iPad App Review - We are the Children

~ Posted on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 12:01 AM ~

I received an email from Kim asking whether I would like to review this app. Although the app is targeted for age 5 - 13, I don’t think that should be a restriction as my readers and followers may be interested in the app. Anyway, my review as below...

Description from the product page:

"7 kids from America, China, Finland, France, Japan, South Africa and South Korea tell you what their Christmas days are like. Kids will easily learn about different cultures while listening to the stories. Finding and touching the interactive elements page by page gives more fun. With beautiful and vivid graphics and cultural scenes from 7 countries, WATC also provides wonderful traveling experience.

The contents are well-qualified by artists and educators, and local consultants. The team has backgrounds in child development and children’s literature, and has got the know-how on emotional interactive function on apps. If you’d like to try something more than a good storybook for your little loved one, here is the educational, artful solution.

It also is a good Christmas treat for kids- celebrate the holiday with fun Christmas tree-making game, carols to sing along and record your own. Contents can be read either in English or Korean. "

What's good?

* You get to learn how children from other countries celebrate Christmas.

* I like the illustrations too!

* Ben likes the game that comes with this app where he gets to decorate the Christmas tree.

* I also enjoyed the song but am not able to use the recording function (I have iPad first generation)

Room for Improvement?

* Sometimes the items we try to drag to decorate on the Christmas tree are not sensitive enough and requires few attempts to hold the items.
