Overall Score: 99/100

version reviewed: 1.09

reviewed:


Best for: Interactive books, Attention & concentration, Early literacy, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Language, Understanding of the world

What it is: an interactive book about various types of trucks (about 16 pages long).

What you do with it: listen to the narration, tap the objects on pages and their name will be displayed and read out.

What we liked: the 'story' (suitable even for very young kids), simple illustrations and animations, good reading options, professional narration, sounds and sound backgrounds.

What we didn't like: no interaction (we wish we could stop/start the trucks...). The 'picture-word' animations can be distracting for younger kids (we would like to see an option to turn them off completely). The use of iOS system menus for some navigation actions. No option to turn the narration off.

Best for: Interactive play, Attention & concentration, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Thinking & problem solving, Understanding of the world

What it is: a set of construction activities with 8 interactive trucks and machines in a virtual sandbox.

What you do with it: touch parts of the vehicle for interaction (starting/stopping the engine, opening doors, turning on/off lights). Perform various tasks with the help of the machines: put toy elephant's head on it's place with a mobile crane, transport a toy bear and duck with a dump truck etc.

What we liked: the idea, overall excellent quality of the app, beautiful, detailed graphics, lots of interaction and 'little touches' (sounds, animations), simple tasks, simple scoring system.

What we didn't like: we were missing any sort of voice clues, the names of vehicles could be read aloud. Links to Facebook and Twitter on the main screen.

Please note that during our review this app was free but even if the producers decide to charge for it will still be worth purchasing!

Overall Score: 87/100

version reviewed: 1.0

Best for: Interactive play, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction

What is it and what do you do with it: interactive play app featuring Fiete (and a couple of his friends).

Build a track using a variety of components (e.g. bumpy or muddy roads, bridges, ramps etc.) then drive your car and collect stars to unlock extra pieces and vehicles.

20 vehicles, 6 'drivers', over 25 building blocks, road pieces and fixtures.

After your track is finished it can be saved (and edited later).

What we liked: the concept. Great variety of building components and special items (e.g. ramps, whoopee cushions etc). Tons of possible combinations (perfect for experimentation with various setups). Great range of fun vehicles (plus a horse!) in the full version. Ease of use. Sound backgrounds and sounds.

What we didn't like: limited educational value.

Best for: Interactive play, Attention & concentration, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Understanding of the world

Overall Score: 86/100

version reviewed: 1.0.3

Best for: Interactive play, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction

What it is/what you do with it: build/customize your monster truck (choose a body, paint, decals,, wheels and accessories) then 'drive' it on one of the 4 tracks and collect money for future upgrades.

What we liked: the concept. Nice graphics and animations. Fun factor. Easy operation. Sounds and sound backgrounds. The rewards/truck upgrade system with coins.

What we didn't like: the educational value could be higher. The construction of the vehicle/parts used have no influence on the driving qualities. We wish there were more truck parts/accessories to choose from.
