Overview

How could kids not love an app that opens with laughter as bugs scurry around a brick wall to create a graffiti version of the apps logo? This delightful introduction turns into cheerful background music and bright colors as kids see the five different activities they now have the opportunity to play. Bug Art does more than just allow kids to create art with bugs. While fun, animated bugs play a large role in the games and activities, they don’t all involve art. Instead, kids race bugs, guide bugs around a special bug playground, and tilt the device to guide butterflies around a race track. One thing is guaranteed – as kids go throughout the activities, they’ll have a lot of fun.

Features include:

  • Touch and tilt technology
  • 5 different activities
  • Over 20 design tools
  • Create user profiles

Quality

Bright colors, cheerful music, and skittering bugs will delight kids from the moment they open the app. As they play the five different games and activities contained within the app, they’ll also get a feel for its quality. It’s evident in the over 20 different tools and multiple stickers kids can use to create their custom bugs and the realistic bug images which display in HD. It’s also shown in Bug Race, where kids must tap to get their bugs to finish line before the others, and in Butterfly Valley, where kids tilt the screen to move their butterflies around the track.

Entertainment

Kids have a lot of control over the game. Not only can they choose which activity to enjoy, they also can choose which bugs to use to complete those activities, which pictures to color, and which tools to use as they draw and paint. These choices help keep the app entertaining for kids and ensuring that every time they open it, they can enjoy a new experience. Kids who appreciate a more structured activity will enjoy the Butterfly Valley and Bug Race games, while those who enjoy being a bit more creative will appreciate designing and saving new bugs as part of the Bug Designer or being given full creative reign in the Free Paint section.

Value

Not only do kids have access to five different games and activities, they also have access to games that help build their technology skills. For example, in Butterfly Valley, kids build their tilting skills as they help guide the butterfly. Incorporating multiple technology skills into the games helps make Bug Art an even greater value.

Child Friendliness

Kids have free reign in the app, except when it comes to accessing the settings screen. Access to settings is controlled by a parental block, so only parents can enable the camera, limit saved items, and enable profiles. When used by multiple children, parents can set up individual profiles so that kids can keep their own bugs and drawings separate from others.

Interact with fun, animated bugs, while enjoying five different games and activities. Create your own bugs, use touch and tilt technology to race, or just play around on the playground. There are lots of ways to enjoy Bug Art.
