Abstract: In recent years, it has become evident that the exploitation of mobile devices has much to offer to the learning process. This research paper is looking into the extent to which an educational application on mobile devices could enhance pupils’ performance in identifying colours and shapes in pre-school and first year of primary school. In this scope, we developed a suitable application which is presented together with some remarkable observations that arouse in the research process. Furthermore, we experimented in order to ascertain whether educational benefits exist and determine what these are exactly. The results of our experimentation are clear, particularly positive and encourage further research and utilization of our application.
