Description

"This has gone from a great app to an awesome app with the new update. Thanks for listening to our feedback and doing these changes. (Customer review)
"Brilliant - fun way to learn Victorian cursive. I have been waiting for an app like this - a fun way teach Victorian Modern Cursive, an app my special needs son enjoys playing with and learns as he goes. He can even use a stylus to draw the letters and build the muscle memory in his hand, that can later be transferred to writing with a pencil or pen. All children will benefit from this app, presenting learning writing in an exciting format, great guides to help learn where to start and stop letters, and great celebration pages to keep them interested and rewarded. I like that you can use the word lists or make your own so then the app grows with the child into writing full words, not just letters. I think I will be trying it out with my son's spelling lists too and double benefit - writing and spelling. It is also great to be able to teach Aussie formats such as Victorian Modern Cursive.... Almost all the apps I have tried have been US based. Thanks FizzBrain! You are a star!" - (Customer review)

"Australian Touch and Write" also allows you to create your own lists of names and words so that you can individualize the learning experience for your child!
