App Reviews and Articles, October - December 2016

Here are the iPad app reviews I published in October, November and December, 2016.

Children’s iPad App Review, Sago Mini Forest Flyer

I took Sago Mini Forest Flyer for a flap to see if it’s an app that kids can create with. It is! Fun will definitely be had as youngster’s invent back stories and current stories and future stories for a cute bird named Robin. Read more at The Book Chook.

More app reviews from earlier months at The Book Chook.

Children’s iPad App, The Complete Fairytale Play Theater

The Complete Fairytale Play Theater really encourages kids to create their own stories. They must choose a stage setting, characters, props and a music soundtrack. As they slowly build a story, they can add more scenes, move characters around and even add their own voice as narrator of the story.

Children’s iPad App Review, Farm Story Maker Activity Game

"Any app you plan on using with young children needs to work very well, and this app passes with flying colours. Its array of story objects and characters can be navigated with a swipe, and placing elements in scenes is a breeze.

Robot Party app, chosen in Books, Apps and Gift Ideas for Kids and Other People, 2016

"There’s lots of fun to be had as children select their wacky robot parts, activate their finished robot, then launch it into party mode." Read more at The Book Chook.

App, RelationShapes, chosen in Gift List 2016

"RelationShapes is easy to navigate, and kids are supported by being shown a simple animation that explains what to do. I love the art work offered to kids to manipulate - simple, bold and colourful shapes with quirky extra design elements that encourage creativity e.g. googly eyes, opening doors, wheels etc" Read more at The Book Chook.

App, Sketch-a-Song, chosen in Books, Apps and Gift Ideas for Kids and Other People, 2016

Sketch-a-Song is "...so brilliantly easy to use, and that it encourages us to create music. There’s a tutorial to get you started but the app is intuitive and very responsive." Read more at The Book Chook.
