Baby-Silencer

Not necessarily related to language development, Stella took a break from flash cards to explore the Baby-Silencer app by jolly1312. (Hey jolly, the link to your web site is broken.) This app is designed for younger babies with less mobility than Stella (3-6 months), who like to focus on and track small objects. Although the visuals are great, the app does not include sound. (At one point, Stella actually leaned in to listen for something! That is, until she became more interested in the case than the device.) You can upgrade sound effects by navigating through some strange point system—one that involves installing other apps to earn credits—but it looked painful. I would’ve rather paid the customary $.99 for the upgrade had that been an option. Considering the target audience for this app is a presumably a busy parent with an infant, the scavenger-hunt-upgrade-path seems to miss the mark.

  1. Hi, thanks for reviewing my app. I appreciate your feedback and I’ll fix the issues you mentioned in next revision of app. I am not sure you the sound didn’t work on your iPad! The application itself have several music and sound that can be enabled/disabled from setting. Some other users have also complained about sound issue and I’ll look into it.

    Thanks,

    Jolly1312
