Katie’s favorite animal app is SoundTouch. It has a “lite” version, but the paid version is worth it. There’s more than just animals, but the animal pages hold her attention most, though I can see the vehicle page being a favorite of some.
At first glance, I was like “darn cartoon animals, blech” as Katie prefers “real” pictures by far.
But…touch one and it’s a whole ‘nother ballgame!
Each categories has six different pictures that rotate. With recent updates, the word appears on each picture and is pronounced and it makes the sound. These are all adjustable, ie. You can just have the picture and take away the word. I like it though to help with spelling.
Here’s the Big Cat option (lion gets its own category, but then he’s the King, lol.)
And an example of the “truck” option
But, my Irish blood leans toward the harp 🙂 it’s a nice way to introduce kids to some lesser known instruments.
My ONE complaint is this…………
SoundTouch offers multiple apps with a similar format, tomorrow we’ll talk about their video apps.
Overall, another high quality app. For girls with limited or shaky hand use, this is a good app, because anything they hit will result in an engaging photo, sound, and word learning. It has a page of highly common animals….cat, dog, cow, pig etc so there’s a lot of fun, reinforcement.
Katie rating:4 stars
Mom rating: 3.9 stars, I’ve got to take off for dromedary, it annoys me.
