iLearn With Poko: Emotions, Feelings & Colors ! : Written iPhone App Review
Over the years, we’ve experienced quite a number of educational applications for the iPhone and iPad. Split another way, we’ve had more than our fair chance to sample the lot, pick out the best, and offer up our best recommendations. That being said, absolutely nothing beats a new title that’s part of the i Learn With series by TribalNova. Their latest offering, Emotions, Feelings & Colors ! is no different than the rest, offering stellar gameplay with an educational twist, fantastic graphics, and engaging characters from top to bottom. For our full review, you need only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
As with all the other excellent entries into the iLearn With lineup, Emotions, Feelings & Colors comes with a basic yet sturdy framework to help educate your children: It allows them to play with a series of mini-games, interactive utilities and other such fun oddities with an educational goal in mind. Each new addition offers a fresh educational tool: This time around, we’re dealing with those items for which the app is named— Emotions, Feelings & Colors.
The app primarily focuses on helping your children identify, name, and otherwise put a face to those emotions they feel, those they see in other children and adults, and those they need to be able to communicate. Along the same lines, the app also tries to help them get a better grasp on such things as colors, patterns, and the ways in which colors interact. It’s a very artsy sort of outing, and after all—considering what we do for a living—we appreciate putting creativity, emotion and feeling at the forefront of our children’s education. It’s enriching, refreshing, and a whole new take for the genre as a whole. We truly aren’t seeing that anywhere else.
Graphics and Artwork
However, we don’t just love the iLearn With Poko series for its educational potential. No, the real charm and magic of the series comes in its packaging. We have always equated the lineup to that of a rock-solid public television show, and we stick by that. The characters you love and know are all here, including Poko. You’ll get the same vibrant and inviting graphics, as well as the animations and clickable elements that children love in an app. All of these help to keep the child engaged, learning and entertained. And as any parent will tell you, that’s often easier said than done!
We’ll spin it to you this way: If you’re a parent looking for a new educational application to give to your children, then this one is free. It comes with a lot of unlockable learning potential, a whole roster of cute characters and graphics, and with no price tag attached. Looking to expand your child’s growing artistic and emotional promise? It may not replace good parenting, but Emotions, Feelings & Colors will certainly help out along the way.
Emotions, Feelings & Colors requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
