Snap Just Colours with your iPhone

When my oldest son first began identifying colours, no outing was complete without him pointing out approximately one thousand things that were brown (brown being his favourite colour!). Harness that colour curiosity with a new app aimed at toddlers.

Just Colors is a simple app consisting of twenty-three colour flashcards accompanied by photographs of everyday objects to match. For example, the colour red includes a picture of a shiny red apple and the colour gold, a sunflower. The app allows kids to use the camera function on their device and create their own custom photographs to match the colour flashcards. So although my son would have focused firmly on all items ‘chocolate brown’, other kids will enjoy the colour treasure hunt, finding something to match each of the flashcards.

The really attractive feature of this app is that it goes beyond the basics. Subtle hues such as violet, mustard and turquoise are included as well as various shades of green – lime green, grass green and olive.

Just Colors is suitable for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and is available in twenty-one languages via iTunes for $1.99.
