Letter Reflex – iPad App Review

Today we're starting a giveaway for very popular app...Letter Reflex! Here is review of the Letter Reflex app.
Finding it difficult to teach your kids letters? Or are you are looking to address letter-reversal issues in your kids? Both can be taken care of by Letter Reflex, the latest iPad app by the developers of Dexteria. 
Letter Reflex – Premise 
Letter Reflex offers two modes: Tilt It and Flip It. 
Tilt It

As the name suggests, Tilt It requires you to tilt the phone in different positions to complete the formation of certain letters. The goal is to tilt the phone to create p, q, b, and d. Audio instructions as well as visual prompts are provided for this fairly simple starter.

The reason why only these four letters are used is explained by the developer in the App Store: According to research, a key reason for letter reversals is not knowing left from right, and as a result, kids get confused when trying to discriminate between a “b” and a “d” or a “p” and a “q”. They’re not quite…

Back in Time – iPad App Review

There’s a dearth of informative apps in the App Store. Or there used to be, because now we have stumbled upon Back in Time by Landka Apps, a fun-filled multimedia information app that is perfect for both kids and adults to spend time on during these trying times.

It is basically an app version of an abridged encyclopedia. You know, the type that clicks with the new generation.

Here’s a quick review of the app. 
Back in Time – App Premise

The basic concept of Back in Time is simple: providing information about everything i.e. everything in life. This can be anything from space to nature to animals.

The upshot of Back in Time – which is also its biggest highlight – is that all the information it narrates never gets overwhelming. It follows a 24-hour cycle and fits all the information, trivia, and videos into that cycle. Do note that billions of years of history are stuffed into these cycles so that readers can understand better. So that you can both understand and retain what you just re…

What Color is Bear's Underwear? – iPad App Review

E-education is experiencing a spurt. There are so many educational apps out there that it’s getting a bit suffocative for parents like us who are unable to find what is best for our kids. Fortunately, CJ Educations has collaborated with Blue Apple Books to digitize a popular book and turn it into an interactive app.

Originally written by Todd H. Doodler, What Color is Bear’s Underwear is an eBook app that aspires to teach toddlers and preschoolers how to identify colors. For starters, it does its job splendidly well.
Premise of the App

The agenda of the game-cum-app is to help a bear dress up. As a player, we are supposed to help him with different colored underwear which he tries out every day.

The app introduces different elements like colors, color words, and days of the week as we move forward. It’s fun to find the right underwear (of a specific color) and give it to the bear who is a coy little creature. The animations of this bear as well as the colorful aesthetics of the app ar…

Comics Head iPad App Review – Creation Tool for Kids

Are your kids fans of Marvel comics? Or are they DC loyalist? Either way, if they are into comics and use the iPad to read comics and you are not okay with them always reading for entertainment, here’s a creation tool.

Introducing Comics Head, an easy-to-use comic strip builder that can also be used to create graphic novels and engaging comic arts. But why would you want to do that?

Simple: kids can be really creative in their childhood and having a system in place that makes it easy to create is just the right tool they need. Enter Comics Head. 
Comics Head – What is It?

Comics Head as an app lets you create stuff. It could be a retelling of your favorite Marvel comic or a new creation altogether. The app gives you a blank canvas to start with, but you can also choose pre-set templates to work on.

We recommend using a template at first because starting from scratch and picking and choosing item-by-item can get tedious. It actually is because there are hundreds and thousands of objects…

The House that Went on Strike – iPad App Review

Targeted at kids and adults alike, The House that Went on Strike is a poem of sorts about a house whose occupants fail to take care of the house. 

The main idea of the app is the revolting nature of the house which goes on a strike against the dwellers. Helping it in its quest are the appliances inside the house such as the refrigerator, stairs, and windows. As you can imagine, it is total chaos for those living in the house.

So, the story goes like this:

My roof was ancient, my chimney was grimy 
My windows were streaked and my walls were all slimy 
My shingles were battered, I had no sense of pride 
And if you think that looks gloomy, take a look inside 

Storyline Specifics

The story may sound vague but the app takes very specific measures as part of its strike.

For example, the entire house goes on a full ‘Clean Revolution’ where different appliances throw their tantrums at those who live inside. With a touch of comedy in it, the story has an oven that shouts “Fire! Fire!”, a dishwasher…
