A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn how to write capital and lowercase alphabet letters and numerals from zero to nine by tracing the letter or number or by copying it. Letter Tracer does not offer feedback on whether the letter or number has been formed correctly, nor does it offer direction in forming the letters. Handwriting is a skill that practice can perfect, and this app offers the opportunity for practice without intervention or feedback. Letter Tracer is a practical app that gives kids practice in writing letters and numbers but offers no helpful feedback.
Ease of Play
This app is very easy to get started with, but most of the additional functionality is accessible from the settings menu. Once the additional options are discovered, however, it has a very intuitive interface.
Products & Purchases
From the settings screen, you can tap the question mark icon to reach another screen with buttons to leave a review in the iTunes store, or to email the developers with feedback.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Letter Tracer Preschool Letters Writing Practice will help your children learn their letters and numbers by sight and by name. Your children will also be able to practice tracing the letters and numbers, and writing them on their own. The interface to this educational app is very basic and uncluttered with a few options to customize what you see and hear.
Is It Any Good?
If you're looking for an educational app to give your children some practice in writing their letters and numbers, LETTER TRACING PRESCHOOL LETTERS WRITING PRACTICE is a good choice. The interface is well done, and there are just enough options to keep things interesting for your child. The voice that says the name of each character can be set to be a man, a woman, or a child, or the voice can be turned off. And being able to change the color and thickness of the pen can alter the difficulty of the app. While this educational app is primarily a letter and number teaching app, children will find other ways to use it, such as creating more elaborate drawings that include the letter or number on the screen.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
