"This a fantastic app to get your children acquainted with letters, words and writing out the alphabet.
The metaphor of the app of casting spells and actually practising spelling is wonderful to motivate children for playing the app. Our children loved the idea of 'mastering spells' as they progressed through the app.
We really enjoyed this app and think that it is a great addition for four and five year olds who are in the process of learning how to write and read. They will be enchanted by the magic in the story and will feel very motivated to continue playing, learning and casting 'spells'!"

Excellent App, needs a tweak or two

This app is excellent and has really helped my daughter with her writing. I'd tried a bunch of free apps and took a gamble on this one and it paid off, it's by far the best on the apps store. Just a couple of small details could do with a tweak, the ability to sync progress between devices is a must. Having to repeat ground already covered when her iPad died and I had to lend her mine really annoyed my daughter and almost put her off. Also, the voices are a little robotic and are not very emotive.

Excellent App

My son used this at school and it was recommended to us for some extra writing practice. The extra practice has paid off (in only a few sessions) and he loves playing it. In case its not clear (I didn’t read the description), your child is asked to write letters in the sky with a wand to cast spells. So your child learns to write to correctly and is rewarded by producing a spell. The spells are then added to their spell book and they go out and use them in different situations around the castle (Like summoning a cat to scare away a mouse or a yo-yo for a jester that has run out of ideas). It is a brilliant app, definitely one of the best apps we have bought.

Best Letter Writing App

My son loves this game. Unlike many other writing apps (and we have tried many others - including several paid ones) this one really held his attention. He’s learnt how to write the whole alphabet in basically a week and because its a real adventure with interesting little challenges he’s really into it!
