App for That: teaching kids to write
There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, @mfares asks:
Hey llofte, do you know of any good apps for kids who just started to learn how to write ? I need it for my nephew. Thanks.
To see what we found, follow along after the break!
iWriteWords [$2.99 - iTunes link] is a game that simultaneously teaches your child how to write. The objective is to help Mr. Crab collect numbers in a sequence - which just so happen to be in the shape of letters. When all the letters in the given word are drawn correctly, a cute drawing appears.
iWriteWords is a universal application for iPhone and iPad, so your nephew can practice his writing on multiple devices.
Bonus: Writing with your finger is not the same as writing with an appropriate instrument, so to enhance the learning experience, check out the Ten One Design Pogo Sketch!
