TapThePic by Oleg Fedorov is a straight forward app targeted at very young children. The concept of the app is to show pictures of items or people and have the child touch them. When the child touches the picture it zooms and the app makes a sound.

The free version of the app comes with one set of pictures, but you can buy other sets on the in-app store. Both the settings for the app and the in-app store are only visible when you sequentially click on the four corners of the screen. You can also make your own sets. I could imagine making a set with pictures and sounds from other member of the family. Image one where when your child clicks on your picture you tell him/her you love him, and clicks on the dog and the dog barks. Unfortunately all my children are past the age where this app would be entertaining.

Overall a great concept well executed for an age group that doesn’t get that much attention. The free version was recently updated to include more pictures and backgrounds.

I tested the free version as prompted by the publisher. It is available in the Apple App Store. Works offline, and does have an in app store to buy other picture packs but it would be impossible for the targeted age range to accidentally find it.
