A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The interface is easy enough for a preschooler to use.

Violence & Scariness

On the "eyes" card, if you poke the illustrated eyeballs, you hear, "Ouch!"

Sexy Stuff
Language

No bad language at all, but if you touch the image on the "toiliet" flash card, you hear it flush.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Flashcards for iPad raises itself above many other flashcard apps by adding heavier interactivity and including a couple of game modes that do more than just show kids how words are spelled. The developers made a few strange choices, though, like including a flushing toilet and the ability to poke animated animal eyes and hear yelps of pain.

Is it any good?

FLASHCARDS FOR iPAD is one of the better apps of its kind in that it has bright and colorful graphics, a couple of games to allow more genuine interactivity, and a general aura of fun and whimsy. That being said, some of it, like the inclusion of the toilet flush and eye poke are a little off base. And a few of the noises associated with some of the images are perplexing. We might not know what a giraffe sounds like, but we're pretty sure it's not like the screeching whine this flashcard giraffe makes. Still, it's a cute and colorful free app.
