Candy Count App
By Camigo Media
Age Recommendation 4+ years.
Candy Count is a simple application that assits in helping your child build vital counting skills. Kids will delight in the theme and quickly find themselves sorting, counting, comparing and arranging.
The free version gives you the jellybean option, along with 5 colours to sort and numbers 1-5 to count. The paid gives you three types of sweets to choose from along with numbers to 12 and 10 colours.
I like the way the app walks the child through. Even as you sort, the app is telling you what colours you are moving around and what numbers they represent, great for colour and number recognition. The all important 1:1 correspondence is put to work as the child touches each sweet ,the number is said and appears on the screen.
This app for me screams preschooler. Got one? Then you won’t be disappointed if you purchase this app. Start by downloading the free version to get a feel, and for some kids, the 1-5 option is more than enough.
