Mobile App Monday - TouchMe HokusPokus

No comments:

Teaching your child to use a touch screen or a switch? This app can help. The game itself is very easy and motivating. Pressing an external switch (not included) or the screen will create a picture step by step. Once one part of the picture is displayed, the children get curious. What is it? Which detail has been added now? As soon as the picture is complete, a short animation will be played.
