Video Review:

The Lonely Beast ABC

Age Level: Ages 0–5
By Developer: James Kelleher

This app won an Editor's Choice Award by the Children's Technology Review and has received a ton of good reviews from critics at many major app review sites.

This is a flashcard style alphabet app and is very traditional. It's along the lines of the A is for ___ method of teaching the alphabet. However, the pure artistry and interaction on the different panels places this particular app way above the others - at least the others that I have seen.

The drawings, animation and narration are all very fun and entertaining. The main character throughout, the lonely beast, is comical and cute. This app definitely puts a smile on your face from the very first letter.

This app is appropriate for children of all ages and I can see kids going through it time after time. It's a lot of fun to just peruse and play with. For example, at D is for Drums there is a fully playable drum set. It's very creative.

My hats off to the author of the book and the developers of this app.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
