What's New in Version 2.1
Adjustments made to help with any audio issues and iOS 8 updates
Slow paced and boring
I wish this app was more of a faster paced game. The students even said "it takes too long". And it does take far too long! This isn't an app malfunction issue, it's the design of the game. This is turn makes for a boring app with boring activities. The students played for a few minutes before asking to play something else. I'm totally bummed because I bought the bundle and I had high hopes! :-/
Who is this for?
For two year-olds, there is letter recognition; for 3-4 year-olds, there is letter tracing and sounds; for 5-6 year olds there is determining the first letter of an object. Basically, the is more like 5 apps in one, most of which won't be age-appropriate for your child.
