TinyTap Introduces Challenge Mode for Building Games on iPads and Android Tablets

TinyTap is a fantastic free iPad app and Android app for building fun and interactive review games. With the app you can create games based on pictures, diagrams, videos, and icons. The latest update to the app enables you to include a challenge mode in your games.

TinyTap’s challenge mode allows you to add scoreboards to your games so that players can see how they stack-up against each other. The challenge mode also lets you create time limits on your games and create "lives" for players in each of the games that you create.

If the challenge mode doesn’t appeal to you there are plenty of other great aspects to TinyTap games. One of my favorite aspects is the option to build shape puzzles in the app. I demonstrate that process in the video embedded below.

Applications for Education
One of the ways for using TinyTap that I have shared in the past is to create games to help students learn about their classrooms and school building. You could use TinyTap to take pictures of hallways and rooms in your school then turn those pictures into identification games.

At the upper elementary and middle school levels creating TinyTap shape puzzles is a good way for students to practice recognizing important parts of a flowchart, a cell diagram, or a storyboard.
