I was visiting my family last week in Ohio and downloaded Allah Made the World, created by Suzanne Muir, on my generous mother’s iPhone 4. It would not download on my iPhone 3GS because I had to update my software and that seemed like a rather arduous task at the time.
I sat in a corner browsing the storybook application with its fun tunes and my family members looked at me oddly while I was smiling and turning the vibrant animated page. I gave it to mother to try and she thought it was awesome! So we both sat there playing around with it (yes, I am a graduate student).
It was a fun and cute story and was even more interesting as I put myself in the shoes of a 5 year old child.
What is great also is that it can be read by all children regardless of their religion, culture and race because of its simplicity and diversity.
It is easy to navigate and I am sure kids will not have problems turning the pages with the movement of their finger on the screen. It is colorful, engaging and educational all at the same time.
The downfall was I had hope there were more pages to read!
I would have also wished the font would be slightly bigger especially for the younger kids, but iPhones in general are small.
This would be wonderful on an iPad because of the larger screen. The application can bought on iTunes for $1.99. Must have for kids age 1-6!
