Parents have every right to be selective when downloading educational apps for their children. In iTunes every other app insists that they are the best, the latest, the most effective, etc. The things that set apps apart now are the details, and the Children’s ABC iPhone app from Vivendo Software grasps this subtlety with aplomb.
Looking for an amazing app to help your child learn the alphabet? You may have found it. Peruse my iPhone app review of Children’s ABC to see for yourself.
As its name might suggest, the Children’s ABC iPhone app introduces letters to your little one. Each letter of the alphabet is displayed on a single screen, framed by hand painted art work created for the app by artist Gun Porsklev.
Slides consist of the letter, a word starting with the letter and an interactive graphic illustrating the word. Delightful and amusing animation comes to life with the touch of your child’s finger in the Children’s ABC iPhone app.
There is also an audible component to this application. Touching any word or letter cues a friendly voice to speak it. Animations also have fun accompanying audio, creating a complete picture for eager imaginations.
Thorough and thoughtful touches make the features of Children’s ABC pop like a classic story book. This app is sure to delight your young learner.
No two learners are alike, and the Children’s ABC iPhone app takes that into account with a multi-pronged educational approach. Visual learners will benefit from the clear, colorful letters and words. Hearing the word and letter out loud will help drive the lesson home.
The app uses both male and female voices, creating an egalitarian environment that will not alienate little girls or little boys. The beautiful graphics will help each letter embed itself in your child’s memory.
This educational approach gives the app a wide range of appeal and higher chance of success.
Layout & Design:
I mentioned the Children’s ABC iPhone app’s delightful, hand painted graphics briefly, but I do want to take a moment to extol the charming edge these images give the app.
Flicking to the left and right through the alphabet reads like a retro story book. Changing pages and viewing information is easy, but accessing the main menu is a little more difficult, keeping kids on task. Developers definitely knew what they were doing when they created this app.
To put a unique, educational and (best of all) extremely portable alphabet app in your child’s hands currently costs $.99 in iTunes. It’s easy to spend a dollar for your children’s education, and I think getting this app will be a no brainer for parents. Get it.
Children’s ABC iPhone app requires iOS 3.1 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.
