There are many flashcard type apps available to help children recognize emotions. Touch and Learn Emotions stands out for multiple reasons. The pictures of real people help show actual facial expressions verses cartoon versions. Also, the various customization aspects help expand the app to best fit each child's needs.

With Touch and Learn, four pictures are displayed and the user is prompted to select the picture that best represents the emotion. Many of the pictures are similar, and it may be difficult to choose the correct face for the emotion. This may be slightly frustrating at times for children, but it also shows the complexity of emotions.

The customization aspects are above and beyond for a free app. Users can create new pictures, new groupings, turn on and off certain concepts, and even add new praises for successful answers. The settings are very straight forward, making customization quick and easy. This app is great as is, but the ability for a caregiver to adjust so many aspects so easily to fit the specific needs of the child using it, makes it invaluable.

If you have a child working to learn the complexity of emotions, this app is a great tool. Emotions are complex, but this app offers a simple and fun way to better understand them.
