iPad App Review: I Learn With Poko

iPad App Review: I Learn With Poko

April 21st, 2011 by

This isn’t so much a review as a mini-review, since the game launches today and I wanted to make a quick mention of it so everyone could check it out.

I Learn With Poko: Seasons And Weather! HD (phew) is a great learning game for your children. Poko will guide them through a series of games and activities designed to teach not just seasons and weather, but also to stimulate their ability to use critical thinking by having them try and guess which activities and clothing options go with different types of weather.

The graphics and sound in the game is fun and engaging, though it seemed like the vocal quality was a little on the low-volume side. After playing the game I sometimes forgot to turn down the volume and would be subsequently woken up by email alerts in the night.

There is no need to know how to read to play the game, which is good on one hand but on the other I would have appreciated the ability to enable some sort of “reading option”. Maybe something that turns off certain audio cues and guides the child towards reading the labels on the buttons? Then again it’s sometimes not good to try and overreach yourself when making an educational children’s app: I’m glad the developers focused on one area and executed well, instead of trying to do everything and falling flat.

Great graphics, fun games, and an easy-to-understand interface make this a fantastic kids’ educational game for the iPad.
