This app (free version) has some nice graphics and could potentially be a great app for beginners or kids with disabilities. However, I was truly disappointed with only receiving four letters in the free version. I've noticed this in many "lite" versions and find it a waste of time and space for me when your only motive is to have someone purchase your full version. It's the new trick of the trade it seems for many apps. A turn off for me who would normally pay for an upgraded version but not like this. I'd rather search the App Store further for another app before falling for a bait type product.

It makes me wonder how much more would actually be in the paid app...

Don't mind the bad reviews.


Yes you only get 4 letters. But what is the lite version for? It's to give the parent a taste before you spend $1 on the full version. I loaded the lite and it was good enough to upgrade to full version. If you are really going to 1 star this app because its limited, then you need to stop buying iPads for your toddler. Seriously, people spend so much money on their kids at toys r us, but $1 for an app is outrageous ... If this pertains to you, stop breeding.

My two year old's favorite app!


This keeps my very energetic two year old happily learning for long blocks of time.
