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.

So, firstly, I want to clarify, i am a grade 4 playing this. No, im not actually learning anything, i just remembered this from when i was 5 and installed it either way. It’s pretty good, teaching kids how to write and read with small, little hairballs. (i guess thats what imma call them) I dont have much to say, since ya know, grade 4 over here.. but im gonna recommend this to my 6-year-old cousin. (She’s in Poland, where you start school at the age of 7, and she doesn’t practice letters or maths so.. that’s kinda explainatory)

Update: i did uninstall it, but the only reason is my memory. I wasn’t learning either way. But still recommended to 3-5 year olds

Simple fun

Boy likes it. Success. Had issue with the sound but was just the mute button - which doesn’t silence other apps. Weird
