WhoAmI Animals by Technolio Inc.

Quick Review: There are tons of Animal identification/sounds apps but this one added some twist to it to make it more challenging. The game is easy, a close-up view of the animal will be shown followed by a voice saying a characteristic of that animal. The child will then have to choose from one of the animals on the three buttons on the left. If they choose correctly the voice will say the animals name followed by an animal sound. See the video below to see this app in action.
