iPad App Review - Dinosaur Puzzle and Play

~ Posted on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 8:02 AM ~

Our 5 years old boy loves dinosaurs and to have the opportunity to review this app is just awesome! I can tell by our kiddos excitement on this app the moment I tapped to start it and upon seeing the main screen, we got scared when the dinosaur (T-rex) roared at us!

* There are 2 games you can play with from this app, puzzles or painting. Under the puzzle section, you can choose the difficulty levels (Easy, Medium & Hard), the harder it is, the more puzzles required to complete the picture.

* I let our 2 kiddos take turn to solve the puzzle pieces and I like that once the puzzle is completed, you can see some animation from the dinosaur and also learn more about them. Our 5 years old boy and 2.5 years old girl take turn to tap on the dinosaurs and see what animation appeared from it. There is a function to mute the narrator voice if you do not want to hear it.

* Under the painting section, there is easy to find navigation buttons, from zooming in and out from the picture, to delete or undo your action, take a snapshot of your painting and the various colors, coloring utensils and options you can choose from.

* My only recommendation for improvement is to separate out the sticker option which is currently located as one of the options in the painting section. The developer can reuse the dinosaur pictures from the puzzles side and allow stickers to be placed in it - that way it is more realistic as currently it looks weird when the stickers are placed in the illustrated painting.

* Overall a fun and yet educational app for the family!
