Great for two year old
My two year old will request this app by saying "fishy". It certainly has her attention. My only criticism is that the alphabet and numbers allow kids to cycle through very fast without allowing each letter or number to even be seen. I think my toddler is up to about 5 Hz at her tap speed. Might be worth building in a delay to force the viewing of a letter. She really likes the play mode. Shapes, etc have same issue as above. Perhaps more docile kids won't see this as an issue.
Simple but fun for toddler
My 2 year old son really enjoys this app. It doesn’t keep his attention quite as long as some others but my favorite part is he’s begun to sing along with the ABC song! It’s a sweet, easy, app that I don’t have to worry about where he’ll click or tap. Good for toddlers.
Nice app - need to update child track to use proper pronunciation
Very nice app - my two-year old gets absolutely glued to the screen and I appreciate that the counting goes above 10. Would love go be able to set it to go higher than 20 as well.
It has a decent variation of learning modes - it's a little odd that there's no main menu, but it's easy enough to cycle through the modes via a button in the bottom left that it's totally fine. (Though, moving that button to the upper right of the screen instead of lower left would help a lot - my son accidentally switches out of activities all the time because that button sits right where a lot of his tapping happens.)
My biggest concern with the app is that the child voiceover track inadvertently teaches improper pronunciation - of course it's totally cute, but the lisps and w's instead of r's is a big oversight when this is meant to be a learning tool. Fix that and I'll definitely change the rating. I'll also use it a lot more.
I would also prefer the letters not be formed by lined-up fish - they're hard to read (the "W" for example, that just looks like a group of fish) and instant recognizability is what kids learning the alphabet need.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
