How I Use It
I use this app primarily with my three-year-old child in order to develop his storytelling and pre-literacy skills. We use the audio recording function to record our voices as I draw pictures for him on the screen and tell him stories. He loves to listen to these and watch the little videos we make together because he can hear our voices and see the illustrations we drew. He also likes to tell his own stories and draw his own pictures, and then enjoy the video he made himself. This is a creative toy which he can manipulate easily by himself, but he prefers to create stories with me.
My Take
I think this app is fine for simple demonstrations which do not require complicated explanations or information. The screen is small and unless you have a stylus, it is inconvenient to try and write words with your fingertip.
