Ratings and Reviews

Could use a bit of tweaking


I love the concept of this app but my students have problems with it. They can't follow the star precisely enough so can't guess which letter they were supposed to write. It would be great if there was a preliminary step which required them to write the letter correctly (as in apps like letter school) and then progressed to writing it more independently. Also, it would be nice to have an arrow icon to go to the next page rather than automatically going back to the main page. I do like the basic idea of the app and look forward to improvements.

Makes writing letters fun!

My 4 year old daughter really enjoys this app. It shows you the correct way to write each letter by following a moving star. There are coloring pages that you win for each letter completed. A great incentive to get them excited to practice writing!

Great writing app for kids


The characters, graphics, gameplay and music in this app are all top notch. Not to mention how educational it is... My little ones are going to be writing better than me on the iPhone in no time!
