What I liked This app is well done. I can see that a lot of thought, time, and knowledge has been put into it. I tested this with my daughter who is 6 years old and she absolutely loves it! This app is great for toddlers up to first grade. It covers colors, shapes, pattern recognition, counting, categorizing, and sorting. The animation and graphics are beautiful and vibrant. It's always exciting to see what the next problem is. Parents can set the train sped to slow, normal, or fast.


Improvements I really love Magikid Train the way it is. My daughter did run into a problem when she couldn't figure out what was to come next. She is to follow the pattern, but it gave her 3 different items so it wasn't very clear what the 4th item was supposed to be. She had to do trial and error with the items available. A great addition would be for the kids to see an animation of the train riding through town whenever they finish or win a set. Ability to add items to the town or have interactive items they can play with would be a good reward for the kids. Make it usable by more than one child.


General review Absolutely beautiful and very educational app. I would not hesitate to recommend this to friends. In fact, my 6 year old expert tester told me today "Mommy, this is a fun app! I really like it!" This app makes it fun to learn colors, shapes, pattern recognition, counting, and categorizing.

What I liked > The 9 different categories, great for learning to discriminate, associate, think, etc.
> The great variety in situations, graphics, backgrounds.
> The ability to set a level by accelerating of decelerating the train.
> The idea of using movement to increase the difficulty of the task


Improvements > This app lacks words. Would be great to learn the word associate to each color, shape, etc.
> There is a lot of repetition in the task. Only the background changes most of the time, with no variation in the task
> Would be great to get a general sense of progression in the whole app.


General review This is not a train ! It's a puzzle game with complicated navigation, combining logic and matching game with some fine motorskill. Not that easy to match a category AND anticipate train movement to match correctly on the train.A really great app to work on cognitive skills!!

What I liked I appreciated that there were three speeds to choose from for completing the levels. I feel this allows the app to be used by different aged children. I liked that the graphics used varied throughout the levels. I liked the variety and range of skills covered with this app.


Improvements I wish that after completing a car correctly on the color and shape screens that the names would be stated. I feel this would add to the value of this app. I also wish there was oral positive feedback as the child completes the levels and oral encouragement when the incorrect answer was chosen.


General review As a kindergarten teacher I feel this app would be a great tool to use to work on visual discrimination. The use of "shadows" on the various levels was a great idea. I would recommend this app to other early education teachers as well as suggest it to parents.

What I liked This is a wonderful app. It was engaging for young children and reinforces learning of concepts such as shapes and colors. I love that the app uses a train, which is something that appeals to all young children. I also like that the game gives children over 90 seconds in order to try and find the right match to put on the train. It also includes errorless learning since a child can not put the same match twice or the wrong choice on the train. This was something I really liked about the app!


Improvements My wish list for a future version would include:
- A learning section where children can match the exact color, animal, ect. to the same color or animal. I think this app has a good idea but children need some working on basic identification and matching skills before moving onto more advanced skills like with matching two, three or seven colors that is on a train that then is also on a young child.
- I think the parents section should be locked and only accessed if held down or triple clicked so it is child safe.
- I would like to see the levels expanded from 8 tasks per level to more levels


General review This app has wonderful possibilities but I think with a few minor changes/additions it can become a great educational tool. I like that the musical background is peaceful and does not disturb the children working. Overall, the app is child friendly and filled with an amazing amount of content. There are ten sections with eight parts to each section and a part that says more coming soon... I am looking forward to it!

What I liked I think the concept of this app is cute. The pictures are cute in the app. There is many different categories for the app for children to explore and grow with. I really like how there is a speed setting and different levels in each category. I'm glad to see the app expanding with more coming soon :)


Improvements The settings are hard to understand. I'm not sure what the raindrops with colors, shapes, ect are for as they don't seem to do anything when you press on the arrows above them. There really needs to be some more instruction in this app as I had to explore everything to see what it did. Also wondering if there's a way to turn off the music?


General review This app is cute and has lots of possibility. There is many different categories and levels for children to learn and grow with. The instruction of how this app is missing and that can make things a little confusing to start off with but once you've got it your good :)
