App description

This App is a “colour by number” book re-imaged for an iPad (with options to colour by number, letter or colour). Children choose a colouring-in sheet from a range of pages then match the correct number to the colour to touch and colour-in each page. The app allows the user to select a range of languages including English, Spanish, French and German. 

Reviewers comments

As a digital colour by number (or letter or colour) app, with pre-set sheets of images to colour-in, this app restricts the opportunities for creativity. It does however, offer opportunities to practise simple words such as numbers, colours and letters in different languages (English, Spanish, French and German in the version the reviewer tested). When children complete an image there is a short song and simple animation played as a reward. There is also the option to hear both the English word and the word in another language, which could be useful to children learning other languages. In user testing most children played this for a short time only.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
