Fantastic!

I am a speech-language pathologist specializing in teaching children with dyslexia and dysgraphia. All my clients love this app and are highly motivated, from my young elementary kids to middle school kids. It works even better when I added the TacScreen bumpy screen for touch screen products, e.g. iPad, iPod, Kindle, etc. The word list feature is great for helping kids practice their spelling words and for learning new spelling concepts. I just found the worksheets feature and use it to send homework home for extra practice. Thank you for making such an all-purpose app! My only suggestion is adding a sentence list similar to the word list feature so my kids can practice their writing in sentences. Excellent product!

Great learning to write App

I have had this app for about 5 years and it is still working great.
I like that I can customize based on each of my kids different level.
Also, even better with works with the IPad Pro series, which for us is an added bonus as now our kids get the chance to use a pencil while writing.
The fact that they constantly upgrade the app to allow it to be able to be used on various Ipad series says a lot about the company and their customer service.
As a teacher and a home educator, I highly recommend this App for children learning to write or even if they just need practice.

Love it!

My kids 4 & 6 both use this, my youngest to learn her letters and how to form them and my oldest for spelling practice. Love that it allows me to creat my own lists and record the words! Great app, super flexible with lots of settings. We also have the cursive one which is also great. We’ve only had these a couple days but we are very happy so far. Kids enjoy using it and I love that they don’t complain about practicing letters and spelling.
