I have been presenting workshops on iPads in Music Education and Technology in Music Education this week at the Wisconsin Center for Music Education (We are actually meeting at Waunakee High School).
One of the participants in our iPad workshop has a son who has created some iPad apps, and I downloaded one of them tonight: The Most Addicting Sheep Game (link). It is only $0.99.
The premise is that you control a sheep that jumps to the beat, either with a single finger tap, two finger tap, or swipe. The farther you go in the app, the harder it gets. The only negative about the app is that it has not been optimized for the longer iPhone 5 models or the new iPod Touch. It does fit on the iPad screen, however.
The connection to music education is light, as there is no direct connection to written rhythm. But you still jump to the beat. I'm having fun playing the game, and it is always fun to use an app written by someone that you know (or their son).
If you are looking for or are just “up to” a fun little game, check out The Most Addicting Sheep Game.
