What our experts think

This is a fun and engaging app with relatively simple game play. The symmetry element was a big hit and the children loved exploring what happened when they drew and ‘reflected’ their image in the mirrors. The app was a fun and interactive way for children to develop skills relating to shape and symmetry, supporting their maths skills. After initial parental input, our testers were able to navigate the features without support.
