great app, lefty adaptations?

this is a great app. my son has autism and he has a very difficult time imitating people writing or tracing letters, lines, or shapes. however he understood the concept of this app and follows the tracing very well. he gets a big smile on his face when he finishes a shape or word. he's proud of himself and i'm proud of him too :)

only problem: my son is left handed and for the letter "o" he would like to make the stroke clockwise instead of counterclockwise, but the app marks that as "incorrect" and makes him restart tracing the letter. It'd be great if there can be a "left handed option" here but "o" is the only letter that my son consistently would get "wrong." the stroke also affects letters like b, d, p, g but i dont know if theres a preferred way leftys write those letters that might be different from rightys. (im a righty and my son is a very inexperienced lefty so i dont know much about leftys)

Very good

We have a 4 year old who is in a school that really stresses early writing. While she's ahead in many areas, she struggles with her writing and pencil grip. Developmentally, she's fine, but as one of the youngest kids in her class, she's a little behind her class peers in this skill.

We have been working with her, but she would be frustrated by our constant little corrections like "the A needs a diagonal, not a straight line". But this app is great because it does those little corrections automatically. And we gave her a stylus to use, so she's figuring out a proper grip gives her better control.

All in all, we are very happy. Our daughter loves it, as do we. We are going to start letting her 2 year old brother use it on the iPad so the letters are very large while our daughter uses it on the iPhone so the letters are smaller and require better control.

Another great alligator app

Really like this one, have a few suggestions. Try brighter colors for the shapes, and after each one is drawn, slowly fill in the shape so the entire shape is visualized. You could also show the name of each shape in lower case, block style letters, like with the spelled words. Change the font on the letters to get away from that little upcurl on the end of so many. Use zaner bloser block style. Include more options for picking things up besides just the truck, pig eating apples, etc., with different backgrounds.

Your apps are the best! With a little tweaking, they could be even better.
