Created by father Jesse Grosjean to entertain his daughter and to help her learn the alphabet, Hog Bay Letters is perfect for toddlers who are working towards letter recognition and presents a fun challenge even for older children up to adults.
Using the dynamic tile board, Letters provides a fun interactive way for kids to go through the alphabet and identify letters in ABC order. Even the youngest children will get the hang of using this application quickly since its simple design makes it easy to learn.
To begin, tap on the screen and then as the letters appear, tap on them in alphabetic order to clear them. While the letters appear in the same place every time you play, they move according to how quickly you clear them. Letters become larger as time passes and they are not identified. This prevents frustration but gently encourages a toddler to tap on the correct letter. The moving letters makes the game a little more challenging for preschoolers who already know their letters.
While I love the vivid graphics and smooth animation, I wish that the letters did change position so the game wasn’t always the same. A version that had lowercase letters would be most welcome for those kids who already know their uppercase letters. I also think a built in timer could make the game even more challenging for older students and parents who want to beat their time.
Summary: Overall, this is a fabulous free educational application that I would highly recommend adding to add to your iPhone if you are the parent of a toddler or preschooler. For a demo of the application, click here to visit the Hog Bay website where you can see Letters in action.
Cost: Normally $0.99, this Letters is currently available from the iTunes store as a free download. Click on the link below to go directly to the iTunes store to download.
