This solar system app has lots of information in an encyclopedic form, with lovely images, plus a few basic games (puzzle, matching game). Nothing reinforces learning, but your reader can certainly gain new knowledge. The images are enough to captivate the non-reader. This app’s educational value is much higher for a confident reader.
