Animal SnApp: Farm is another great book app from Nosy Crow. Some other apps from them are: Rounds: Parker Penguin, Rounds: Franklin Frog, and Bizzy Bear Builds a House. Designed for kids aged 2 to 5, it is filled with endearing characters and interesting stories.
When kids start the app, they will see a mis-matched animal picture: the top is from one animal, and the bottom is from a different animal. By sliding either the top or the bottom, kids can re-match the two parts. The matched picture unlock the story for that animal. What a creative way to start the stories.
There are 6 farm animals in the app. Each animal has a unique story of his own. Diggity Dog found his lost bone; Gobbly Goat search for a tasty lunch; Cuddly Cow found a place for a nap; … All stories are full of rhyming and are told in an adorable child’s voice.
The artwork is simple and lovely. During the story transition, kids can hear the Old McDonald music. On each page, there are some interactions and sound effects. Each tap on the animal will trigger a short fun dialog. If the kids want to read the book by themselves, they can re-set setting on the home screen to “Read by Myself”. They can also choose how long they want the text to stay on the screen. For kids just started to read, they probably want to choose “Long”, and relatively fluent readers can set it as “Short”.
Animal SnApp: Farm is such a fun app, simple and addictive. I can easily see a toddler re-match the animal pictures after each story, again and again. It is a great app to get toddlers interested in reading.
