Analogies are comparisons that point out relationships between two or more different things. For example: cat : kitten as dog : puppy. By providing your child with practice in correctly identifying analogies, you’ll not only help him improve his IQ and placement test scores, but you'll also improve his analytical thinking, problem solving, perception, spatial skills, memory and creativity.
The Analogy app is an easy and inexpensive way to give your child this practice. It's simple to use, convenient and inexpensive.
I was a little disappointed with the number of analogies included on the app as it doesn’t take long before you begin to repeat the patterns. The graphics are not outstanding, either; however, for $ .99, the app does the job. I hope the developer will continue to improve this app because it develops essential skills that can help kids of all ages do better in school.
