What I Like About This Application:

  • There are so many different, more complex words within each basic emotion category. There are also multiple basic categories to choose from!
  • The application includes images for each emotion which allows students to visualize the various degrees of emotions.
  • The fact that the application gives definitions for each emotion is perfect for readers!
What I Would Like to See in Future Updates:

  • It would be great to hear the emotion word when the image is pressed for students who have difficulty reading/reading emotions.
  • There were a couple words/images that I felt belonged in a different category or did not quite fit in a given category.
