  1. Create Web Edition Powered by Silverlight

    Look at creating a silverlight version. Initial thoughts

    1. Run full screen mode. Use mouse clicks to display shapes & words?
    2. Cross OS Support (Win/Mac/Linux)
    3. Use ink support with a tablet instead of mouse?
    4. Substitute the text to speech with wma/mp3 files.
    5. Ability to store wma, mp3 files in isolated storage
    6. Use visual state manager to create new community templates.
    7. Upload templates to baby smash site

      Good ideas, but don’t you think that since Silverlight can’t prevent bad keypresses that a toddler could really do some damage?

    • Create baby smash for the iphone and droid

      My little girl loves my iphone and she mimic's my actions when i use it.

        • Make text configureable

          Scott,
          I am german and so my little one is:) I installed a german voice for text to speach (XP) and the letters as well as the numbers are well spoken. But the shapes arent. I found the configuration file and it would be nice if i could change the text for the shapes.
          PS: She loves it anyway!

            • disable function key (fn)?

              Please disable the function (fn) key! My 16 mo old figured out that fn + spacebar changes the resolution, fn + F7 makes the screen go blank, and some magical combination of keystrokes that disable all punctuation keys, which I have yet to figure out. The only solution is to reboot.

                Yes, Unfortunately this isn’t a Windows thing, it’s some application that came with your computer. If it’s not built into Windows I can’t disable it. Can it be turned off before you run BabySmash?

              • ALERT - "Ctrl-Alt-Shift-O"

                Be Aware that the Options command of this program caused my Backspace key to stop functioning after program had been closed. To fix - key series must be repeated.

                • Music on mouse

                  Allow parents to turn off the music connected to the mouse use along with the other sounds. I often play songs for my son on the laptop while letting him play and this "musical interference" is annoying.

                  • Able to have app running in bckgrnd for when u need it fast

                    My daughter sometimes suddenly has an interest in the keyboard and it's tough fumblng around to start it up b4 she closes my browser, shoots 50 emails, and deletes my Windows directory. Maybe put an option to have app launched at startup, so that when u enter a keyboard sequence, it'll start it immediately.

                      • List the latest version on the website

                        The auto-update feature doesn't seem to be registering like it used to, and I'm not sure if it's a program fault, the version hasn't changed, or some other windows fault, but can't check anywhere

                            Add 'A is for..', 'B is for..' option, this would make it more interesting.
                            Also add parent's option choose the object set for the same

                            • The laugh sound that sounds like a horse has to GO. It's SCARY! :-)

                              I know the laughs are slated for removal, but I had to comment on That One Weird Laugh. All the rest are kinda kiddy and cute, but that one freaks me every time. Surely I'm not the only one...? Otherwise, my 2yo son and I love it, and we can't wait for hardware support to be activated!

                                    • Pronounce typed words

                                      Make a new mode: a very simple text-to-speech terminal.

                                      Type a line of text, hit enter, it sends the line to the TTS engine.

                                      Still names the letters as you press them, they still spin into place - but into left-to-right order across the screen.

                                      Instead of wrapping, >MAX_WIDTH letters shift the first off the head of the queue.

                                      After hitting enter, the line shifts up and starts to fade. Perhaps some sounds and screen effects rather than shapes for non-alphanumeric keys.

                                      My nearly-3yo is heavily into typing out words on the keyboard, but not yet old enough for anything…

                                      • Disable CTRL-ALT-arrow keys

                                        My wife lets our six months old play with Babysmash on her computer. She wasn't so pleased when suddenly the whole screen flipped up-side-down...

                                        • Audio Improvement -Wav files should not step on eachother

                                          The wav files that fire should not step on each other - each file should play out its duration - new sounds should be mixed in.
