ABOUT BUSY SHAPES
Busy Shapes helps children improve their ability to handle simple objects through a series of puzzles, in which they must change simple shapes and place them in proper holes. Along the way, the app responds to each child’s actions with positive guidance and motivation, and never with discouragement. Plus, the app’s digital exploratory playground regularly refreshes with different objects, which keeps children interested and engaged.
INSPIRED BY JEAN PIAGET
Busy Shapes is inspired by the pioneering works of famed Swiss scientist and intelligence expert Jean Piaget (1896-1980), who believed that “children are little scientists”, and that a child's thoughts are built through experiences that encourage him or her to engage in the reasoning process.
INNOVATIVE, SCALEABLE PLATFORM
Busy Shapes’ innovative scaleable platform for evolving experimentation lets children take advantage of the time they spend on touch screens -- so they aren’t just having fun, but learning every second of the way.
Busy Shapes features a special “kid-friendly” design that compensates for the fact that when young children hold an iPad or iPhone, they often have a finger touching the screen.
“PASSING” SWIPE CONTROL
Busy Shapes features “passing” swipe control that is essential for young childrens’ quick hands (i.e. even if a child's finger reaches an object after he or she was already touching the screen, the object is still grasped as intended).
POWERFUL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)
Busy Shapes’ powerful AI supports each child’s unique learning journey. For example, the AI tracks the time it takes each child to complete a level, and increases or decreases difficulty accordingly.
To prevent children from exiting the app by pressing the “home” button, Busy Shapes features customizable Guided Access. This feature also disables selected parts of the screen for safety and protection.
Parents can access real-time monitoring and get advice on how to guide their children. They can also track their child’s progress updates via Apple’s Game Center.
Busy Shapes’ seamless interactive game area never blocks or limits children, and lets them freely access shapes. The menu is also neatly hidden away.
Parents and kids will love Busy Shapes’ built-in “shock absorber”, which prevents a child's poorly controlled or disruptive movements from crashing the app.
Sometimes the best learning is a combination of cognitive exercise and physical play. Busy Shapes’ automatic memory saves a child’s place in any particular game, which makes the app an ideal complement to physical play and for shorter games.
MULTIPLE LANGUAGE SUPPORT
The app is now available in: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Indonesian, Malay, Vietnamese, Thai, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese
