Please note - this is not a number tracing app.
It is intended for younger children, ideally BEFORE they start learning numbers and letters.
When children start to learn numbers and letters, not only do they have to learn a set of alien shapes but also assign meaning to them. By using this app, young minds get used to seeing the shapes that will be so important to them later in life.
I originally wrote it for my own 18 month old son but is suitable up to the age of 4 or 5. I found it very useful for when he was incorrectly ordering number 11 to 19. A few sessions on the app, together, resolved it quickly.
The game helps them develop co-ordination skills. Sparkles add immediate feedback that worked very well with my own son. You can turn this off if you prefer.
I've added more options. As well as 1-9, 1-20, 10s & 1-99 you can now select individual blocks of numbers.
There are 3 Apps in the series :
* Touch Follow Shapes
* Touch Follow Alphabet
* Touch Follow Numbers
Because it's aimed at younger children, the User Interface is deliberately simple, so they can play with minimal intervention.
Use Settings to change options for playing sounds and/or the sparkle effect
If you like it, please review it.
I do appreciate feedback and consider any suggestions made so please email me.
Some reviews so far for the Touch Follow series - thanks!

Touch Follow Shapes - *****

Sometimes the simplest of ideas become the best, this is a multi- sensory app that brings writing shapes to life. This app makes drawing shapes easy with a glide of the finger and basically once the child keeps moving his/her finger they can't go wrong. Sensory learning is great for young children and special needs children including autism to learn and they should enjoy learning with this app. Brilliant...
Excellent! - *****

I've been looking for exactly something like this! I'm an OT and love great apps. Only wish it started with vertical and horizontal.... And maybe progressed in a developmental sequence... Or let you choose which shapes came up. Still worth it. Downloading the alphabet and numbers now.
Fantastic - *****

The colors and movements keep the kids engaged while they learn their numbers. Great for the classroom!!

Ratings and Reviews
I really like the visual appeal of this app. I haven't tried it with my granddaughter yet but I'm sure she'll like making the colors fill in the numbers. The guitar strum is a little startling for really young children, and it needs variation. I'd like to see a gentler strum and a variety of chords. Overall a really great idea.
Cute, but uses the wrong writing style.
Kids don't learn to write using a type-font. It would be an amazingly adorable app if they used the standard writing style for kids and included arrows to indicate where to start, and which direction to go. The only numbers that were correct were the 2,3 and 5.
This app is pretty much pointless... You don't need to fill in the shape in any order (such as the way you would write it), there is no audio to teach the name of the number, there is no button to control any of it. I am going to delete. There are *MANY* better apps, by far.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
