There’s no reason to put off starting your child’s education when you find apps like JumpStart My ABC Book for iPhone and iPad from developer Knowledge Adventure. Make learning letters fun with this interactive mobile alphabet app that’s packing a lot of extra features sure to keep your little learner engaged.
I stumbled across a lot of educational features while performing my iPhone app review of JumpStart My ABC Book. This iOS app does a lot more than go through the alphabet. Users may select from two different learning modes, “Read Mode” and “Learn Mode.” By combining games, visual learning, audible learning and a lot of fun JumpStart My ABC Book brings the alphabet to life for your youngster.
“Read Mode” allows a child to create and save sticker book pages for every letter. Each sticker and letter may be tapped on for audible learning reinforcement. There is also a poem and song for each letter for your child to listen to and learn.
In “Learn Mode” the app will display a letter of the alphabet and say the name of the letter out loud. The left-hand side of the screen will populate four different stickers. Your child must identify the correct sticker that begins with the letter on the screen, then drag and drop it to the middle of the screen. If they get confused they can tap on the letter to hear the sound it makes. Students can earn one to five stars in this game to encourage them to come back and play again.
Every child learns things differently, so I really appreciate the variety of learning opportunities in the JumpStart My ABC Book iPhone app. This app combines several teaching techniques in one convenient place. Images reinforce language skills and enhance recognition. There are even numbers peppered in this application for additional learning opportunities. Poems and songs appeal to children and make skills easier to absorb while adding a fun twist to an alphabet app.
iOS Apps designed for younger children should be easy to navigate, colorful and fun. JumpStart has a great track record of creating children’s apps and their My ABC Book iPhone and iPad app is no exception. Bright colors, clear graphics and a simple touch button design make using this app a breeze. Side buttons link saved sticker pages and the app’s other game mode easily on each page. A standard back button in the lower left-hand corner makes navigation easy as well. I wish there were no chances for children to be lead out of the app, but there is a small “More Apps” button on the app’s first page that leads to iTunes.
JumpStart My ABC Book will be released with a promotional introductory price of $.99. Later the app will be regularly priced at $1.99. Be sure to get in on the ground level to save 50 percent on a delightful educational app sure to make your child shine. Multiple learning methods make this app a great value.
JumpStart My ABC Book 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.
