Ratings and Reviews
😊 "I like it A LOT!!!!" ~my 4yo son
Excellent educational app for preschool-kindergarten aged children. My 4yo is entering K in the fall & LOVES interactive alphabet apps. I asked him to try this one out and he fell in love right away. From the catchy alphabet song (which had him dancing & singing along) to the letter tracing (his favorite part) to the identification of words starting with the given letter (which is top-notch thanks to the inclusion of excellent pictures and unique word choice), he thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of "The Musical ABCs."
Only encountered two issues, and they were fairly negligible when compared to the overall quality of the app. #1: at one point, the letter-tracing instructions froze, but we were able to reset them by tapping the pencil. #2: my son has a habit of letting his wrist drop onto the bottom of the iPad screen when tracing the letters, and he kept accidentally tapping the pencil and eraser buttons. Obviously this problem was solved by telling him to keep his wrist up, lol.
Definitely a five-star app right out of the starting gate! I can't wait to see what future updates may involve, if it's already this good. Definitely worth the $2.99!!
Love the MUSIC Great SONG!!!
