Happy Touch – Animals

http://www.happy-touch-apps.com/

The free version is a very basic cartoon farmyard scenes where the animals make sounds when touched. Provided 2 minutes entertainment max for both Babis. For 69p you can unlock more pictures.

Pros – pretty pictures and very little risk of exploring fingers accidentally downloading in-app purchases due to a nifty little double tap requirement, so thumbs up for that.

Cons – limited educational value, and some of the noises are a tad suspect.

 

Grasshopper Apps – Animal sounds

The free version has over 24 animal sounds linked to photographs of the animals, an upgrade will set you back 69p. Tapping on the thumbnail plays the sound and shows you a bigger version of the picture, you have to tap the picture to return to the menu.  Animals are divided into those well known biological kingdom categories of Cat, Cockerel, Rhino, Bird, Squirrel and Snake.

Pros – authentic sounds and good pictures provide some educational value.

Cons – you need pretty good fine motor skills to change categories as the buttons are tiny making it not so child friendly.
