This is a very simple app that I think might rely a little too much on the pretty hand drawn graphics to sell itself.
Essentially there are two options. One to review the animals and one to pick the correct one out of either 2 or 3 pictures.
I didn’t really like the app when I looked at it first but I left it to the little one to decide.
She really liked it at first. The cheer when you select the right animal of the three (which she did pretty easily to be honest) made her actually giggle. When you choose the correct animal, it zooms in to a picture of it and plays the animal noise. The drawings are lovely but I’m not sure that is something a 3 year old will really appreciate!
However, pretty soon she got bored and started deliberately selecting the wrong animal.
There are a number of things I didn’t like about this app.
- The rabbit makes a guinea pig noise. If they didn’t want an animal that made no noise they should have chosen a different one!
- There is no main menu option within the screens
- It is quite slow to move between the screens
- Maybe the little one is too old for it because it is way too simple and limited in terms of what it does. Unlike other apps, the little one appeared to get bored with it pretty quickly
Overall it’s a really nice looking and simple app that the little one picked up on and enjoyed very quickly. However it is disappointing in terms of depth and therefore long term appeal.
Here’s an App Store link for Little Farmer; it’s priced at $1.99.
