Starting Sounds, from the I Can Do Apps Company, has a nice range of five play levels. The first is a teaching stage that displays one actual photo image of an object along with an audio button that states the name of the item. I really liked this feature since this level is exactly where my little ones need some exposure. Level two kicks it up a notch by asking the user to identify which of the two, vivid picture images starts with the same sound as the written target. Once you show progress at this level, you can proceed to the next, which has you match the starting sound in the target image with one of the two choices below. This time, you are not told the target sound as in the previous level. All you see are picture images. Level four mimics level three in direction, but this time, you must find the match when shown three answer choices. The final level is a matching game that requires play with an adult present.
