App description

This simple App is for very young children. It simply presents an image of an animal which, when tapped, you hear its name and the animal’s sound.

Reviewers comments

This simple App is designed for the youngest iPad users and connects with children’s natural interest in animals and their sounds. A simple interface (click the arrow for the next animal or tap the animal for its sound) means that very young children can interact with the app. The only concern in user testing was that there was a link to other Apps by the developer (and therefore in app purchasing) that was accessible and frequently tapped by children in user testing.

In App purchasing

Yes: Contains links to other apps by the developer on the home page.

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.
