Screen quality

This app is designed for an iphone screen. Screen quality needs updating for the iPad. Fantastic app in all other areas.

Victorian Modern Cursive handwriting is designed to be written on dotted thirds with the body letters sitting on the solid line, tail letters dropping below the solid line, & head letters touching the second dotted line. Many of your numbers and letters do not truly reflect accurate beginning and ending points on dotted thirds. This app does not accurately reflect the lines our Foundation students should be learning to write on. Also... there is no provision that I can see that caters for left handed writers... as some of the starting points and directionality differ from right handed writers. I agree with previous reviewers that writers should be given less margin of error when tracing on the line. I imagine many parents think this is a beginning handwriting tool....Tracing on lines is not. Perhaps channeling activities could be designed as a precursor to tracing on the line within your app. Also...traditionally...when learning to write letters ...they are not taught in order of the alphabet. Body letters should be taught first in order to embed the correct 'tear' shape.
