Disappointed in your writing on the iPad? The best way to write on the iPad is an enduring longhand cursive, called a running hand. iGlide helps you learn to use and control the gliding motion at the heart of this technique.
Speed and accuracy combined are the foundation of grace in handwriting. iGlide helps you build your foundation in three steps:
Step I helps you condition to use and control a gliding motion to make core loop and line base forms at speed.
Step II helps you refine these forms and learn to make agile transitions between forms.
Step III assists you in learning to form simple letters - capitals "A," "O," and "C" - in sequences gracefully.
iGlide provides a video introduction to the process of developing gliding movement control and video instructions for each step. The app is suitable for both left and right handed writers.
These exercises have been adapted to gain the benefit of being on the iPad, but their ancestors were used for centuries to transform farm hands into writing clerks with the movement precision required to produce phenomenal writing at high speed using merely a feather.
Once you have used iGlide to develop fluid movement control of the hand and forearm, you may go on and apply it to the rest of the letters of the alphabet with the iNib app for the iPad in conjunction with a writing manual, such as Palmer, Behrensmeyer, or Champion.
A great way to learn to write properly.
My handwriting has always been very bad. My parents have absolutely beautiful handwriting. Once I asked my mother how she learned to write so well. She showed me how they taught her in school. She was taught exactly the exercises that this app shows you how to do. I am working through the levels and have high hopes for my handwriting. At least it can't get any worse :)
Did not like,,really would like to have my $$ back,.very disappointed.And it cost this much,.please don't waste your money just saying.,want mine back,.
