Dave Daring | exploration app for kids
Dave Daring is so daring, that he is even brave enough to feed his inflatable crocodile toy, which is lying in the pool, in the garden.
He is even daring enough to be sleeping in the pure dark.
Who is this daring “Dave Daring”, who is the bravest and most daring boy of all times in this story? It is the main character of the kids app category search games.
There are 8 very funny and interesting adventures awaiting Dave Daring in some beautifully illustrated exploration pictures.
Many interactive objects, which will be named via audio response, are hidden in the search pictures, so that the app will also expand kids and toddlers vocabulary.
Thereunder are strange words such as the word periscope (which you’ll find when Dave Daring is in the tub).
We really like the fact that there are always different words used for each picture and search game. The app uses a lot of alternation and one of the modes is the flashlight mode, where the visible area needs to be moved. This will bring in some excitement whilst searching the picture, but it can also be pretty useful if kids have a lack of concentration, because now, the main attention is directed at a certain area.
If you’re also looking for Dave Daring’s cat, you will find it in another game mode, which is based on the cat itself. All of the sudden, the actual search and exploration app changes into a maze game, where kids need to move the curled up cat through the maze on the iPad, iPhone or Android device, to be able to assemble a toy.
Dave Daring kids app rating
We’ve liked Dave Daring straight away, mostly because of the beautiful graphics and detailed search pictures. Even if the levels are quite easy to solve, we still miss a help function i.e. perhaps by darkening the screen slowly from the edge of the screen going in, where only the desired object remains. This way kids or especially toddlers will have a chance to find the object, by moving their attention to the right direction.
Especially as Dave Daring has this flashlight mode, we could also imagine this help functionality in this type of search game. However, a help button would do too, which could flash the desired object. To prevent kids from pressing the button too many times, a timer bar could be integrated, which would need to be filled up first before kids could use it again etc.
The music does also get quite annoying so it would be appreciated, if we were able to switch the music off, also as it is much easier to understand the voice output without the music. We do wish for the app developers to consider our suggestions.
