~ Posted on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 8:37 AM ~

I received an email pitch asking whether I will be interested to review this cute app and upon checking out more info on it, I decided to review it, because, come on, look how cute is the illustrations! It looks simple and pleasing to the eye and yet the color is very catchy and interesting! Anyway, my review as below...

Description from the product page:

"The very first Simply Small book app is here, and it’s completely adorable! Based on a story from the immensely popular, award-winning board book series by Paola Opal, Saffy Looks for Rain will captivate children ages one to four (and their parents too!) with its bright colors, bold graphics, interactive animations, and charming story.

 It's a hot day and there isn't a cloud in the sky. Saffy, however, is determined to find rain. Her search ends when she finds something even better . . . a friend who helps her cool down. If you or your little one can’t get enough of Saffy Looks for Rain, look for the next Simply Small app, Saffy, coming soon!"

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and there are also animations which catches our attention! My 3 years old boy had fun tapping the Ollie the elephant's trunk which then splashes water to Saffy the giraffe.

* The coloring game is pretty simple to use and you can choose to use pencil or paintbrush, pick your favorite colors, erase or redo your coloring.

* I like the navigation option at the top where you can select which page to go to.

Room for Improvement?

* Maybe it's just my weird preferance but I would prefer if the book app ended with the "The End" words shown so that we can know that the story ended... I was actually staring at the last page, swiping my iPad screen a couple of times thinking there are more page to read...

* I'd love it if there are options to save the colorings that we did or email it out.

* I would also prefer if the puzzle pieces are the same size as the square boxes it is supposed to go to. Currently the puzzle pieces is a bit smaller and only became the exact size when you matched it correctly.
