What you should know:
When you’re talking about animal sounds with a toddler, sometimes it’s easier to relate the sound to actual experiences—your latest trip to the zoo or aquarium, or a pony ride at the fair.
This app lets you do that, by allowing adults to customize every flashcard with a photo and sound recording as well as the wording. Want to add a picture of the family pet? No problem! The app is free for the first 20 custom flashcards, but costs $0.99 to create more. Note that if you’re using the free version, clicking on every locked animal leads directly to a sales screen, so you’ll need to password-protect your account to prevent preschoolers from purchasing.
While the concept of the app itself is excellent, the execution of the game mode is disappointing. It’s not clear how to begin playing any of the games, and game play itself is not intuitive. As a result, the app is limited to the flashcards, which, even when customized, won’t hold little ones’ attention for long.
