Great for Early Learning

This app teaches prek kids about words with a twist. I like the way it shows a word in action. My kid loves it. I recommend it.

I have mixed feelings about this app. There are three types of activities you can choose from (words, games, and music). The word activitiy opens to a "too short" list of words to choose from. Once a word is selected, a new screen appears with a few related words that animate when selected. I am not sure why, but the screen goes dk. gray for several seconds after a selection is made (almost as if the app is freezing up). Next, the game section is pretty good with 3 types of word/picture identification quizzes. My only qualm here is the amount of time in between questions (it's super slow). Finally, the music section is rather disappointing. Rather than a list of songs to select from...it's one song; Heads, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes. Overall, I give it one thumb up and one thumb down.

    Wasn't what I expected

    While I am at fault for assuming something that was only .99c would be more than it was, I do think that this should not be marketed to anyone over 3. My child is no genius, but she managed to figure and win all puzzles/games within 10 min of owning the app. I looked through it thinking maybe we missed something, the app is just very very short. One game had only 5 words! Also, this app is very very slow to load from one page to another, all my other apps are quite quick. It was only .99c, but I sure wish I could apply that to something more appropriate. Perhaps I can only say if you have a VERY young child (one, two years old) this would be fun and a challenge to them, but not to anyone older.
