The $2.99 upgrade is what we needed

Excellent app, but the most useful functions (access to all letters, create lists) are not free. We bought the upgrade so we could create lists of our child’s spelling words. This is an effective tool for practicing cursive and spelling concurrently.

You get the first five letters

I really had hopes that this would be a fantastic app for my kiddos. You get the first 5 letters unlocked after that you MUST pay! They give you a multiplication problem to answer. So I’m thinking you must have to answer a math question to unlock the letter. So we answer, then it pops up showing you have to pay. Sad. It’s not good enough for me to want to buy. Think before you download and allow access to your information only to delete soon thereafter.

Like I said extremely limited on what they offer you. I did find another app which is way better allowing you to see YOUR actual placement of your writing. Not something you slide your finger on and it ends up perfect looking. I downloaded a totally free no restrictions app called cursive writing. Much happier.

Side note for the developer..... isn’t the point of being able to review apps so that others can leave their own feelings? Rate how they feel? To help others? You don’t seem very nice with your responses. Twice now. Please don’t feel so attacked and feel you need to attack. This is just how I feel. Everybody has a right to their opinion. Please accept mine for how I feel.

Developer Response ,

Hello, there is a setting to show the actual placement of your writing. Actually, this app offers a lot of settings to suit every child's needs and showing the tracing only on the model or not is one of these. Sorry, we don't offer an ad-supported version. Our policy is to not use ads and user tracking, but we need to make a living like everybody. So we offer free stuff (all shapes, 5 letters, 5 numbers, and 5 words) and if you like the app, we ask for a one-time payment (no subscription) to add your own words, unlock all letters and create worksheets to print

Great find!

This app is perfect for my 8 year old grandson learning cursive. He hated printing and we had a hard time getting him to write at all. This app is so fun he loves learning the letters and seeing all the great animation thank you for putting this together. I did not mind paying for the extras either as it is very much worth the price and not expensive compared if we had to purchase with a book oh and the ability to print out worksheets with our own words is great! Just wish we could repeat the words a few times for practice on the punted copy.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review! If you want to repeat words, you can just add the word several times in the word list. You can contact us at if you need more help.
