These days there are hundreds of apps that ask you to find the hidden object on a touch screen. But for most people older than 20, the original "Hidden Picture" activity was the one that appeared each month in Highlights for Children magazine.
Today, a selection of those same puzzles are on the iPad's multi-touch screen. Instead of coloring the item in, you give it a tap with your fingertip, to see it filled in with color, automatically. The more you find, the more your picture fills in, until the entire scene is complete.
The app comes with 18 illustrations; 9 for organized around the them "Bedtime," and 9 for "Fall Fun." Each contains between 12 to 27 hidden objects which are presented at the top of the screen. with hundreds of hidden objects; a scrollable row of objects in each puzzle can be turned off or on to make the game more challenging. There's also a hint system that puts a circle around an item and custom background music can be turned on and off.
Features include an ongoing scoreboard that rememers which puzzles a child has completed, and a parents menu include additional puzzle packs ($0.99 each) and the ability to switch to Spanish or Chinese. Note that all the purchases are hidden away from children two layers deep and behind a sliding button task.
