Review: Kids Academy, ABC Alphabet Phonics Tracing iOS App




Introduction: Kids Academy specialises in early childhood educational apps, targeted specifically for ages 2-6 years old. This is the second app from their range that I have reviewed, and this review is for their ABC alphabet phonics tracing app.

It is designed to teach children to write by tracing the letters in a simple but effective way. It shows them with clear and helpful guidelines; you can pick between uppercase and lowercase.

The graphics are virbrant, and the illustrations are fun and clear. In addition a great feature the app offers is verbal narration which is done with a pleasant and encouraging tone.

At the end of each task is a screen that praises the child, with up to three available stars to achieve; encouraging them positively.

The app is free to download.

Jacob's verdict:  He likes the app, he enjoys learning and he is really keen on learning to write, and he has been making good use of this app. His favourite parts are the woman's voice instructions, and the awarded stars after each attempt at tracing a letter.



My verdict: This is a really simple app, but fun and full of great features.  I would recommend this app to kids that would like to learn to write, and/or improve/build their writing skills. You can download the app here for free.
