More Buffet!

App Name/Publisher: More Buffet!/Maverick Software

Description: Maverick continues their series of interactive plate-building apps with an international twist in More Buffet (Maverick previously released fun food preparation apps such as More Grillin!). This app allows you to choose a country and fill a plate with culturally specific foods. Additional interactive aspects involve “rolling” sushi, constructing burgers and creating a pasta dish. The app initially let us experience American, Mexican, German, English, Italian, Chinese and Japanese cuisine, and a recent update added Indian and Australian food. When your plate is complete, you can “eat” it by tapping it away or email your dish to a friend or parent!

Therapy Use: More Buffet! is a great context for building descriptive, categorical, spatial and sequential language. Additionally, it aligns with school-based curriculum around continents and countries. More Buffet! is a good opportunity to play “waiter and diner” within group settings, with one student “ordering” a plate from another, thus working on specific language and listening skills.

App Benefits/Likes: Visual and hugely fun, with the promise of growth as additional countries are added.

Cautions: Slightly less interactive than previous apps in the series such as More Grillin! (which allows you to actually “cook” and flip the food on the grill).
