Oh! (Cinno Star)
Price: $free
Runs on: iPad, iPhone, Android
Ages: 3-up
Teaches: geometry, art, language, spatial relations
Freely mix and match ten colored shapes, to see how they respond to their placement on the screen. A green circle grows into a tree; a rectangle becomes a man who says "hello." If you rotate the screen, the properties change. There are birds, cars and other common items, illustrated with simple pencil drawings.

The minimal illustration style was adapted from the French pop-up book “Oh! mon chapeau” Louis Rigaud and Anouck Boisrobert. Need to know -- the creative process is fun to explore but rather random. Also it is hard to find the menu of shapes (you have to tap near the edge of the screen). Use this app to bring your child close to the mind of an artist.
