iPad App Review - Pocket Charts! Pro

~ Posted on Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 9:45 PM ~

If you have been following my blog and Facebook page, you would've known that I am currently busy with our learning life (unofficially teaching my 3 years old) and that I teach and explain to him whenever the opportunities arises. So the moment I saw this app which states that it help young learners develop early childhood basic skills, I immediately request for the promo code to redeem and review this app. Anyway, my review as below...

Additionally, these activities have been uniquely designed to lock and play only in the portrait mode in order to simplify game play and eliminate an orientation switch if young learners jostle the iPad while playing."

What's good?

* Who does not love 20 activities in 1 app? The fact that this app came jam packed with 20 games to play and learn at the same thing sounds awesome enough!

* There are currently a few games in this app that I can try on with my 3 years old boy as we have not started with alphabets recognition yet though I am thrilled to be able to review this app as I believe it will help in our learning activities one day!

* I am amazed at how well my boy did in the "Shape Matching" game as I see him slowly and steadily finding and matching the shapes of the objects.

Room for Improvement?

* Nothing that I can think of for now! I will definitely revisit this app in future when my boy is ready with his alphabet skills!
