performance and stability improvements
Engaging & Their FAVORITE "Game"
This app was so perfect for my little twin 4 year old cousins. I'm with them almost daily and they've both been struggling with their ABC's. As anyone knows, the concept of a phone/iPad or anything electronic is fascinating to a child. They're constantly wanting to grab my iPad and play "games." This is their favorite game out of any app I've showed them. They motivate each other and almost sort of "cheer" each other on, while sometimes even fighting for it!
As a previous reviewer mentioned, the buttons should probably be moved somewhere else when the kids are trying to trace the letters. It's also a bit strict, but after doing it for a while my cousins have gotten the hang of it.
A side note, for those of you trying this app without a stylus with your child - that won't work at all. In order to get them familiar with writing, you should really be using a longish stylus to mimic that of a pencil. It'll be a smoother transition to paper when the time is right!
ABC Alphabet Phonics Tracing
My 3 year old son has found his first favorite app on our new Tablet. The ABC Alphabet Phonics Tracing app has been keeping him engaged for long periods of time. I love that it is wholesome learning- He is really loving all the activity and characters that help instill the learning further. I am excited to see how well he does after a few times, the tracking feature makes this easy for me to follow. Having the choice of uppercase and lowercase has allowed him to choose what is easier for him at this time. I recommend this to any child that is beginning to explore the alphabet or any child that needs extra enforcement. I will note that there is background music that plays, but even though it is repetitive-it is not overpowering nor is it annoying.
Great for Kids of All Ages
The app allows you to choose uppercase or lowercase letters; perfect for kids just learnin and kids who need a refersher, like my daughter who needs more help with her lowercase letters. The app also provides a walk through for the first time writing the letter and a second time, with the same letter, to give it a shot on your own. And there's so much verbal praise along the way, even when they mess up. I really like that using arrows and dots, children are instructed on the proper way to write any particular letter. Something that is of utmost importance when they're school age. And, finally, it's engaging for kids so they're not just stuck in an app being "forced" to learn something. My daughter loves it.
