Price: freeUser Rating:
I Learn With is a series that is released by Tribal Nova to teach young children the fundamentals of Math, English and other subjects. I Learn With Boing: Ocean Adventures! focuses more on vocabulary, language and recognition. While the app is free, be warned that getting the full content requires a 99 cent in-app purchase as of this writing.
Ocean Adventures! follows the same format as others of the same series. It is divided into three types of lessons that teach object recognition and vocabulary. For example, in the first lesson the narrator speaks the name of an object and the child has to find the object to give to the pirate octopus to juggle. In the other two sections (only available with the 99 cent purchase), the child has to place clown fishes in the right place to see them dance and rearranges crabs in order to form a sentence.
The animations are cute and very child-friendly. The instruction is clear and unthreatening. Keeping this app on your iPhone or iPad would greatly assist a young child in getting ahead in his or her language and comprehension skills. I’m pleased to say that it even takes advantage of the new dimensions of the iPhone 5.
You can register the app online to track the progress of different children that use it. If you’re particularly competitive, you can also see how your child stacks up against others his or her age.
Overall, it’s a well done app for a child’s education. 10% of the app revenues are also used for Plan International to support education projects in Africa. Honestly, how can you resist?
Value:For a preschooler, high.
Would I Buy Again:If I had a kid the right age, yes.
Who Is It For:Toddlers and pre-schoolers.
What I Like:Easy to use. Good graphics and animations.
What I Don't Like:Nothing comes to mind.
Final Statement:For a child's tutelage, it's tough to top the I Learn With series.
