Article by George Norman

The Ruckus Media-developed iPad app Spot the Dot is the sort of app you could get for your child if you want him to enjoy a properly good and captivating game. It’s also the sort of app you could get for your little on a special occasion like, say, International Children’s Day – which by the way is today, the 1st of June.

The Spot the Dot app has several things going in its favor. First up, the gameplay – it is a simple but captivating concept. You have to, as the app’s name so adequately points, spot the dot. You are presented with a very colorful image and you have to find the pink dot or the red dot, or a dot of another color. Or you have to move a spotlight around a dark screen and find the correct dot, or you have to find the correct dot among shapes that pop and transform into different shapes.

“This eye-popping, interactive app invites toddlers and preschoolers to learn colors as they “spot the dot” in fun, engaging and highly varied interactive playspaces. Tap the screen and simple shapes move to create patterns in bright, clean hues that will captivate as well as educate children,” says the app’s official description.

Apart from the eye-popping graphics, the app has yet another thing going in its favor: a gentle, encouraging voice-over that offers instructions, guidance and praise to the player.

Another thing this app has got gong in its favor is the fact that it has been created by David A. Carter, the author of the best-selling book 'One Red Dot' and the creator of the 'Bugs in a Box' app that sold more than 6.5 million copies.

If you would like to get the Spot the Dot iPad app, you can grab it from the App Store here. The app is available for purchase for $3.99.
