Learning to write letters and numerals will never be the same after a child tries LetterSchool. - Warren Buckleitner

Users and reviewers in the USA and many other countries are impressed by the innovative nature of the writing instructions, the app’s high quality and especially the pleasure that LetterSchool provides to children—and with good reason. Warren Buckleitner, who writes for Children’s Technology Review and the New York Times’ “Kid Tech” column, says of LetterSchool, “Learning to write letters and numerals will never be the same after a child tries LetterSchool on an iPad's slippery screen. This single app from the Netherlands has raised the bar for all letter/numeral recognition apps.”

There seems to be no end to the acclaim being showered on mobile game LetterSchool. The app recently won a prestigious award from Children’s Technology Review, which honors only the highest-quality children’s products in interactive media. The highly positive response from parents and experts underscores LetterSchool’s success. A list of all the app’s awards and reviews is available at

LetterSchool competes with advanced mobile games, boasting high-quality graphics, effects and animations at a level rarely seen in apps for young children. The game’s greatest achievement is that it creates a very stimulating learning environment, offering kids a truly compelling gaming experience. Children work magic as they write letters and numbers with sparkling candy, squealing tires, cuddly animals, whistling trains and humming lawn mowers. The extensive practice in two distinct levels ensures the child’s knowledge of letters and numbers will take permanent root. The wide variety of games captures the attention and keeps players practicing their letters and numbers, over and over again. It’s just like being at a party!

LetterSchool is a simple, consistent, clue-based method designed to work for all children. As many people have experienced, the things people discover on their own stick with them the longest. LetterSchool guides kids by providing subtle yet highly effective visual and auditory feedback when it intelligently detects that they need a hand. This way, young players are completely free to explore the mysterious world of letters, acquiring letter and number fluency in their own, intuitive way.

In order to make LetterSchool a rock-solid piece of software, Boreaal Publishers and PiMZ didn’t just rely on their own experience in education, software development and computer graphics—little experts tested the app thoroughly, leaving no stone unturned. LetterSchool is a universal application for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
