Star Gurus by Colto is an educational app for children aged two to five years. It teaches numbers, number names, and counting as children connect numbered stars in order to create forty different "constellations." Playable in ten languages, the app states the number names as they connect the stars; this feature allows children to make the connection between the letter symbol and its name, as well as its place on the number line. Players practice counting 1-20, odd and even numbers, and counting by tens. The game is simple, intuitive, and easy-to-use for even the youngest of users. There are no in-app purchases and no third-party apps.
