Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Stop Go! is designed to help kids regulate time spent on specific activities. It’s especially helpful for kids who need support with executive-functioning skills. Parents or kids set the time limit for each colored light and press start. The screen will show the correlating light and a timer in the corner to indicate how much time is left. Stop Go! might be helpful in timing a brain break or time-out, since it has a built-in transition time. It’s difficult to stop the timer once it’s started, which might cause some considerable frustration for kids using it on their own.

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

Stop Go! is available for $0.99 On The Following Devices:

iPod Touch


Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

The only truly interactive feature of the app is that you can set the time limits for each light, so it’s not likely kids will want to use it for its own sake. They might want to keep using it if they get positive results, however.

The Support Level for Stop Go! is about a 2 out of 5.

This app does not provide a tutorial or guide. It is a self-explanatory timer app but should be used with a parent’s help at first.
