Reviewers comments

This App was interesting to review, as from an adult’s perspective it was simplistic. To “play” you select a library (eg animals, vehicles, musical instruments or wild life) then touch a cartoon image to hear its sound and see a real photo of that animal. For example if you click on the cartoon dog you see a random photographic image of a dog and hear a bark. From an adult’s perspective interaction is limited.

However, in user testing many young users (aged 2-3) really enjoyed the cause and effect of the App and in some parent-child interactions the images became a prompt for additional language about the image (for example “look at the dog, that looks like Sarah’s dog. Can you remember patting her dog”). Here the App served as a prompt for additional engagement beyond the App. Given the simple interactions with the App it isn’t surprising that older children didn’t appear to find the App as engaging.
