Gappy's First Words is a well constructed and versatile little app. It teaches young children the alphabet using both phonics as well as proper letter names. There are several levels of game play which drill in spelling and reading at an elementary level. There are over 200 three letter words in all.
The hero of the game is Gappy, a cute little bunny. The players task is to help Gappy find her way home by building bridges made of words. Every ten bridges built brings Gappy home, winning you a piece of her house. These pieces can then be used to do a remodel of Gappy's home. Fun stuff!
The app can be switched between upper case and lower case. There is also a letters or alphabet learning section, which gives you the choice of either letter names or sounds.
Overall the app has 211 three-letter words and can make a possible total of 720 houses!
This is a very neat little app that we feel well worth the download!
Requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
