Needs an option to use cursive script for writing

My daughter enjoys this app but she is meant to write her letters in the cursive script. Other phonic games give parents this option to change the writing style to cursive or keep it as just printing. As it only lets her print and shows her cursive letters up as wrong, it is undoing and or confusing all the letter work she's doing at school. Such a shame and something that the app developers could easily sort out.

This a good game for handwriting

Any schools should get this👍🏽And it is good but if you have a stylus use it because using your finger wouldn't work using a pencil

No sound

I downloaded this app for my four-year-old daughter a while ago. It worked well and she loved it. However, over the past few months, the sound hasn't worked. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it a couple of times without success. It is quite frustrating and makes the app a lot less fun. Unsurprisingly, my daughter no longer asks for it. What a shame. What a waste.
