Ocean Adventures is the latest addition to the iLearn with Boing series by Tribal Nova. Tribal Nova’s iLearn With program is a series of learning game based apps; each game is designed to prepare 3-6 year olds for school. Included in the learning program are apps for math, science, language, and literacy. The iLearn with Boing: Ocean Adventures specifically covers key language skills such as vocabulary, listening comprehension and sentence formation.

Ocean Adventures is a universal app and unlike the others is free to download. The download includes the Octopus game, access to all features for tracking and playing with rewards. One in-app purchase will unlock the full app, which includes two additional games.

The full app contains three learning games, each with three levels of difficulty and all games are timed.

In the first game, The Octopus, kids will assist the octopus in finding the hidden objects. Not just any object can be found. Kids will need to listen carefully to which objects they are being instructed to search for, search for the objects before time runs out to avoid being inked by the octopus.

The Clown Fish has the kids placing the clown fish into the correct location based on the directions given; again, they will need to listen carefully. This game teaches spatial sense and directions, such as left, right and top to name a few.

Multi or single player mode is available in the third game, The Crabs. In this game, kids will form sentences by placing crabs in order and then can watch their story come alive.

As kids progress through the games they are rewarded with gifts. Gifts can be used in the iLearn With – Planet Boing app, a free app to download.

Multiple profiles can be created for parents to track each child’s progress individually. A detailed summary of their progress is available. The app adjusts the levels of difficulty based on the child’s performance and will recommend a personalized learning path.

Transition from one iLearn With app to another is easy. Their design is consistent making them easy to use for parents and children. The upbeat music, bright colors and adorable characters make them entertaining as well as educational.

Some set up is required if you plan to use the tracking features and want your child to be able to play with their gifts in the iLearn With – Planet Boing app. Customize the app and download the free app prior to letting your child play. It might be a good idea to show the child which buttons are for them to use and which ones are for parents. The tracking progress buttons are not protected, nor is the ability for the child to exit Ocean Adventures and go to the Planet app.
