iPad

Overall Score: 94/100

version reviewed: 1.2.3

reviewed:


Best for: Teacher & parent tools, Creativity, Early literacy, Language

What it is and what you do with it: create your own 'books' by combining photos (from the camera or library on the device) with text.

Created books can saved to a library, shared by e-mail or printed.

What we liked: the concept. Excellent educational value (early literacy, language, creativity). Good set of editing and formatting tools (e.g. speech bubbles, frames). The option to record your own narration. The child/adult text feature (the child tries to type in the text and the adult can provide the 'correct' version of the text). Extra tips for parents + video tutorial.

What we didn't like: no backup option for the books in the library (if you delete the app you'll loose all your books). The app only works in the portrait mode. We wish there were more customization options (background change etc).
