Helping 3 Year with Alphabet and Early Writing Skills

Overall, this app seems to be helping 3yo learn her ABC’s and seems to promote early writing skills as she learns the shapes of the letters. We’re just doing the alphabet right now, but I’ve looked at the app’s other features (numbers, phonics sounds, and more) and I think she’ll benefit from those too once we get there. The app keeps her preoccupied whenever I have to make her lunch, go to the bathroom, etc.

I love that the app lets you make custom recordings to replace the default ones. She gets so excited when she hears her own voice telling her the names of letters or my voice saying “GREAT JOB!!” whenever she finishes lol.

My only slight frustrations are that it’s not always user friendly. Specifically, I wish there was a “skip” button that could be pressed instead of swiping to skip to a new letter. Sometimes when 3yo is trying to drag her finger to trace, the app interprets it as a swiping motion and switches to a new letter. When that happens, her progress on the previous letter is lost so she has to start over to finish or just move on without getting the satisfaction of completion. It’s possible to toggle swiping off in the settings, but if swiping is disabled there is (so far as I can tell) no way to skip to a new letter. That’s frustrating because sometimes she gets stuck on a tricky letter and will then just give up since there’s no way to continue without finishing the letter.

Love It !!! I am an OT

I work with Special ED preschoolers and this is a great app. It helps my kid’s sensory perception, especially when I use the Ergo Stylus with the built in pencil grip. They love it and then they want to write. Simple app that does a great job helping kids love to learn to draw and write.

Cannot Access Settings, lowercase letters not correct size

The three finger tap control pops up to access their other apps (works) and the settings (does not work). Also, the lowercase letters are not the right size on the lines, the b, f and d for example, do not extend to the top line of the writing staff. I like that the app says the letter out loud so many times but without access to settings I can’t do much to customize and have no way to see if it can adjust for a leftie. Certain letters are written differently by left handed kids and other writing apps we have allow you to switch to leftie mode.
