Easy to use
The developers have done a great job with the illustrations and animations in this app. The images are clear and engaging and the added sound effects really help to bring the app to life. Children will have no problem moving through the app as it is very easy to use with simple tap and drag functioning to feed each animal. There is also a brief tutorial that shows children how to use the app which is great.
FeedingTime with Fred & Olive is an app that aims at teaching young children about responsibility. Players must move through the app and feed each of the animals in order to help uncle John on the farm. As they feed each animal they are also learning the various foods that each animal might eat which adds another educational element to the app which is great.
While the full version of this app offers 10 animals to feed with three foods each, there aren’t any additional activities included in the app. Once each animal is fed, they fall asleep and you can’t go back to re-feed the animal unless you restart the app which isn’t ideal. Adding another activity and the option to re-feed each animal without starting over would definitely increase the entertainment value overall.
The free version of this app allows children to feed a handful of animals, and the full version is offered in an in-app purchase for just under two dollars. With only 1 activity for each animal (feeding), it would be nice for the full version to offer another activity for children to enjoy at that price. While it’s not an app that will break the bank, children will likely get more playing time out of the app with another activity or two.
There is no doubt that this app is easy to use and well suited for young children. The user interface allows children to easily feed each animal by dragging and dropping the foods accordingly. The developers have also included a bit of instruction on the main page to help children if they are unsure of how to proceed.
