App description

This App is for young  iPad users and is essentially a digital alphabet book using The Wiggles characters, songs and themes.

Reviewers comments

Many digital alphabet books are problematic for Australian users as the accent can be confusing. This App uses The Wiggles' voices who have Australian accents, which is beneficial for Australian children. The App progresses through each letter of the alphabet presenting the letter then some interactive items. For example L is for lighthouse and the user can move the lighthouse beam around the page to find The Wiggles characters.

There are two ways to access letters, either by reading/swiping through the whole alphabet (in “play” mode), or by accessing each letter directly (in abc mode). User testing demonstrated that some letters were more engaging than others and so the ability to go directly to one letter was helpful.

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.
