All too often I review apps that are one dimensional. I think you’ll find in my iPhone app review that Puzzingo combines the best of fun and learning in a fabulous iPhone app.
The Puzzingo iPhone app puts fun puzzles and a whole lot more in your child’s hands. While they touch the interactive screen your little one will actually build a circus one attraction at a time.
Each attraction will have learning puzzle challenges, from learning to identify ocean animals to singing the alphabet song and counting. The variety of knowledge will keep the Puzzingo iPhone app interesting for even the fussiest tyke.
Once they complete a puzzle challenge children are rewarded with an interactive screen where they will pop balloons, learn words and more. And once they’ve completed a puzzle Puzzingo will move on to the next exhibit, letting your toddler choose what attractions go where.
While this app will appeal to youngsters, it definitely has a broad appeal for any child that loves animals and puzzles or that is learning their numbers and letters. That’s the kind of versatility that makes the Puzzingo app shine.
Developers at 77SPARX Studio are part of a cooperative called Moms with Apps, an organization dedicated to encouraging wholesome, educational applications. You can tell they put a great deal of thought into the educational factor of the Puzzingo iPhone app.
The app uses multiple learning methods, including audible, visual and even spatial recognition. If you are a concerned parent who wants to encourage your little one to learn in a fun way, the Puzzingo iPhone app is a wonderful solution.
Since the Puzzingo iPhone app is intended for youngsters, the user interface is appropriately simple yet surprisingly fun. A recent update made the app’s menu more difficult to open accidentally with a slide mechanism. There are no advertisements or areas that would accidentally cost any money in the app. It is very carefully designed to be child safe.
There are also a few mini games tucked into the user interface such as a fly swatter and a perpetual balloon popper sure to surprise and delight your little one.
Kudos to the developers for keeping this app as fun and easy to use as it is educational.
It’s hard to put a price on educating your child. Puzzingo puts hours of learning fun in their hands for $2.99. This is a low to midrange iPhone app price, and I think it’s worth every penny. Do yourself a favor and next time you hand your child an app, make it one like Puzzingo.
Puzzingo 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.
