Looking for something entertaining, yet educational, for your preschool age kids? There are so many iPhone apps out there that are either a waste of money or a waste of time, but this educational app definitely does not fall into either of those two categories. The JumpStart Preschool Magic of Learning iPhone app, also available for the iPod Touch and iPad, by Knowledge Adventure, is designed for your young ones to learn and grow and have fun at the same time. At the time of this review, the app is available at a special price of $.99, however, it will soon return to the original price of $2.99.
During the iPhone app review I was delighted with a plethora of fun games including: “Bug Catcher” (a color, shape, and number recognition game), “Present Search” (a game that teaches how to follow directions with a surprise incentive at the end), “Matching Duckies” (a memory game), and “ Barnyard Fun” (a game that teaches identifying the difference between upper and lower case letters). There are about 15 games in total featured on this iPhone app, and all teach an essential skill valuable for your young ones, whether it’s math, reading, or critical thinking skills. The layout is very simplistic, and your young ones can easily navigate his or her way through the games while learning at the same time.
The graphics in this universal iOS app are the best part. With bold and bright colors that will appeal to any young one, the graphics will definitely hold your child’s attentions and keep them captivated for quite awhile. Cute looking animals and characters are an additional plus, along with simple and inviting screen backgrounds. The games on the app will definitely draw your child in to the world of learning in no time. This is definitely a good learning game for children who learn better with visual examples.
The sounds that are featured in this game are suitable for young kids. With happy background music and cheerful sound effects, this is definitely a must for a younger viewing audience to be engaged. Your preschooler will most likely clap and squeal with delight along with the cheery music, and maybe you will too.
Overall, I would have to say that this iPhone app is definitely a worthy addition to your app library, especially if you have kids of the preschool age. With the world becoming more technologically advanced and electronically centered, this app is great way to get your young ones educationally growing with the help of hi-tech developed programs.
JumpStart Preschool Magic of Learning iPhone app requires iOS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
