Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Acrobots is an interactive tool based on physics concepts. Kids can drag figures, called acrobots, around the screen and watch them interact with other acrobots. Kids also can change settings to observe how various factors such as gravity affect the movement of the acrobots. It’s entertaining for a while, but the shallow experience will leave kids and parents wanting more.

Acrobots is a Education app that is designed for those 10.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of 2 out of 5.

Acrobots is available for $0.99 On The Following Devices:

iPhone
iPod Touch
iPad

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Kids actively participate in changing the ways in which acrobots move across the screen. It’s intriguing for a while, but opportunities for interaction and learning are limited.

The Support Level for Acrobots is about a 2 out of 5.

Play is open-ended, so instructions are not included. Descriptions of the settings and some activity ideas would be extremely useful.

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
