Shape Pals [text]

What I liked I liked the brilliant colors, the girl’s voice who tells us if we did it correctly or not. I liked the stickers given as rewards when the children choose the right shape.
It´s easy to play, specially designed for kids between 18 months and 5 years old.
Improvements I think it could be a good idea to add more challenges, i.e. the kid must pick the right color, number, letter, not only shapes.
You can organize the different challenges in levels sorted by difficulty.
Another improvement could be to translate the audio to other languages (I can help you with Spanish translation).
Something you should change in this app is avoid repeat always the same colors in the same shapes.
It could be great add more alternative phrases as “well done”, “you´re doing great”, “try again” between others.
General review It´s a great app, funny and educative.
It´s a good way to learn while playing games! Children between 18 months and 5 years old will love this application.
I hope the developers will add new content to make this application even more entertaining.

Budget Balance, version : 1.2 [text]

What I liked I liked the nice graphics with many colors to choose.
It´s a great feature for the user to add placemarks in the map to his transactions.
This app have so much features to help the users manage his budget.
I like the icon, it´s important for me to choose a new app.


Improvements I would like to see the tutorial translated to many languages.
I think it would be a good idea to offer the user two options to get started. One with all the features offered by the application and in the other, th user begins to build a simple budget withouth complex features, (this is for people who do not usually use this kind of applications).
General review This is a great, great app.
It´s useful. Everyone must have it to manage his budget easily.
But I think the developers must offer a simple way to manage a budget to people who do not usually use applications like that.
Perhaps, maybe a free app to try with less features.

Animal Puzzle for Kids and Toddlers [text]

What I liked I like the simplicity of this game.
I like the graphics and the characters.
For play this game you don´t need to read a tutorial or a help page, and this is great for toddlers or young kids.
This application loads fast, this is really great, nobody like to wait.
Improvements I would like to see these improvements:
The capability of choosing the number of pieces in the puzzle.
The game's difficulty increases as we move from level to level.
The possibility to make puzzles with my own photos or images.
I will think more improvements.
General review This is a great game. I think needs more puzzles, more challenges and many improvements as I wrote above.
It´s an application for toddlers and young kids, but if the developers add more puzzles and more difficulty to the game, this app will be funny to more ages.

Preschool Kitty 1.4 [text]

Rating  
What I liked I liked all the minigames that Preschool Kitty 1.4 have. I liked the graphics. The game is easy to play and easy to understand, this is very important because this application is for kids.
I liked that this application is an educational game for young kids.
Improvements The most important improvement I think it would be a great idea is translate all the dialogues from english to another languages. First of all to spanish, the chinese, french and many others.
I think this is important because the images and the graphics are understandable in all languages​​, so the developers just have to adapt spoken sounds.
It would be a good idea win badgets or medals as we unlock levels.
General review I think that Preschool Kitty is a great application. It will be awesome if the developers translate all the spoken words to another languages, and if time to time they will add more challenges, i.e. one minigame could be just click on the vowels or consonants only, or only on the numbers (if they come mixed with letters)

Visual Routine v2.0.2 [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked What I like about this application is its ease of use. It is very helpful for children with special needs to access an application that displays them in an easy and friendly way their daily routines. A very important feature is that the application has the ability to add pictures and sounds.
Improvements In future versions I'd like to see the addition of alarms add to routines.
These alarms may be sounds that are included in the application, songs stored on your iPod or recordings made by the child or his teacher.
Another idea could be the addition of congratulations each time the child meets routine. It could be an applause, balloons going up to heaven, collectible stickers, etc.
General review I think it's a very good application.
It is very useful to help children with special abilities. It is a way of helping them to develop daily routines that other people are doing this activities without thinking. That children can view activities in pictures of themselves is a great way for them to incorporate into their routines.

CoverMe - Private Texting & Secure Phone Calls with Password Locked Safe Vault to Protect Secret Contacts, Text Messages, Personal Photos & Videos - V1.0.2 [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked This app confused me because I thought that I could send private messages between any of my friends, but to be a private message both of the writers had to have CoverMe. The only thing I like is the feature to make private and hidden, folders and photos.
Improvements It could be a great idea to make private messages between one person who haves this application and the other havent it.
Another improvement is to add personal questions so the user could recover the password if he don't remember it, like the mail app do.
General review I think this app needs more improvements to make it cool and useful. I would not buy this application as it is now.
If the developers will add the ideas I've suggest or others improvements, I believe it will be more attractive to buy it and more useful to the buyers.

What I liked I like the graphics, I like that there are many options in this application, such as games, painting pages and reading the book. I think you can improve this application to make it really better.
I like the features of the painting book, you can choose crayones, pencils, brushes, etc.
Improvements All characters and objects do the same when you click on them. It would be better different effect for each one, for example, touching a cloud, it rains. I've seen books that develop much better pc this feature, such as "living books" produced by Broderbund. Please take a moment to play those interactive books.
Another thing, the app crashes one time, if you want the report of my iPod, please give to me an email address, so I can send it to you.
General review I think this is a good application for kids, but you can make it better.
For example, you can translate the text to many languages, i.e. spanish, chinese, portuguese, french, etc.
Another idea is to develope more books of the same characteres, are you thinking about it?
