables section.

Overall, at the introductory price the app has a good amount of content for the money.  I do hope that the prices will stay low until the amount of content is increased as it seems to be a great reading app with a variety of different stories from around the world which will expose children to different cultures and fairytales.

Spelling HangmanLooking for an app that will help your child with spelling homework and tests?   This app is a fun way that allows parents to enter and record spelling words and enables children to learn by playing hangman.  Children have to enter the letters for the word in the correct order, but if they make a mistake, then a hangman will appear.  There’s a “sneak” peek button which allows them to see a word – but it adds to the hangman!

 Vincent the Anteater´s Space Voyage  By El Pudu Studios – Review

Vincent the Anteater´s Space Voyage By El Pudu Studios – Review



20140312-111728.jpg

What we love…

Retro, handcrafted feel, entertaining and interactive story with a message

What we’d love to see…

Page navigation, bookmarking, word highlightig

Summary

A delightful interactive book app,with an important message as part of the story. It teaches children ways better care for our planet, and also that they can be part of the solution, but delivers it in a subtle way .Highly recommended!

Our Rating

Vincent the Anteater´s Space VoyageVincent the Anteater´s Space Voyage is an adorable universal app from El Pudu Studios. It can be read in 10 different languages including English, Spanish and French. Vincent is created from felt and all the other characters and scenes are also created from fabric. It is an interactive adventure that subtly teaches children about ecology whilst they enjoy an interactive story. The app is child-friendly with no external links, in-app purchases or adverts. The app has optional narration in English, which is well-done, but no word highlighting as it is read. It is enhanced with animation, nice background music and realistic sound effects.

Vincent the Anteater lives in the forest with his fellow anteaters and a wise old Armadillo called Peter. Vincent is a science-minded Anteater and his friend Peter teaches him all about nature with his powerful magnifying glass. Vincent loves to eat ants- all kinds of ants, but his absolute favorite are Green Hairy Ants. One day he discovers there are no Green Hairy Ants, so he asks his friends what to do. The other anteaters think dancing to the Great Cosmic Anteater will solve the problem, but Peter the Armadillo is worried and advises Vincent to fly into space to ask the Great Cosmic Anteater what to do about the missing ants. Vincent builds a rocket to fly to the sky.

20140312-112008.jpg

As Vincent through space he lands on 9 different planets, and the reader can choose which order he visits them. On each planet Vincent encounter a different problem, the reader can help Vincent solve the problem and at the same time learn about keeping ourselves and our planet healthy.

20140312-111820.jpg

Vincent finally reaches the Great Cosmic Anteater and finds she is not what he expected, and can not tell him the answer to his problem. Vincent returns home and realizes that he can solve the problem of the missing Green Hairy Ants himself.

I really love this book app – it has a lovely retro, hand-crafted feel about it. Every page has interactive elements for the reader to find- and they are very much part of the story, such as helping Vincent slurp ants up with his long tongue and helping him build his rocket and solve problems on the different planets. If the reader can’t find the interactions hints appear to help. Vincent is a likable character and it is fun to explore different planets with him, and help him to make them better and more eco-friendly. The book app can be enjoyed at two different levels -younger readers will enjoy reading or listening to the story and older ones can tap on the text box to learn more about the various ecological issues. There are a few changes I would like to see in a future update- I would love to see bookmarking, a page navigation option, narration added in more languages, word highlighting and the ability to delay the interactive elements until after the narration is completed.

20140312-112041.jpg

Overall this is a delightful interactive book app. I love its handcrafted, retro feel and the interactions, sound effects and animations that bring the story to life. This story has an important message: it teaches children ways better care for our planet, and also that they can be part of the solution, but delivers it in a subtle way. It also gives an opportunity for older children to learn more about ecology and the message behind the story. Highly recommended!
