Be on the lookout for a new free update to Felt Board app that addresses an issue with scrolling and item selection. Currently, items are dragged from the drawer and dropped onto the playing area. While this gesture was chosen for it’s ease of use for young children, we are aware that often items are accidentally selected as children attempt to scroll through the drawer to make a selection. We first attempted to solve this problem by expanding the rim on the drawer and adding an indicator that shows movement as a person scrolls up and down the edge. User feedback has indicated that this solution is not as intuitive as we would have hoped.
In the new update, rather than dragging and dropping an item, each item must be tapped in order to be selected. Once an item is tapped it is automatically placed into the playing area and ready to use. Now children may scroll up and down on the inside of the drawer without accidentally removing items from the drawer.
Oh, and we added some bananas for the monkeys- by request! As always, we appreciate your feedback and suggestions.
