App Description

2012 BEST APP EVER AWARDS – TOP 10 Nominee – Best Game for Kids under 9

ipadeducators.com: 5/5 STARS
Simply put, this is the best app we have yet seen for early letter learning. The attention to detail and range of options is outstanding and we highly recommend it for Early Years teachers.


When my daughter was learning her letters, I thought long and hard about the best way to teach her the alphabet. The result is this collection of six exercises:

• Flashcards – introduces individual capital letters and their sounds, along with animals for kids to associate with each sound. Users can trace the letters, and can hear each letter name by touching it.

• Fonts – lets user practice with uppercase letters while also introducing lowercase letters. Users can practice tracing letters in five different fonts.

• Magnetic Board – a drawing board for users to practice their letters freehand in six colors. Users can also drag letters around on the electronic equivalent of a magnetic board. The resulting artwork or message can be photographed and saved to your Desktop.

• Word Scramble – users unscramble the letters to spell the names of more than 65 animals.

• Matching – match capital letters to their lowercase partners, and match letters with their corresponding animals. Teaches correct alphabet sequence as well as connection between capital and lowercase letters.

• Pairs – memory matching card game where users match up uppercase/uppercase pairs, uppercase/lowercase pairs, or letter/animal pairs.

Other features:
• No ads or in-app purchases.
• Free lite version available.
• This app is multilingual (English, German, Italian, Spanish, French and Swedish). The languages can be changed in nearly every activity, allowing your child to learn that "A" is for ALLIGATOR in English, AFFE in German, or ABEILLE in French.
• Allows the user to work with both initial sounds and letter names.
• User can easily switch from print to handwriting font, and from upper to lower case.
• Includes a reward system game kids will love
• Settings and external links are protected in a “parents only” area to prevent children from accidentally ending up on Facebook, in email, or in other internet locations you don’t want them to go.
• Includes a timer that allows parents to limit playing time.
• The sound can be switched on and off at any time.
I hope that this ABC app interests you and provides your child with a great start in the world of letters.
