Touch and Learn – Emotions by Innovative Mobile Apps teaches your child how to associate a facial expression with the matching emotion. You see four pictures on the screen as a voice says an emotion. You simply touch the correct expression. Then four new pictures appear and the voice says another emotion. If you choose the wrong image, it makes a small ding. There is no limit to the number of times you can get it wrong. It doesn’t go to the next question until you get the answer right. This app does emotions such as: celebrating, bored, mad, frustrated, curious, happy, upset, focused, worried, unhappy, and silly. I will say this about this app, sometimes, even for me, it is very hard to choose a correct answer. It is free to download and there are no in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
