Make your iPad and stylus your tools to better handwriting.

Handwriting Success is nine ebooks you can write in — a complete handwriting program for children and adults.

Welcome to handwriting in the 21st century. 

Compatibility: iPad Pro 12.9", iPad Pro 11", iPad Air 10.9" or iPad 10.2". Requires iOS 8.0 or later, and the use of Apple Pencil or similar paired stylus with palm-rejection features.

The Getty-Dubay® Handwriting Success App brings the popular Getty-Dubay® handwriting program in eight workbooks to your tablet and stylus. Each ebook is a complete program that you can write in, with pages and pages of instruction and practice. You’ll be able to use the worksheets over and over by digitally erasing your previous sessions — practice to your heart's content.

The Getty-Dubay® Handwriting Success App is simple to use. Turn pages, scroll, navigate and create bookmarks in the same way you would with an ebook.

The fun comes when you touch your stylus to the screen. Now you can select the color, width and opacity of your pen line. Trace and copy the handwriting models, reading the instructions and tips as you go. Erase your work and practice more by selecting the eraser icon, or by erasing the entire page at once.

What’s new in this version: All nine Getty-Dubay® handwriting ebooks are now available via in-app purchase or subscription. Free samples allow you to try before you buy. There’s also an improved drawing engine, new screen rotation for smaller tablets and pinch-zoom.

Teachers and parents, with the Getty-Dubay® Italic Handwriting Series ebooks you can now incorporate technology into your handwriting instruction with seven age-appropriate workbooks (Books A-G) and an Instruction Manual. Books A through G are available on this app as one-year subscriptions.

Adults and professionals, with the WRITE NOW ebook you can learn to use your stylus with confidence and ease to produce notes that you feel good about sharing, and that your colleagues & friends (and your handwriting recognition software) can read.

This is not your grandparent's handwriting. For over 40 years, the authors Barbara Getty and Inga Dubay have been teaching people — from medical professionals to school children — how to have legible, handsome handwriting without the loops and curlicues of conventional looped cursive. Getty-Dubay® Italic is already enjoyed by tens of thousands of adults and students worldwide.

It's real handwriting, for real life.

The App content takes you step-by-step through the printed italic alphabet (lowercase and capitals) and numerals, then onto joining these letters for flowing, legible cursive italic writing. And the books walk the talk: All are handwritten by the authors.

Students can take a screenshot of their work to send to their teacher.

This App replaces the need for the paperback workbook, which means you're saving paper and the resources that would have gone into producing and shipping the product.

While you may experience improved handwriting after just a few sessions, most gains will come from repeated practice over time. As you use this app, try out your new handwriting on whiteboards, or with pen and paper for thank you notes, other correspondence or school work.
