Apps for Memory
These are some fun apps that help target auditory and visual memory skills. They can be used for varying age ranges as well, but I use them mostly with the 3 to 7 year old age range. This is certainly not a comprehensive list by any means but just a sampling of what apps are available if you need to target these skills.
Memory Train by Piikea Street takes children on a train ride with Spacey the elephant. The train rides by different objects and you need to remember different characteristics of those objects. Was the ball green or blue? Did the house of a square or circle door? It offers ten levels and get easier or harder depending on the accuracy of the user. You have the ability to choose up to four profiles to track data and progress along the railroad line.
Kakako 123 is an app that targets both visual memory and auditory memory using numbers. You are shown with up to 10 numbers at a time with the options of visual, auditory, or presentations using both. You then have to input the numbers you saw or heard with the keypad provided.
Attention targets visual memory skills by showing you a picture and then taking away multiple items in the picture. Your job is to figure out what items are missing by tapping the area on the screen where it used to be. You have 10 seconds to remember all the objects. The app comes free with 2 scenes and 10 levels of play.
