This is such a great app! It was listed in our Top 12 Learn-To-Write Apps back in January because it is so well done and brilliant value for money at $0.99. There is so much in the app to help your child learn number and letter recognition, as well as introducing writing. There are also memory match games to reinforce learning, as well as the alphabet song for some extra repetition. I have previously recommended this as a Top Paid app, but strongly advise you now to download it for free!

There are a couple of pages with the alphabet listed. When each letter is tapped, an image is shown of an animal or object that begins with that letter. The name of the letter is said, along with its sound, and the name of the object/animal. The user then has the opportunity to write the letter by tracing dotted lines. Arrows are provided for guidance and the letters are like stencils with no possibility of writing outside the lines. One criticism I have of this app is that the letter W is written as four separate lines beginning at the top and finishing at the bottom.
The numbers are introduced in a similar way, with a picture and narration. There is also a screen with numbers 1-10 that the child can tap on to hear each number, and practice counting from one through ten. The memory match games help practice matching upper to lower case letters, letters to objects or animals, and objects or animals to themselves. I am sure you will be pleased with your "purchase" of this app, so hop on over to the app store now and download for FREE.
