Customer Reviews

Nice but missing major features

As an OT this app is very useful for progress monitoring for individual kids. BUT, a major disappointment is that you can not choose letters out of order. This is a major oversight to be relegated to having a child have to run through random letters that they may have mastered already. Second concern is that there is not a left handed mode because those children form letters such as Ts from the opposite corner as a right handed child. This app would be 5 stars with these features added.

Mom/Blog Writer

I absolutely LOVE this app! It's easy enough for young children to use, and older kids enjoy it, too, because it's so much fun. The story method of teaching children how to contruct the letter is great! It really helps them to remember how to do it even when they aren't using the app. This has defintely helped both of my girls, and I would highly recommend it to parents and teachers!

Great handwriting app!

Handwriting can be hard to grasp for some kids - not to mention boring! This app creatively uses colorful pictures and fun stories to aid in letter formation - which as a speech pathologist - I fully appreciate! My daughter loves to practice her "writing" with this app and I've noticed great carry over when she is using a pencil / paper! This app is a must for kids learning to write!
