Bugs and Bubbles, an iOS Universal app by Little Bit Studio is part of a collection of award winning collection of apps. This app provides beautiful music, advanced interactivity, 18 games and activities all set in Uncle Bob’s Bubble Factory, stickers to earn, graduated stages within the app, multiple user profiles, “adaptive play”, multi-touch interaction, visual instructions and more. Skills addressed in the app include: shapes, colors, patterns, balance, counting, pinching, sorting, tracking, balance and more!
This app is gorgeous from a viewers perspective and the graphics provide a significant amount of depth. The music is soothing and does not take away from game play. There are always new things to open touch and explore each time we use the app. I love that my son is able to practice a variety of tasks within the app such as colors, counting, letters and sorting while having fun and not even realizing that he is learning. I also really like that the modules are divided into multiple stages which get more difficult as this helps the app appeal to a wider age bracket and can help parents/teachers/therapist tailor the app to the child’s needs. Our favorite games were the patterns where you had to slide the bubbles into an ABAB pattern which teaches early math skills, “which” which requires following directions to select balloons based on specifications like color, size and quantity and color Ninja where we practiced the names of colors as we popped the bubbles. More advanced games include: matching bubbles which requires you to make pairs by popping letter-filled bubbles, shape stack where you can “stack” bubbles to make a tower and pinch garden where flowers grow and sprout bubbles which are pinched and collected. The games in stage three were too difficult for my son, but I think math scales where you sequence numbered boxes on a scale to come up with the same total was interesting to him since we have done a similar exercise in the children’s museum The follow me tracing game uses a foggy window for a writing surface which we practiced with our stylus which was very responsive within the app.
I would like to see instructions integrated within the app. Although the app is incredibly intuitive, there are times that having an instruction or two especially when you are playing the first time would be helpful. It would also be nice to have a place where kids can “test out” of certain skills rather than having to practice them in stages 1 and 2 if they are older and already understand the concepts.
This app appeals to a wide variety of ages from toddler through elementary school and skill levels with skills such as early literacy, early math, fine motor and more. For the price, this app is a great value for all of the content it provides. The graphics and music are top notch and the app is extremely well executed. Great job Little Bit. I can’t wait to see what you bring us next!
