Creative Apps | Make The Face
This is a great app for our kids that love to touch and explore and create! It will challenge their perception as objects may be upside down or sideways. They will sharpen their observational skills as they study the example face as well. In addition, this is a fun way to strengthen their eye hand coordination while they play! There is praise and applause for each completed face.
There is an option on the bottom left of the screen to turn off the sounds. You can change the language to English, German and Greek (the language can be changed through the IPad’s Settings application). Thankfully, there are no ads to worry about in the app while your kids are tapping away.
Another great aspect of the app is the “free play” face. Choose the face with a ? on it. Tap the upper right corner to change the shape of the face. Your pieces are on the bottom. You can hit the right arrow to get more choices as there are so many it takes more room 🙂 Create away to your imagination’s content!

Meet The Developer!
What was the initial inspiration for Make The Face?
The idea for Make the Face! came from a game that my 3 year old son received as a present. The purpose of the game was to create images of objects (e.g. a car, a house etc) through choosing and placing the correct parts (e.g. the roof, door, windows of the house) on a magnetic board. I thought that such an idea would fit perfectly to a game for tablets such as the iPad.
What is your favorite aspect of your app?
The simplicity of its user interface. Kids can play the game without the help of an adult. I have seen several great iPad games for kids that present buttons (e.g. Facebook links, links to other apps of the company etc) that can be easily touched and lead the kid to a confusion. I have experienced that issue many times with my son. User interface design is a major issue in software development, especially when the application addresses children.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Yes! Parents must never forget that kids development has to be based on activities that involve the use of their body. The use of the technology (e.g. TV, computer, iPad) in kids development is complementary and must be done really carefully.
