Am always skeptical when it comes to kids apps and try to limit my kids’ screen time but this one blew us all away. Once the surprise and awe wore off of a virtual scene appearing in our living room, my eight year old began to follow the reading prompts which actually move you through the narrative. Exploring this pop up dynamic world is an amazing motivator to read in complete sentences instead of words or fragments. It was like a moving playground in our space where we could all explore. My son was standing, walking and even jumping (along with reading) while using this app unlike some other games where he is in some sedentary trance. Highly recommend to parents who may prefer to keep their kids engaged with their actual environment and reading instead of engrossed in a screen fantasy.
The concept behind this app seems simple, but the implementation is *perfectly* done, and extremely compelling: Instead of simply reading a story, you are an active participant in it - using Augmented Reality to place the characters and interactions all around you, via your device’s camera. This approach is not only more engaging than other storytelling methods, but results in it also being more immersive ... and impactful. My son loves seeing the stories unfold in the real world around him, and I love that he must interact with the other characters by voice (not just by tapping the screen). As such, Wonderscope is helping with his confidence in speaking, helping him practice conversational skills, etc. All while he’s having fun using the iPhone as a “magical portal” into the stories. The quality of the animation, music, and voice acting is phenomenal - and helps put this app in a class far above other similar storytelling apps. I am so thankful for finding this app, and can’t wait for other stories to be released. Kudos to the developer for such a great product!!
I got this app for my 6 year old who is struggling to find things he wants to read. He loved this app!! The AR makes it so interactive and fun. He was so excited about it that he has finished all of the stories in one day and we are now waiting for more to come out. My only complaint would be that you have to pay $5 for each story. I wish you could just pay once and have all of them included. However, I have now paid for all of them because he loves it. I guess it’s worth it to see him excited to read. Maybe. I still wish it weren’t so much for each story.
I really like the concept of this app. I hope the developers get picked up by some major funding. I am thankful it is not free, as my kids don’t need any more advertising in their lives. However, I am not sure the price point is correct yet. If the stories were a bit longer, or the interactivity was more on point, this app would be a 5 star homerun. Right now it’s a great experience and sweet use of the AR concept. I think having the story move or change location would be a great addition. Also, keep working at that voice recognition, it still makes you repeat yourself several times.
Beautiful Idea. It was creative, poorly interactive and has potential to improve reading skills. It would be a 5 star app if it wasn’t so costly and the voice recognition was better. It was frustrating for my daughter to have to repeat her words over and over and sometimes it skipped the words altogether! It was frustrating!! I purchased 1 story and it gave me credit for an entirely different story and for 5$ you only get one story. I would even understand paying that much if it was a choose your own adventure and the story could be manipulated different ways. I feel cheated and it’s sad because it’s a lovely product.
