Teacher Review

This is a wonderful app that has been created with the utmost love and care. The story is about a square amongst his friends who are all circles. When the circles go to play inside a house and enter via the circular door, the little square cannot get in. The square is sad and his friends try to help him!

In this game we do not count sides or learn about geometry in-depth however, we do get a basic idea of make-up of squares and circles. The value of the app lies in the learner reading the story to him/herself and in learning values on friendship, comradeship, participation and problem-solving.  The app works very well to hone-in on the learner’s concentration skills as it has just the right amount of content, displayed in such a way that focuses attention but does not tire.

The way that the story has been conceptualised and presented makes it very easy for children to engage with the story. The illustrations and design work in the app are amazing and highly creative. The music is all original composition and adds to the dramatisation of the story.

This is a very special app and we are not surprised that it has won so many prizes as the team behind it have made something that is one-of-a-kind. Apps like these would encourage children to read more and get really involved in the stories.

We really enjoyed reviewing this app. We hope you save it onto the Cloud so that you can “pass it down” to generations as this app is a classic in the making.
