The latest creation by KidCalc developer Steve Glinberg is coming soon to the App Store! The name of his new application is “123 Color” and based on my initial tests I am very pleased with all that it has to offer. I also believe “123 Color”, once in the App Store, should be featured in iTunes just like Steve’s math application KidCalc. I suggest that you check out the stellar reviews and comments Steve has received for KidCalc in the App Store.
I have tested numerous coloring applications for children and none compare to “123 Color”. Steve’s newest application has the same type of basic coloring features in some of the other popular children’s coloring apps plus much more. His work reaches farther by seamlessly blending in number and letter recognition. The layout and controls are easy to learn, the artwork is adorable, the audio is crisp and clear, and the little touches (number and letter line auto scrolling, musical animations, etc.) that Steve adds to the user experience really makes “123 Color” a must have application for any parent or grandparent of young children.
Since the application is still in the approval process (it was submitted yesterday) I will save my full review for when it is out.
Here is a video I shot tonight of my 3 year old son practicing his numbers and letters with “123 Color”…
The comments so far look excellent:
Here are a few..
“Consistent with Kidcalc in how entertaining and unbelievably engaging it is for my daughters. They won’t put it down and have been laughing and dancing around the house all morning to the music played after they finish a drawing!”
“I have many of your apps and they are all impressive, but this one is the best, no question about it. Kids are just very fortunate to have your apps to learn from. They teach extremely well, and they grab and hold kids’ attention better than any other apps in the app store.”
