iPad App Review - Feed The Animals

~ Posted on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at 3:47 PM ~

Last year, I have a wonderful opportunity to review the "Buzzle" app and this time, Sonia of Walnut Labs contacted me again to review their 2nd app which is an educational app called "Feed The Animals". Anyway, my review as below...

Description from the product page:

"Wouldn’t it be fun to feed a banana to a monkey or an acorn to a squirrel? Did you know that a hippopotamus is a herbivore animal? Think carefully to select an animal’s favorite food and feed it to the animal and make them happy!! They will merrily chomp away the food making a clatter of funny sounds and cute faces! You will even be awarded stickers for correctly feeding them. Watch your child squeal with joy and hear their uncontrollable giggles as they feed one animal after the other.

Feed The Animals aims to educate your child on the eating habits of different animals. They will be able to differentiate between carnivore and herbivore animals, without even realizing that they are learning. This app will improve their decision making skills and refine their motor skills.

Feed The Animals has been designed keeping a child’s interests and behavior in mind. It has been tested by several kiddos to ensure an effortless game play. The app endeavors to be enjoyable and educational at the same time. There are no complicated menus and options for kids to get confused or lost in. The sticker rewards are bound to encourage your kids to remember the correct food item of their favorite animals.

Feed The Animals attempts to strengthen your child’s cognitive skills, concentration and memory. It’s interactive and animated graphics will keep the kids engaged and bring them back for more!"

* I love the illustrations of this app, it is very cute and pleasing to the eyes.

* This is a fun app where you get to feed animals with the right food and at the same time unlocks stickers for entertainment and decoration in the app!

* I like that there a variety of animals in this app and I personally learned a couple new things on what some animals eat!

* Some of the animals got my boy laughing such as the frog when it eats the fly with its long tongue and the fish with the worms since we have an aquarium at home. 

* The sticker screen is very sensitive, even the slightest touch or movement will prompt us to the next screen which is quite annoying as there is no way or button to go back to the sticker screen until we solved another set of animals and unlocked a new sticker.

Room for Improvement

* This app has so much potential! I'd love it if the objects (such as the food and animals) can be pronounced if we tap on the image. For example if I tap on the fly image, it'll make a buzzing sound with the word 'Fly' being announced.

* I would love for a button to allow us to go to the sticker page at any point of the game. Currently, you can go to the sticker page by pressing the Home button on the app and then look for the '+' button which will you can then choose the Sticker page. I find these steps too cumbersome and might be confusing for my boy as well, so it would be really great if a direct button is placed on every page of the game (probably a button called 'Stickers' or something)
