All available features were considered in this review.

App description

Children can learn about shapes (such as a diamond or star), capital and small block letters as well as cursive letters, and numbers, by tracing along with their fingers. Game play is intuitive and aided by voice overs. This app includes colourful high resolution artwork, encouraging audio prompts, and creative sound effects. Tracing along the shapes, letters and numbers requires fine motor skills and may help improve handwriting skills.

Reviewers comments

This app does not require the user to create an account or to provide any personal information. Game play is free of ads. In-app purchases (for the full version or separate components) are restricted to the adult section, which is protected through a maths problem ("which of these numbers are divisible by 3"). Parents can provide their name and email address to receive a report card, in order to track their child's performance and progress. There is no connectivity to social networks.

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.
