Best finger spelling app! - 5 stars
“This is a great app for receptive skills. I especially like the spell option... helps eliminate the 'fudge factor' and having the different speed options together with the great graphics makes this app well worth getting for anyone trying to improve his or her ability to read finger spelled words.”
- ASL Student Mo
You and your youngster are cuddling in a chair with your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad in your lap. While you sat down for some bonding time and educational fun for your child, you’re learning and enjoying, too. The two of you are becoming well-versed in the basics of American Sign Language (ASL).
My Smart Hands Finger Spelling Game is a unique, fun way to learn, review and test yourself in beginner ASL letters and words. Thanks to the flexible options, it’s an app for the whole family to play with and pick up a new language.
If this is your first exposure to ASL, you may want to familiarize yourself with the alphabet. It’s easy to access from right inside My Smart Hands Finger Spelling Game. The more difficult letters are shown from more than one view to help you accurately make the sign and get really good at it. Practice, memorize then tackle one of the test games to see how you’re doing.
The app lets you pick from two different play modes, so go ahead and use multiple choice or opt for typing your response. Do it whichever way you want.
Decided to play with the list option? Great. Now, you get to select whether the app will display two, three or four possible answers. If the kids are playing, you may want to start with two and gradually add more options as their skills improve.
There’s a QWERTY keyboard included in the application but you can use an ABCDEF layout, to make it easier for young children to make their answer selections from.
By now, you’ve probably got the idea that My Smart Hands Finger Spelling Game is really flexible, offering you lots of personalized settings but there’s even more. In addition to all of the other features mentioned, you also get to play the game using only three, four or five letter words, or a combination of words. You can even set the game’s speed to slow, medium, fast or expert to ensure that the right level of challenge to test but not overwhelm, is being played.

I am so pleased with this app. It is customizable with many options, so you can practice at a comfortable level and then advance as necessary. It is very user-friendly and easy to use. The graphics are pleasing to the eye and make it fun to use. I will be using this app a lot as finger spelling is my weakness right now. Love this app, well worth the purchase!
This app has helped me re-fresh my Fingerspelling skills in half the time it took using books or classes. I like the ability to speed up the demonstration as I improve.
The only typo I noticed out of hundreds of words was PILAR for PILLAR. Pilar is a scientific word but not often seen.
Crashes on Game Start in iOS 9
Completely unusable in iOS 9. The app crashes every time you tap "Go" to start the fingerspelling game, and randomly crashes while browsing the Learn, Help, and Settings screens as well.
I've seen my friends use this app on older iPhones, so I think it's an incompatibility with iOS 9. Don't waste your money on this if you have a newer phone. (I'm getting these crashes on iPhone 6 with iOS 9.0.2, fyi)
