We began work on iBaby Buttons when we noticed our baby daughter’s fascination with the iPad®. The app evolved through hours of trial and error with our baby as product tester. At first, she was more interested in how to open and close the app and navigate the iPad® herself. It took some practice for her to aim directly at the small icon to cause it to open. She rehearsed this step repeatedly, opening and closing the app, and swiping the screen to find the right icon again. (“Yes, it’s still there…”) We have video of her a year ago, clumsily swatting at the screen with open palms. It has been amazing to watch the dramatic increase in fine motor skills she has experienced over the course of a year. Now she navigates both the iPhone® and iPad® like a pro. The iBaby Buttons app was a great starter application for her because it allowed her to interact with it at her own skill level. Her early interactions involved experimenting with the cause and effect of tapping the screen and pushing buttons to view images and hear sounds. She even experimented with using her feet, and yes, it still worked. Many of her first words were associated with buttons in the app. As a toddler, she is more deliberate with her actions and is able to use a finger swipe motion to change backgrounds on the screen. Creating this app has been a very positive learning experience for us all.
