Touch and Write

Age Level: Ages 0–5
By Developer: Fizzbrain LLC

Pick a textured background and writing tool (such as pudding, whipped cream, etc., - all accompanied by squishy sounds) and let your child loose while writing and learning the alphabet with both upper and lowercase letters, numbers, simple words, or word lists you have created. Touch and Write is fun, entertaining and a great way to keep your child interested in learning.

When choosing 1 of the 4 tasks available, it is easy to change options, shown to the left of the screen. Tap the pencil for choices in writing tools, the notepad for different wallpaper, cupcake to toggle on/off guided lines. Follow the cupcakes, the music note toggles music on/off and the “P” allows for the phonics as well as letter sounds to be announced once a letter or word is completed. Everything is right at your fingertips.

Touch and Write is packed full pre-created word lists, such as the “AT” family and “AN” family. There are 80,000 words and names included in the database.

If you are looking for early reading and writing apps for your child, this is definitely a great app at a great price! Love it!
