Please note - this is not a letter tracing app.
It is intended for younger children, ideally BEFORE they start learning numbers and letters.
When children start to learn numbers and letters, not only do they have to learn a set of alien shapes but also assign meaning to them. By using this app, young minds get used to seeing the shapes that will be so important to them later in life.
I originally wrote it for my own 18 month old son but is suitable up to the age of 4 or 5. I found it very useful for when he was incorrectly recognising letters at pre-school.
The game helps them develop co-ordination skills. Sparkles add immediate feedback that worked very well with my own son. You can turn this off if you prefer.
I've added more options. You can now select which letters you want to work on individually.
There are 3 Apps in the series :
* Touch Follow Shapes
* Touch Follow Alphabet
* Touch Follow Numbers
Because it's aimed at younger children, the User Interface is deliberately simple, so they can play with minimal intervention.
Use Settings to change options for playing sounds and/or the sparkle effect
If you like it, please review it.
I do appreciate feedback and consider any suggestions made so please email me.
Some reviews so far for the Touch Follow series - thanks!

Touch Follow Shapes - *****

Sometimes the simplest of ideas become the best, this is a multi- sensory app that brings writing shapes to life. This app makes drawing shapes easy with a glide of the finger and basically once the child keeps moving his/her finger they can't go wrong. Sensory learning is great for young children and special needs children including autism to learn and they should enjoy learning with this app. Brilliant...
Excellent! - *****

I've been looking for exactly something like this! I'm an OT and love great apps. Only wish it started with vertical and horizontal.... And maybe progressed in a developmental sequence... Or let you choose which shapes came up. Still worth it. Downloading the alphabet and numbers now.
Fantastic - *****

The colors and movements keep the kids engaged while they learn their numbers. Great for the classroom!!

Ratings and Reviews
The touch follow shape app is better, but similarly, I wish you could chose which letter you wanted to work on or if you want capitals or lower case. The app itself is a good concept but I feel it needs more settings/options to be worth paying for. As is, should be a free app. Please consider updating! It has potential to be excellent!
