My Underwear from Thumb Arcade – Cool educational app

Don’t let the title fool you.  This is a Cool app that uses the awkwardness in the use of word get you and your kids attention and start teaching the colors, cause and effect, fine motor and memory skills.

Coloring – It starts off with coloring and allows the kids to color the underwear and there are several underwears to choose from 🙂 .  You can take a picture of your custom underwear (Tip to the developer: may be you can work with a underwear manufacturer to create the underwear from the pics 🙂

Matching – Where kids need to match the underwear to the animal that needs it. This, I think is the most unique about this app. The matching gets complicated as they move forward. This is also the most annoying part of the program as it will ask every time you want to play (please get rid of this; confirm screen).

Memory – Standard memory game.

Action Game (Fine Motor/Visual perception) – Kids need to catch the falling underwears either by swiping or by tilting the device.

Tip: Use the stickers to teach some generalization skills (object Labels)

The Graphics are from Todd Parr and they are awesome and look like cartoon network kind.  Music is also nice.

Overall very good app and well worth the money.

Wish list

  • Our usual request for most apps – Settings for the games so it can be customized. For example, Memory game is currently is set to 4 x3) and it may be difficult for some users. Add multi user functionality
  • Basic Skills – I saw XL, small and I thought they are going to be used to teach sizes. But they didn’t used them that way. I hope they will add some features to teach size, days of the week and some other skills for which there are very little selection available. Most of the apps are teaching pre-academic skills such as colors, numbers, alphabets and shapes.
