App description

This educational app allows players to practice writing a wide range of letters (upper and lower case) and numbers in a fun and creative way. There are several levels and in the basic level the player traces the letter or number individually. In the more advanced levels words such as ‘cat’ and ‘cup’ are traced and once complete a drawing of each word is displayed. There is also a section in this app where players can learn the alphabet song.

Reviewers comments

This app provides an opportunity to practice recognition of letters and numbers, and how they are written. Players are directed to use their finger to follow the crab, who guides the player through the writing process. Once the letter is complete another apple is added to the apple tree. Note: ten apples are needed to complete each level. Fine motor skills are required to swipe a finger across the screen to trace each letter or number. Reading skills may also be developed in the section where whole words are used.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
