Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that iTake Turns only presents one simple concept — taking turns — on one basic screen. That’s it. On one side of the screen, kids see an image of a stick figure with an arrow pointing to it with a caption “My turn,” that lights up and is spoken aloud when tapped. On the other side, kids see two stick figures with an arrow pointing toward one who has a ball in his arms and a caption, “Your turn.” This app is only useful for kids who have real difficulty understanding the concept of taking turns and who need it explained and reinforced in an extremely simple way.

iTake Turns is a Education app that is designed for those 4.  The app has an overall rating of 1 out of 5 and a learning rating of 1 out of 5.

iTake Turns is available for $1.99 On The Following Devices:

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

While iTake Turns was created with educational intent, it appears to have limited learning potential. Kids who are really struggling with the concept of taking turns may be able to better understand how to identify a turn-taking situation through the app’s one example, but iTake Turns needs more development before it can be considered a truly educational tool.

The Support Level for iTake Turns is about a 1 out of 5.
