Zinc Roe design offers a suite of bright and colorful apps for the youngest user/learners. Tickle Tap Toddler Pack - a best buy for $4.99 - includes (alphabetically of course) Count Caddy, Field Flier, Pattern Painter, Sort Slider, and Sound Shaker. With its welcoming continuity of voice and characters, this age-appropriate playful prologue is deliciously intriguing to those eager to learn. Although we'd love to see more levels of play and have the challenges increase as the child's appetite for learning grows, this fistful of apps offers a charming introduction to learning anytime and anywhere.

Count Caddy allows children to drag objects from one side of the screen to the other as a pleasant voice counts out loud. Users can choose to have the app count by ones, twos, or threes. The app does most of the work - counting a loud and displaying the numerals - but for the newest bean counters, it's as it should be.
