The Yipy Garden Farm by Alien Toes AB is a simulation app that aims to help children understand processes such as digging, sowing, watering, and harvesting. The app does not require a Wi-Fi connection to work and is purchased from the Apple store in a reasonable price (£1.49). The app is aimed at young children (aged 5 and younger) and is designed for iOS devices.
Interacting with the app is simple, friendly, and flexible. Children can experience a range of activities related to farming such as learn the steps needed for growing carrots, trees, flowers, and grass. They can choose and implement activities in the order they like. These activities are placed in a farm with barns, trees, and food and flower plots. The design of the app is appropriate for the age of children as it is colourful and cartoon- like while navigation is easy and straightforward.
The app could be improved further if some form of evaluation was added to it such a matching or ordering activity to assess children's understanding and learning. It would also be good if children received a form of reward (e.g., stars) for implementing each activity and if activities were structured in a varied level of difficulty to accommodate children with different skills and level of understanding.
Also, the learning potential of the app would be enhanced if the farming terminology such as "watering" was given to children while doing the activity; this could be oral or both oral and written. I would recommend this app to parents yet its use would be enhanced if accompanied by parents who could explain farming processes and question children's understanding.
