There is probably no better application to teach a child how to write the alphabet and the numbers 1-10. This application is extremely streamlined to serve that exact purpose. It is thoughtful and fun and teaches on a gradual learning approach. Each letter starts off by showing what it looks and sounds like. You then watch the application draw the letter. After this, you are prompted to trace the letter. Once done tracing, a blank screen allows one to practice what was just learned.
This three-step learning pattern is done for upper case and lower case letters and numbers. Using the settings you can change the font of the letters and numbers.
The application description recommends this app for ages 4-6, but I know several 2 and 3 year olds who could start excelling at this. It really is that simply programmed, with a simple but effective learning curve.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
