Press Here, by Hervé Tullet, that's all about using your imagination. Kids pretend that the dots they're pressing, shaking and blowing move around. Of course, the dots actually do move in the app, though the concepts remain simple and imagination-sparking.
Max is mesmerized, despite the fact that there are no purple dots (still his only favorite color). He particularly enjoyed Studio (drawing with dots that bop around); Sabrina is all about Music Box (where you "compose" your own song by pressing various dots). "You can do whatever you want!" she says of the app. "There's so much stuff to do, it's not just one game." Press Here recently got a rave review from Gadgetwise on The New York Times.iPhone and iPod Touch (99 cents) or iPad ($1.00), and it's great for kids young and old—Tap Tap has become my go-to activity during my commute home from work.
