The Visual Perception section includes two activities that require the player to match images according to shape and color, and also to match images to complete a square. Quantitative Reasoning involves choosing the correct abacus image to match the digit, and also to match images that show the same number of objects in different layouts. The final section, Associative Thinking, shows the image of an animal and the player must match the food it eats, and also match its home. The full version of the app includes a lot more activities in each of these sections, including advanced activities to really stretch your child's cognitive function.

Brain training apps are very popular at the moment, but brain training apps designed specifically for kids are not as easy to come by as English or math apps, for example. Pair-Up! covers these cognitive skills well, with the main drawback being the lack of progress tracking. Perhaps a future update will include this? In the meantime, educators and homeschoolers will do well to load this on their devices, knowing that their children's brains are getting some exercise without any ads or accidental exitings. Definitely worth downloading.




"Pair-Up is an engaging educational game that will keep your child engaged while developing their cognitive skills, including language, quantitative and reasoning skills development.


With over 50 unique questions (300 in the full version), and high definition gorgeous graphics your child can enjoy hours of gameplay. In addition a lot of the questions are randomly generated so each time the game is played the question will be a bit different and challenging even if it was already solved before.

This is the free version, it was intended as an opportunity for you to check out the game and give a taste of the experience, being FREE this version contains only a small part of the full game content. The game includes 3 main categories, "Visual Perception", "Quantitative Reasoning" and "Associative Thinking" and in each category we've included a basic and advanced set of questions. in this FREE version the advanced sets are out, and the other sets are partial only Your child will be presented with a single image and four possible answers of which only one is correct. Drag the right answer to the empty frame and you'll advance to the next question in the set.
