861909 Sound Tap Quiz by Mobile Joy Creations Ltd.   Review and GiveawayI like to collect apps that target the same goal so that my kid is exposed to many examples to help him generalize what he learns.

To learn to recognize common sounds and develop auditory discrimination skills, Sound Tap Quiz does it well by providing not just more categories of sounds but also more sound samples for each item. Included in the app is a total of 6 categories. Each category consists of a sound board with 12 tiles, each corresponding to a sound source. Touch each tile and you can hear up to 5 unique sounds associated to it.  For example, you can hear a horse neighing, squealing, walking or galloping; for a steam ship, the sounds of ship engines, ringing of an engine-room telegraph, lifting the anchor, ship’s siren and a fog horn.  It’s like you have 5 similar apps all combined into one, definitely one of the rare few apps that give you more for the same price.

This app also stands out for its customization options that allow you adapt the app to meet the changing learning goals that you set for your growing child. There are 2 modes of playing – learning or quiz. If you want to introduce the sounds before testing your child, you use the Learning mode. I really appreciate this since most of the other apps are designed for the child to learn through trial and error which can be frustrating for a young child just beginning to be aware of the different sources of sounds. You can also choose to have the names of the sound source displayed on the sound board if you want your child to learn to read and you can do this in 7 languages – English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese and Polish with more to come.  Another option that is available is the choice of background colors.

In the Quiz mode, you can choose 6, 12 or an unlimited number of questions for your child to attempt in each set of quiz. You can further choose to test your child in a single category, a mixture of categories or all the 3 animal categories combined together.  There is no time limit for the quiz.  Your child can tap repeatedly to listen to the different sound samples associated to the answer and he can attempt as many times he needs to find the answer.  At the end of the quiz, you can even look at the report to see how long and how many attempts your child took to get the right answers.  I find this very helpful since we can go back to the sounds library to learn the ones he finds difficult to identify.

The sound and image quality used in Sound Tap Quiz is very good and navigation is easy for the young child.  It is totally child friendly and designed to meet the parents/teachers/therapists’ needs.  If you are looking for an app that allows your child to discover the different common sounds while learning new vocabulary words in 7 languages before being tested, you will want to get Sound Tap Quiz.  In the Quiz mode, it is a great app for practicing listening and discriminating sounds.
