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.

Max on the farm pro by Andras Szabo -Review



20140321-000034.jpg

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.

20140321-000118.jpg

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



iPad Screenshot 1

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 Hangman by Emma Mills – Giveaway



iPad Screenshot 2

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!
