Learning to write letters and numerals will never be the same after a child tries LetterSchool.
Children’s Technology Review
Amsterdam, the Netherlands (letterschool.com) (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
This week, the educational app LetterSchool snagged a position in the top 10 on the American and Canadian iTunes iPad Education charts. In the Netherlands, the Dutch version has held a steady position in the top five since the software’s launch in March. LetterSchool has also reached the top 10 in Belgium and Egypt, and the app is steadily approaching this magical boundary in other countries. Strikingly, the writing app for children is also regularly keeping Angry Birds company in the overall top 100 Paid Apps in several countries.

LetterSchool’s enviable position among the App Store’s top 10 is reason to celebrate for Boreaal Publishers, the Dutch company behind the app. Reaching the top in several countries is an impressive achievement for this tiny newcomer to the apps market, particularly since the App Store is overcrowded with alphabet and tracing apps. Despite the plentiful competition, LetterSchool’s creators felt they had something valuable to add, and in doing so hoped to raise the bar for this type of app. It seems they’ve succeeded: the continuous highly positive response from parents and teachers underscores LetterSchool’s important role as an innovator in handwriting instruction.
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 have 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. 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.
