  • A sidebar menu to maximize vertical space and house quick access to additional views.
  • The Up Next playback queue: a dynamic playlist that allows you to queue episodes for sequential playback.

  • Detailed subscription management and customization.
  • Lists, Smart Lists and Bookmarks.
  • An elegant, sophisticated media player.

Learning Patterns PRO – Help Kids Develop Critical Thinking and Pattern Recognition Skills

“Learning Patterns PRO – Help Kids Develop Critical Thinking and Pattern Recognition Skills” is developed by Innovative Mobile Apps. It is normally $2.99 and is free for a limited time. It is compatible with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch and requires iOS 6.1 or later.

“This app is the gold standard if you want to help your little one
learn how to have fun while learning patterns.”

Learning Patterns helps your child develop critical thinking and
mental reasoning skills thus expanding a very important part of
their mind. Plus, even adults will have fun playing with this app
at the more advanced levels. 🙂

Approved by parents, teachers, and kids the world over.

Learning Patterns is an exciting interactive game that helps
you learn how to recognize and complete patterns all with
just the touch of your finger. Pattern recognition and
completion represents an important developmental skill
for kids of all ages.

The interface is so easy to use that even a toddler will
delight in moving their first objects around the page.

The app supports two modes to learning patterns.

In the first mode, you decide the type of objects you want
to use to learn to recognize patterns such as numbers, letters,
images, etc. Once you start, the app will start with the most
basic patterns such as ABABAB and it automatically increases
the difficulty based on the users skills. The difficulty increases
in two ways. First, the patterns get increasingly difficulty.
Second, the missing tile moves from the last place to the
second place and later the last two tiles are missing.

The second mode allows you to zero in on specific patterns
and lets students master that pattern with a huge variety of
different images.

The patterns included in this app are:

ABABAB
AABBAA
ABBABB
AABAAB
AAABBB
ABCABC
ABCDAB
ABCCBA

IF there are other types of patterns you would like us to add
please let us know and we can easily get them added.

In total, the app focuses on 8 unique patterns and includes
3 levels of difficulty for each pattern like this:
ABABA?
A?ABAB
ABAB??

The app also comes with over 25 unique collections of items
to learn patterns. This way you can learn patterns by letters,
numbers, colors, shapes, dots, balloons, hats, fruits, vegetables,
animals, vehicles, etc.

The huge variety of patterns and collections means that there are almost an infinite way of learning patterns which ensures to keep kids excited and engaged vs. getting bored by always staring at the same content.

Not only that, at the end of every session you automatically get a beautiful summary to see exactly how your little one did.

Heroic Support is not just what we do. It’s really what makes us, well, us. It’s that drive to make a difference in your life – no matter how big or small. Really, it’s our way of life because we want you to be our customer for a lifetime
