I have to say that this app is one of the most complete and easily understood educational experiences covering forces, motion and simple machines that I have ever encountered. The app has different learning modes in order to fully communicate each subject.
In the Read and Learn mode, there is simple to understand information on each of the subjects provided. One can read the text, or have it read to them.
Touch and Learn provides high-definition photos, including a brief caption. Within the photo are "hot spots" where you can tap and read additional information.
See and Learn provides high-definition photos with captions, which balances out the information with something that you can "attach it to". This is key in learning. When reading about something if you don't have the "thing" on hand to look at, photos are the next best thing.
The Watch and Learn mode is jammed pack full of interesting informational videos. The app has 40 excellent videos in all!
Additionally there is a Quiz section where you can test your understanding. The questions increase in difficulty as you move through it. Answer the questions correctly on first your try to win coins!
I definitely learned a thing or two while reviewing this app. Plus, I enjoyed every minute of my learning experience. What almost amazes me more is the price of this app! $1.99 for something that spans grades 3-8 of elementary and middle school, with an abundance of very interesting and compelling content.
This app is perfect for schools, home-school environments and just filling in the cracks and reinforcing what one has already learned. My hat is off to Sprout Labs for an excellent product!
Requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPad.
