Just launched the Connect the Dots app with over 200 puzzles and the feedback has been great so far! Here's 5 samples sent in via email:
Instant classic at our house...he has loved it, each time he makes a shape he yells out what it is and looks at us like he won the lottery.
Amanda and Jack fought this morning about who was going to play it....probably the only time you should feel good about children fighting! LOL.
Just to let you know, my mother-in-law is a retired teacher and not an avid fan of new technology. However, when I showed her Shape Builder, she thought it was an absolutely wonderful app for preschoolers. Most notably the ability to make them think about how the shape of the puzzle piece fits with corresponding curves, etc. The colors and sounds and encouragement from the narrator all contribute to the child's development. Connect the Dots reinforces the child's creativity and will no doubt be another hit! We are looking forward to seeing what you have in store in March :)
Great little app, many thanks! I can't wait for the iPad to come out, both Connect The Dots and Shape Builder will be excellent for little fingers when played in full screen mode. I like that you've included lots of settings in Connect The Dots so a parent can introduce numbers, lower case or capital letters as required. I can't find a method to return to the settings once play has commenced (other than exiting and restarting the app), but that is probably a good thing as a child could otherwise end up in the settings by mistake while unsupervised. A very nice polished little app, good work!
Seeing as i've purchased and downloaded just about every app you've developed for my daughter, I wouldn't think twice about paying in the $3 to $5 dollar range for any of your apps! My daughter uses my iPhone more than I do. You truly have a talent at this. Keep them coming! Thank you!
