A great app for babies! Baby Shapes will help calm and soothe your baby as well as increase concentration skills, enhance natural curiosity and stimulate the creation of brain cell connections.
Research has shown that the secret to infant visual stimulation lies in high-contrast colors. The development of a newborn's eyes - the structures of the retina that perceive color - haven't matured enough to perceive the values and intensities of red, blue, pink, yellow, purple and green. Black and white are the easiest for babies to perceive and interest in these strongly contrasting colors will pave the way for your baby's brain development.
As all babies are different so are their needs. Baby Shapes gives you the power of configuration! You can make changes in the configuration screen and discover through experimentation what stimulus your baby reacts to the best, and with time and patience, adjust these to suit. Start with a simple shape of black and white on black or white background. In time, you can introduce red as another contrasting color and as the months pass and your baby's eyesight and brain develops, you can progress to more complex shapes and begin to introduce colors to further stimulate your baby.
Play Baby Shapes with your baby, interacting as your baby focuses on a shape. In time, your baby will learn and discover the possibilities and joy of playing with the moving shapes. In time, you may be interested to learn more about how your baby has been interacting. The statistics screen can provide you with useful information about the progress and development of your baby.
HUGE NEWS BELOW! (also warning for existing users)
Baby Shapes has been rewritten from the ground up as a native iOS app.
The biggest news for you, is that configuration and statistics are now FREE!
Previously configuration and statistics required an in-app purchase. So now you can configure the level to your own preferences, or analyze the progress and development of your baby in the statistics screen, all free!
Note: At some point in the future this may return to an in-app purchase, so check out now while you can.
Apart from the unlocking of paid areas, the biggest changes you'll notice visually is the configuration screen buttons are now native iOS controls, and the charting is now more interactive - pinch, zoom and drag the chart to see it more clearly.
WARNING: Unfortunately, statistical data from the previous version of this app can't be migrated. If you're interested in storing any statistical data from the previous version of this app, it might be a good idea to screenshot any charts you may be interested in before updating. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a very original and creative app that's like a must have for parents with babies. The description talks a lot about the uses of this app and I can vouch for them completely. The UI is also great and the functionality is very easy to understand. Very good app to have.
I love the screenshots and icons. This game is really helpful to help develop newborns eye sight and improve their vision. I played it with my niece and she liked it, though she didn't have a long attention span so it only lasted a few minutes
Updated review. Our first son enjoyed Baby Shapes two years ago. Now we have a nine-month-old who also digs this app. He figured out how to tap the shapes! We look forward to the sequel.
