Teach your youngsters more about football with Kids Learn Football
Football has become a national passion that takes over out weekends from Labor Day through the Super Bowl in early February. Now you can help your kids have a better understanding of the rules and terminology used in America's favorite game with Kids Learn Football, a free universal app.
This app has been constructed as a series of multiple choice quizzes that pose questions about various aspects of the game. The app should be easy for your children to use and progress if they can read or you could go through the questions with them and encourage them as they move up the ladder toward becoming a Champion.
Kids Learn Football has six levels starting with College, moving on to Rookie, then Starter, Veteran, All-Star, MVP and finally Champion. Users go through fifteen questions in each level. They start easy with basic rules and terminology and become more difficult as you progress. The questions deal with basic rules of football, player positions, terminology, the names of plays and pass routes, penalties, and scoring. In addition to taking in knowledge about football, the children will be improving their reading skills, utilizing basic math, and improving their vocabulary. The hope is that the more that your kids know and understand football, the easier and more enjoyable they will find watching and playing the game.
You may find that someone other than your children can benefit from this app. Maybe you can use this app to teach your significant other about the game you love and make those weekend hours you spend on football an acceptable activity rather than a point of contention.
While most of what this app does is credible I do want to take issue with a couple of things that reduce its desirability. First there are about one hundred questions in the series of quizzes and that's it. So once your child completes the quiz it has no value because there are no other questions. The second issue deals with in app purchases. If a user misses four questions in one level of the app, the app shuts down for thirty minutes unless you purchase coins and use them to reset the app.
Since this apps is aimed at kids who are trying to learn the game, I think the developer could have found a better way to make the game profitable. They make a point that there are no ads but to me ads would be better so the kids could keep using the app. Overall, to me, these two issues takes Kids Learn Football out of the Should Download category to just another app you can try if you want.
