Who did the Testing
Aidan age 5 and Sybil age 2 and mum Diane.
What the Testers said
Diane says, “My son, 5 yrs old and my daughter 2 years old both like the app. My daughter prefers the photo story book element whereas my son prefers the movie element. The graphics are clear and the use of animals is effective, perhaps some actual sounds for the animals would be good to include more in depth learning for preschoolers.
Although my daughter enjoyed seeing her little face in the story, I feel the manipulation of photos could be a bit better.
In terms of usability and user friendliness, the app is simple to use and the story telling element is positive for learning.”
Product Rating: Diane gave it 7 out of 10 .
