Learning Touch Apps: Bob Books, FirstWords: Deluxe, and a Giveaway!

Reviews by Johnny Boo, age 5

Bob Books #1: Reading Magic
App developer: Learning Touch
Price: $1.99
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

Bob Books is great and it also is stupendous. My favorite part is when the pig digs in the mud. I would recommend this app to people who like Bob Books and to people who don't know how to read. I like Bob Books 100%.

LitLass's note: Johnny Boo has long been a fan of Bob Books. They were passed down to him from his big brother when he first started reading at 3. Two years later, and although he knows all of his first grade sight words, Johnny Boo recently insisted on buying Bob Books: Sight Words--First Grade. He still loves looking through the boxes and reading the books in order. That being said, he also loves Bob Books as an app, and even though he knows all of the words in the first set, he enjoys interacting with this app, especially since each page has four levels. Johnny Boo loves levels. I only wish he'd had this app as a toddler.

FirstWords: Deluxe
App developer: Learning Touch
Price: $.99 on 5/4/11; usually $4.99
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

FirstWords: Deluxe is an app about words. You have to spell words and sound them out. I like when you get to spell out words. My favorite words are the color words. I would recommend this to people who like words. I like this app infinity.

LitLass's note: FirstWords: Deluxe includes 174 words for animals, vehicles, colors, shapes, and at home. Children can play with letter hints turned on (see picture above) or off, as Johnny Boo usually does. Again, this would have been a great app to have a year or two ago while waiting for big brother to get out of martial arts or piano lessons, but Johnny Boo still loves dragging letters to spell out words. Words are as short as three letters or as long as eight.

And now for the giveaway.

To celebrate FirstWord's 1 millionth download, not only is app developer Learning Touch bringing down the price of all FirstWords apps (FirstWords: Deluxe, FirstWords: Animals, FirstWords: Vehicles, and more) to 99 cents for Wednesday, May 4, but they are also giving LitLad the opportunity to give away three promo codes for FirstWords Deluxe!

All you need to do is comment. I'll pick three random winners by the end of the day on May 4.

You can also like Learning Touch on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, or search for the hash tag #FirstWordsParty for more chances to win a FirstWords promo code (a list of all FirstWords apps can be found on the Learning Touch website). Good luck!

Oh, and comment. Now. Before the fourth of May is over.
