App Info

Price: $1.99

Overview

Animals 100 – real animals introduces kids to over 100 different animals through informational descriptions, photos, sounds, and quizzes. Kids can scroll through the animals by name, searching for a specific animal, or discover the animals within the natural habitats, tapping on their pictures for more information. For a little more fun, they can take quizzes to test their animal knowledge, put together puzzles featuring animal pictures, and even go through the alphabet, one animal at a time. While kids will find familiar animals, such as alligators and elephants, they’ll also discover less familiar animals, such as the coypu and ibex.

Features include:

  • Over 100 animals
  • Multiple photos of each animal
  • Realistic animal sounds
  • Quizzes and puzzles
  • 6 different languages

Quality

As kids learn about animals, they will do so with HD technology. All of the pictures that accompany the animals show up crisp and clear, allowing kids to get a strong feel of what each animal actually looks like. The same holds true for the animal sounds, which come out clearly and sound exactly like the animals do in the wild. The clear, well-organized design makes it easy for kids, parents, and teachers to quickly discover what they need and a handy tutorial guides those who may need a bit of help. Kids can choose to access the app in one of six different languages. While the animal names and info appear in the selected language, the text on the main screen still appears in English, which may make it difficult for some kids to use.

Education

Designed both for kids and teachers, Animals 100 features pictures, sounds, and information about over 100 animals. This helps kids expand their knowledge of wildlife and start to get a feel for what the animals are really like. Kids will see the animals in their natural habitats, making their natural sounds. Through the tour feature, they’ll also begin to associate animals with other animals who share their habitats. Teachers can pick and choose animals to add to their lesson plans and use the quizzes to test what kids already know about animals. Since each animal’s info contains information such as the class, family, and order, teachers and parents can also have kids search for animals that are part of the same group, helping them to make connections among animals.

Entertainment

Despite the app’s focus on helping kids learn about animals, it still manages to be fun. It’s full of realistic animal sounds, including a section that only focuses on sounds so kids can tap away and hear a satisfying animal sound with each tap. It also incorporates simple animal puzzles for kids to put together and a cute animal alphabet.

Value

Consider Animals 100 to be one of the ultimate animal encyclopedias. The app contains information on over 100 hundred animals, audio of each animal’s sound, and multiple pictures of each animal. After reviewing each animal, kids will learn a wealth of information about the animal kingdom.

Child Friendliness

Parents and teachers will appreciate that discovering animals is the sole focus of the app and kids can’t stray from that activity. As they look for animals, kids will see them identified by both pictures and their names, so early readers can still see pictures and hear sounds from their favorite animals without having to select the name from a list and older kids can move from looking at pictures to actually reading the information about the animals.
