Ballyland Magic Plus App: VoiceOver Gestures

Just released, this app now includes the split tap gesture!

The Ballyland Magic app has been a favorite app for introducing VoiceOver gestures to young children. This enchanting app sets the stage for physically learning and practicing gestures. Students right and left swipe, double tap and three-finger swipe their way through a series of games as the Ballyland characters prepare for the magic show. The Ballyland Magic Plus app replaces the classic Ballyland Magic App. The Ballyland Magic Plus now includes the key gestures drag and split tap, which encourages students to explore the screen, learn spatial concepts and to build mental maps. I’m super excited that the drag and split tap gestures are highlighted in this app!
