Fun, interactive way to read
In addition to being a fun children's story, Meet Heckerty offers a fun, hands-on alternative to reading. The app provides the option to have the story read to you, or you can read the story on your own. Regardless of which option you choose, the story comes to life through all the interactions (tapping on the words for help pronouncing, tapping on a character or item to set it into action, etc.). An app for all children learning to read to enjoy!
A Fun and Funny Witch
(This is an updated review) I'd previously reviewed "Meet Heckerty" and given it a lower star rating owing to some technical problems and what seemed to be a lack of tech support. I've since been contacted by the developers who very nicely explained the miscommunication and have a fix for my problem (repeated crashes) on the way.
So I'm now happy to give "Meet Heckerty" 4 stars, because the story of a witch whose face turns green is fun, the illustrations and animations are very nice, and the narration (by Heckerty herself) is a treat: the voice of a real storyteller. Note that because the illustrations have fine detail and are somewhat small on the page, "Meet Heckerty" is going to be a more satisfying experience on an iPad than an iPhone-sized screen...though the images are pleasing even at the smaller size. Also, be sure to read the "Hints and Tips" before jumping into the story in order to enjoy various features like hearing individual words pronounced when you tap them.
Enchanting! Fun for little and big kids of all ages.
I bought this app for my kids on the recommendation of a good friend. They're 5 year old twin boys, and were totally enchanted by the story. There are clickable animations on each page, and all of the words are clickable. They click away and make silly combinations with the words, and echoes, and stuff like that.
I'd highly recommend it for kids of any age, and to be honest - I found myself clicking around the app quite a bit myself, and I'm 44!
