The eye catching iTunes store icon of Pollinator HD is what grabbed my attention while perusing the educational games iPad apps. I downloaded this graphically pleasing app and promptly and checked it out on my iPad 2 tablet The start page was lovely, exciting and and eye-catching.

This visual memory iPad app has a voice recorder built-in as part of the design. This clever app enables parents and children to add audible labels to the visual images that appear in the iPad tablet display of this iPad 2 app. My 5 year son enjoyed recording his own voice as much as he did playing the game.
