Customer Reviews


My four year old became interested in learning how to write letters at the beginning of the school year, with the expectation at preschool to write his name to sign in each day. He is very resistant to instruction from us on how to form letters, but he loves working with this app. I love how customizable it is, with user-defined word lists, different fonts (currently Zaner-Bloser, D'Nealian, and Handwriting Without Tears), and the ability to finely tweak different aspects of difficulty. I also like how I can see what my son has been doing with it.

I contacted the author to ask whether he would consider adding Getty-Dubay Italic style to the program, and he is considering it for the next revision! He is incredibly responsive and nice. What a great set of apps he's made - I think we have all of the English-language ones now except for the cursive one.

Almost perfect

I love the app! I tell everyone about it!

The only thing that needs changed asap is the "next button" / arrow. It's too close to the settings button and even tho the parental lock on it can keep kids from changing settings, it's still a pain for little fingers that want to do things themselves to get to the next adventure when they keep clicking other things. Move the settings and refresh buttons to the bottom of the screen or center... ;) Thanks for the great app!

Great app

My child has already learned to write her name however starts some letters at the bottom. This app reinforces the correct way to write but is not as frustrating as others. I love the customization allowing you to write in your own words or names! She loves the app too! The animations and the fact that you can record the words are very rewarding to keep her motivated in learning.
