Simplicity is the key to a successful app for children. For the younger ones, even swiping can get a little tricky. Sound Touch relies only on taps, making it super easy for little fingers to navigate.

The app opens right to the activity, without a main menu. It’s broken into 6 categories, which are shown at the bottom of the screen as pictures – animals, wild animals, wild birds, vehicles, musical-instruments and household. Each page has 12 items displayed with bright, cute cartoon items. Tap a picture, and a real life photo of the item pops open, accompanied by the sound it makes. Tap the picture anywhere, and it disappears.

Playing around with the app, you’ll discover something even cooler – each item has not one, but 4-5 real pictures and sounds! Bringing up something new every time you tap is a great way to keep kids’ attention. The photos are great, as is the sound quality of the recordings.

The musical instruments section features famous classical music pieces – your kids can tap on a piano or trumpet and hear 4 different runs. Tapping on the drum shows them a drumset, bongos, marching drums and a timpani. With ships and fire trucks, sheep and monkeys, accordions and harmonicas, it would take a while for little ones to get tired of this game!

    I use this app in speech & language therapy all the time. It is especially useful for encouraging “auditory attention”. So many apps are completely visual – you can watch what happens and not pay attention to any of the sounds or speech. I love to watch little ones scan all over the Sound Touch picture, looking for the movement, before they realize that this is something that you LISTEN to!
