How I Use It
The children I used this with did not really understand the interface. As I was using it with them, I didn't really think it was a very in depth learning. It's cute and easy to pick up once you figure out what to click, but the pink star transitions distract and the overall lack of health information in a health related children's app was a bit of a downer. I may have done this with children that were too young for the application.
My Take
I could see it being a good tool for play but not necessarily a good learning tool. There are other apps for mix matching, photo taking, and tool identification out there. I was hoping for a more health oriented and learning tool.
