"This app is the gold standard if you want to help your little one
learn how to have fun while learning patterns." Sonja - mom and teacher

Learning Patterns helps your child develop critical thinking and
mental reasoning skills thus expanding a very important part of
their mind. Plus, even adults will have fun playing with this app
at the more advanced levels. :-)

Approved by parents, teachers, and kids the world over.

Learning Patterns is an exciting interactive game that helps
you learn how to recognize and complete patterns all with
just the touch of your finger. Pattern recognition and
completion represents an important developmental skill
for kids of all ages.

The interface is so easy to use that even a toddler will
delight in moving their first objects around the page.

The app supports two modes to learning patterns.

In the first mode, you decide the type of objects you want
to use to learn to recognize patterns such as numbers, letters,
images, etc. Once you start, the app will start with the most
basic patterns such as ABABAB and it automatically increases
the difficulty based on the users skills. The difficulty increases
in two ways. First, the patterns get increasingly difficulty.
Second, the missing tile moves from the last place to the
second place and later the last two tiles are missing.

The second mode allows you to zero in on specific patterns
and lets students master that pattern with a huge variety of
different images.

The patterns included in this app are:


IF there are other types of patterns you would like us to add
please let us know and we can easily get them added.

In total, the app focuses on 8 unique patterns and includes
3 levels of difficulty for each pattern like this:

The app also comes with over 25 unique collections of items
to learn patterns. This way you can learn patterns by letters,
numbers, colors, shapes, dots, balloons, hats, fruits, vegetables,
animals, vehicles, etc.

The huge variety of patterns and collections means that there are
almost an infinite way of learning patterns which ensures to keep
kids excited and engaged vs. getting bored by always staring at
the same content.

Not only that, at the end of every session you automatically get a
beautiful summary to see exactly how your little one did.

Little lovey

I loved being a baker and my sister wanted to be a pastery Chef in the morning and in the afternoon.

Great app, but...

I purchased it because I work with students with visual impairments and it’s great for their visual skills. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that the purchase wouldn’t transfer to a new device (work issued iPads change every couple of years). Very disappointed to have lost my money, and I won’t be spending it again.

I’d happily pay a few more dollars up front to permanently own this app. I’m over this micro-transaction, subscription-based, you-don’t-own-what-you-pay-for economy.

If I could have purchased this app outright, I would have given you five stars for its simplicity and effectiveness.

Must have for educators!

Nicely done Pattern Recognition/Problem Solving game that lends itself for extended play by either using manipulatives or printing out a screen shot and cutting and pasting the work page. The familiar ABABAB and AABBAABB (and 6 other) patterns are there for beginning learners and it progresses to more complex patterns for kids that have achieved some mastery. An IAP will unlock more content, otherwise buttons are secured. I love pattern making apps, as they teach kids about synchronicity and daily rhythms.....Breakfast, Lunch, then Dinner. They are calming and reduce anxiety by giving us routine and predictability. Alligator apps have really been producing great workbook type apps lately for preschoolers to help transition to Pre-K or Kindergarten classroom work, and are committed to responding to feedback. This is a real plus for educators. I would highly recommend this app for parents, teachers and therapists.
