Best app I have seen for learning cursive!

My son is now learning cursive, we have tried all the different free apps out there. This app is worth every dime! The best thing about this app is that it tells the child what letter they are practicing and also demonstrates how to write it. Most of the time with the free apps my son was not sure what letter he was practicing because it only had pointers to how to write the letter and wouldn't state what he letter was and didn't show how to draw it real time. The app is beautifully illustrated and fun for my son. Thank you so much for this app. Parents look no further, this app is the all in one place to help your child practice cursive. Being able to add your own cursive words and to record it with your voice is awesome! It even has a print option for your custom lists with the dot to dot lines to let your child practice on paper. Absolute A+!

No customizable PDFs

I wrote to the developer before my purchase asking specifically about the ability to create custom worksheets. Quoting from my email: “Can I create custom cursive worksheets with your cursive writing wizard app? There are lots of websites online for creating custom handwriting worksheets, but none of the websites have cursive letters that are connected to one another. My son has dysgraphia and would benefit from tracing lots of cursive words, sentences, and paragraphs on paper.”

I thought it was clear that I wanted to be able to type out custom worksheets (sentences and paragraphs) using this app.

The reply I received was this: “Yes, you can create and print worksheets. There is a special section to create worksheets.”

So I proceeded to purchase assuming that my inquiry had been understood and that “yes” meant “yes” as I defined it in my email. Turns out the worksheets are ready-made with only a list of about 30 three letter words. The only thing that can be customized is the size and color of the font and things of that nature. I feel misled and would never have purchased this app if the developer had made it clear that I could not create custom sentence and paragraph worksheets.

Developer Response ,

Hello Leah, to customize/create your words lists with your own words there is a « New List » button when you choose a word list. The built-in lists are just small examples. Please contact us at if you need more help.

Get this cursive app

If you want your child to stay engaged this is the app you want. She loves the stickers she gets to control after she practices the letters. She has been using this app for a while and she finds herself picking this app over other games. It's the stickers! Genius for developing such an engaging app! Thanks
