Editor's Choice Award - Children's Technology Review

Learning to write letters and numerals will never be the same after a child tries LetterSchool on an iPad's slippery screen.

The prestigious Editor’s Choice Award from Children’s Technology Review (CTR) honors only the highest-quality children’s products in interactive media. Of LetterSchool the evaluation report says, “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.” CTR uses a methodical evaluation system that measure five factors applying to most children’s interactive media experiences: ease of use, educational value, entertainment value, design features and overall value.

LetterSchool lets kids have fun while they practice the complex skills of handwriting. The method’s educational value is strongly appreciated by parents, teachers and therapists. The handwriting app has already been introduced into many homes, schools and therapy practices all over the world. LetterSchool’s wide variety of games captures the attention and keeps players practicing their letters and numbers, over and over again. That probably explains the app’s success, despite the fact that handwriting isn’t exactly a trendy subject. The continuous highly positive response from parents and teachers underscores LetterSchool’s important role as an innovator in handwriting instruction. By spending $2.99 on LetterSchool, schools not only save money on expensive handwriting methods and software, but also on precious teaching time. A list of the app’s awards and experts’ reviews is available at LetterSchool.com.

LetterSchool competes with advanced mobile games, boasting high-quality graphics, effects and animations at a level rarely seen in apps for young children. In order to make LetterSchool a rock-solid piece of software, the makers didn’t just rely on their own experience in education, software development and computer graphics—little experts tested the app thoroughly. LetterSchool is a universal application for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
