Customer Reviews

Very good

We have a 4 year old who is in a school that really stresses early writing. While she's ahead in many areas, she struggles with her writing and pencil grip. Developmentally, she's fine, but as one of the youngest kids in her class, she's a little behind her class peers in this skill.

We have been working with her, but she would be frustrated by our constant little corrections like "the A needs a diagonal, not a straight line". But this app is great because it does those little corrections automatically. And we gave her a stylus to use, so she's figuring out a proper grip gives her better control.

All in all, we are very happy. Our daughter loves it, as do we. We are going to start letting her 2 year old brother use it on the iPad so the letters are very large while our daughter uses it on the iPhone so the letters are smaller and require better control.

great app, lefty adaptations?

this is a great app. my son has autism and he has a very difficult time imitating people writing or tracing letters, lines, or shapes. however he understood the concept of this app and follows the tracing very well. he gets a big smile on his face when he finishes a shape or word. he's proud of himself and i'm proud of him too :)

only problem: my son is left handed and for the letter "o" he would like to make the stroke clockwise instead of counterclockwise, but the app marks that as "incorrect" and makes him restart tracing the letter. It'd be great if there can be a "left handed option" here but "o" is the only letter that my son consistently would get "wrong." the stroke also affects letters like b, d, p, g but i dont know if theres a preferred way leftys write those letters that might be different from rightys. (im a righty and my son is a very inexperienced lefty so i dont know much about leftys)

Some letters formed improperly

This app is ALMOST what I was looking for to teach my 4 year old how to write letters. However, as an elementary teacher, I am very choosy about correct letter formation. I am very disappointed that this app, like many others, shows incorrect formations when teaching the child to write letters. Some letters are not formed all the way to the top line, such as b and k. Other letters, such as y, are simply formed incorrectly. I was also surprised to find that the 9 was formed like a typed 9, as opposed to a circle with a straight line down. I would highly recommend that the developer of this app research the most commonly used handwriting programs in elementary schools and modify this app to be based on those letter formations. I am sure that there are many teachers/parents who would be happy to pay for an app that teaches children how to write letters correctly.
