'Alphabet Flash' is a fun app for children up to 5 years old to learn the shapes and sounds of the alphabet.
For those mums and dads in a rush, here's an executive summary of features:
- upper case letters
- lower case letters
- male voice
- female voice
- child voice
- phonic sound
- US and British pronounciations
- sequential letters
- random letter mode
- simple, intuitive interface
Let your child choose from several voice-overs including a special phonics voice. This lets your child learn the sound associated with each letter. 'Alphabet Flash' has pronounciations for US and British alphabets so your child learns the correct sounds for your location.
Start your child off by trying the alphabet in sequence. Once he or she has mastered that, they can try the more challenging 'random' mode.
Large, fun buttons and a simple to use interface make it easy for your child to get started and stay engaged.
