No left handed letter formation option. My daughter loves this app however the letter formation is only for right handed children and she is left handed. For that reason I have only given it 4 out of 5. I would give it 5 if a LH letter formation option were added later.
The app is poorly structured and frustrating for kids. It begins quite well, with a friendly bee prompting the child to create a new personalised flower pot, which my daughter really liked. The flowerpot has a number of flowers, with a petal for each letter, that the child can unlock as they progress. That's where it falls down though, because it won't unlock the next set of letters until the child can blend, write and spell words with the current set. For example, the app introduces the child to S, A and T and expects them to be able to blend them into syllables and write words with them before it introduces them to P, I and N. I like the way the letters are introduced in groups but this could be done as subsets of multiple stages; pronunciation, blending, spelling and then writing.
Have reinstalled 3xs but only part of this app seems accessible. Shame my toddler loves it.
If this app can be streamed on google chromecast, it will get 5 stars from me.
Good to use..
Addresses an issue where assets could be missing or incomplete due to a poor or intermittent internet connection when downloading the app for the first time. The app now detects if any assets are missing upon opening and asks permission to download them if necessary.
