Matching Memory Training Ellies Game icon  Matching – Memory Training app currently free for iPhone/iPad provides an electronic concentration game for young and old. Developed by the trusted folks at Ellie’s Games, this app could be a staple for those working with a variety of age groups. Although it is promoted for toddlers the content is ageless providing a visual memory tasks for toddlers through geriatric populations due to the black silhouette images, letter and number content. The app provides options of 8, 12 and 20 cards, number, letter, tools, insects, animals, cars, sports, planes, cars, music and flowers image categories and 1 and 2 players.







As always, when the apps will return to full price is a mystery.
