What's New in Version 2.0.1
Fixed bug problem (audio)
Excellent app--fun AND educational
This app lives up to what it promises. It has a simple but beautiful "paper" pad to write on, and it gently encourages you to write correctly by flashing the correct brush stroke in the correct place if you do it wrong (no irritating buzzing for errors). It gives you an example off to the side, and, as a bonus, it speaks each letter, number, or word.
I'm already remembering and recognizing shapes (and I was surprised to find out that the shapes of the words make sense to me--that they have a beautiful logic).
My little four year old grand-daughter did nearly as well as I did in writing, and is much quicker at comprehending, so this app isn't just for adults.
