Previously we had the pleasure of looking at Tribal Nova’s iLearn with Poko: Seasons and Weather HD iPad app. We had loads of good things to say about the educational app, and as it would have it, we have the good fortune to be back in Nova’s shaded grove—this time with the iPhone version of the same app. Buckle down, and follow us after the break for a look at iLearn with Poko: Seasons for the iPhone.

Functionality

As with its larger cousin, iLearn with Poko: Seasons is an educational utility designed to teach children of various ages about the seasons and the weather, including the words and terminology related to both. The iPhone app features three different mini-games, each designed for a different age group and each with a slightly different lesson. The first has your child looking at various pictures of the app’s protagonists and identifying weather elements: This includes things like the clouds, rain, snow, and sunshine versus cloud cover. The next game is for slightly older children, and involves identifying inappropriate clothing or objects for the weather. For example, children must recognize that a sweater and galoshes isn’t the right outfit for a summer day.

Lastly, older children are asked to identify the weather on certain days, and to pick out what the protagonist was doing based on the conditions. Each game reinforces a key aspect of weather and seasons recognition, and each offers a valuable lesson. Not only that, but the games are fluid and fun, meaning your child will be thoroughly engaged throughout.

ABC Baby Animals is an excellent addition to early-childhood education for iOS. The iPhone app offers sound, and engaging interaction with your child, and will certainly further your little one’s language acquisition. The app has its hijinx, but at a dollar in the AppStore, ABC Baby Animals is a steal and a joy waiting to happen.

Join the Carnival at Your Fingertips with the Thick Lips App

Thick Lips - EddyL

 

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Price: $0.99
Rating:

Love the classic arcade app “Whack-A-Mole”? Ever take a stroll through a fair or carnival and see people hitting away at quick moving critters, just hoping to win a stuffed animal prize? Now you can experience the same feel, and fun, with a touch of your fingertips. If you think the name of this iPhone app is goofy, wait until you see the characters that you have to get rid off. Thick Lips , developed by EddyL, will be a sure hit with you!

Controls:

While performing my iPhone app review of Thick Lips I found that it is super simple to use. Simply install, create a username, and staring whacking away at bizarre looking creatures. The key here is speed, and to rack up as much points as possible while still clearing the current level. There are random objects that can hit, if you have quick reflexes, and this will add additional points to your total. What does the title have to do with game? Well, at each level, the characters dubbed “Thick Lips” have magical powers that prevent them from being destroyed. They transform themselves to be spiny or invisible, and can also teleport and reproduce themselves. However, never fear, you can use missiles and cannons to help you destroy them. There are 10 levels total, and once you complete the tenth level, you will unlock the endless mode.

Show Your True Colors with MindColors Test

MindColors Test - IdeaSolutions S.r.l.

 

Price: $0.99
Rating:

Do you remember taking personality tests back in school and realizing how close they revealed what type of temperament and behavioral aspects you associated with? Get ready to have your mind blown away with the MindColors Test app that reveals even more about who you are and what type of personality you most likely take on. Read the below iPhone app review to explore the powers and benefits of the MindColors Test app.

Controls:

This iPhone app is basically based on a Mind Colors Test (MCT), a projective personality test solely based on chromatic stimuli, which redefines the existence of close relations between color and personality. The test is not a basic, random predictor, rather, the developer states that the test has been developed by working closely with both trained psychologists and psychiatrists.

The basic premise is that the completed test results will show how personal preference and refusal of colors is based on situation or experience, while the finals answers are based on the individual’s sate of mind. Once the test is complete, it can be saved and emailed for future reference. The iPhone app is relatively simple to use and the layout is more based upon testing than that commonly found in gaming.
