(Now with updated video 02/16/12) My First App Vehicles (by appp media) is a colorful and interactive picture application that introduces young kids to a variety of vehicles through 3 amusing and animated game activities. I have looked at a variety of kids’ iPad apps and some really speak to my inner child, and this is one of those apps. The original artwork and animations are great, having a whimsical and pleasing quality that allowed my imagination to kick into overdrive as I became engaged in the 3 activities that this application offers; mind you this iOS Universal game app was designed for toddlers and pre-schoolers. Each activity in this vehicle-themed app introduces children to various types of vehicles from cars, trucks, to even spaceships.
The first activity is a puzzle activity, which can consist of 2 puzzle pieces up to 9, and allows for either rotating piece movement or non-rotating piece movement (the child can choose). The rotating puzzle piece movement focuses on helping kids learn and develop their fine motor skills, as kids will have to use a couple of fingers to rotate the puzzle pieces when putting them into place. Once each puzzle is correctly completed, a fun horn-tooting clown pops up onto the screen confirming the puzzle builder’s success. The second activity is a matching vehicle activity where there are 2 sliders, each with half a vehicle (front or back) that are moved up or down. Once the 2 correct pieces are matched, a groovy eye-popping animation occurs sure to grab the child’s attention and imagination. The third activity is a pinball-type game where the player uses the technology of the accelerometer to help move a pinball into 1 of 3 holes in a vehicle image. Once a pinball drops into a hole, an animation occurs creating interesting movement in each picture; it’s definitely entertaining. Beyond the engaging and colorful vehicle activities, the developers (appp media) did a great job creating a very friendly child-user interface. There are limited buttons (and links) to prevent children from getting lost or from going out of an activity easily; as well as having simple pictures to self-guide around the application. My First Apps Vehicles is an amusing and entertaining book with a lot of good reasons that make this app an easy download. Check out our other iPad video app demos . Crazy Mike
