FREE App Today: PictoFun!

Thanks to Moms with Apps for today's specials, including the free and totally language-based app, PictoFun!

PictoFun is a fun app featuring two games, Pictojibe, in which you match objects by association, and Pictomatch, a memory game.  Pictojibe is the perfect context for teaching the descriptive and word retrieval strategy of association (with a handy context for causals, "Yes, bacon and pig go together because bacon comes from pigs.").  If I have any constructive criticisms, the presentation of associative sets can be a bit repetitive (but that's OK, 'cause it's therapy), and I could do without the dog-hydrant association.  That said, it's a totally cute app with great animations!
