We have Soundtouch. It's basically 5 pages of cartoon style images,, and when you tap on the image it goes to a photo of the thing, with the appropriate sounds. There are 5 or so photos behind each image.
The pages are domestic animals, wild animals, birds, vehicles, and instruments.
You have to announce the name of the thing though - the app doesn't announce it - it just plays the noise of a duck quacking or whatever.

My DS loves the 'Wheels on the Bus' app at the moment. it is a series of different verses of the wheels on the bus nursery rhyme with animations that you can move and get to do things. Like the wipers on the bus go swish verse you can get the wipers to clear the water off the windscreen.

My 20 month old loves "wheels on the bus" and he actually sings along now, so cute. All the Toca Boca apps are really cool even for me lol. And my son loves Fireman Sam and Thomas the Tank engine so they have some cool apps too. I am hoping they are enough to distract him on our first flight from melb to queensland next week
