December 2012 – React-IN is delighted to announce the updated version 1.1 of Beck and Bo. This new version supports iOS 6 devices and, apart from English, it now also includes Swedish text and speech. The app is currently featured in “What’s Hot” (games kids/educational) in several countries, including US, Sweden, Australia and Ireland.
Beck and Bo, which was initially launched on September 2012, has received excellent feedback from parents, educators and reviewers. It’s mostly praised for its appealing graphics, originality and educational value. It has received several 5 star reviews, the latest being from the iMums who quoted: “This is a wonderful app for toddlers and pre-schoolers, and unlike any other I have seen…Highly recommended.” The app was recently added to the KinderTown Educational App Store, a place where parents can find apps with “substantial educational value” for kids 3 to 6 years old. The educators of KinderTown have to say this about Beck and Bo: “A fantastic app for playful discovery that understands how young children learn.” Beck and Bo received a 5 star review from the iMums
Beck and Bo is an original educational app that invites kids to build beautiful, animated scenes by identifying characters, objects and animals and matching them to the environment. Through a balanced combination of free-play and guided puzzle activities, kids practice both their logic and imagination in order to place objects in the scenes and build a story. At the same time they listen to the objects’ names and sounds, engaging in a fun auditory and visual learning experience. After a scene is complete, kids are rewarded by gaining access to the scene’s unique interactive album, where they can browse through the scene’s objects, listen to their names and sounds and see how these words are spelled.
There are 12 different, delightful scenes to explore and interact with, each one featuring a unique environment with relevant activities. The game is packed with enjoyable animations and activities waiting to be explored! The game’s graphics are designed with great attention to detail, rendering a high-quality artistic result. All objects are designed as if created from bits of colorful cut paper, creating an appealing and heartwarming visual experience. Through Beck and Bo’s original game play, kids learn new words, practice reasoning, enhance their spatial recognition, practice cause/effect and develop their fine motor skills. It is also a great tool for pretend play and creative storytelling.
