[prMac.com] Newark, California - Redbot Software Inc, today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of ABC Letters Tracing 1.3.0, an update to their educational app for iPhone and iPod touch. ABC Letters Tracing serves to help parents teach their children the alphabet, based on popular letter writing and tracing activity books used in schools. The child uses their finger to trace each letter on the screen of the device. As each letter appears the child hears the name of the letter along with the corresponding phonic pronunciation. An associated animal also appears above each letter.
As the child outlines each letter, following dotted guide arrows, they are encouraged with feedback. The app will auto correct, and ask the child to try again if they make a mistake. There are sparkly stars that appear as they draw on the screen with their finger, which adds an additional layer of fun for the child. The child can also tap on the animal, and the name will be read to them.
There are options for random or alphabetical order. There is an option for "easy mode" which disables the auto-correct, for younger children, that may have more trouble tracing the letters accurately. Parents can use this app to keep their children entertained while traveling in the car, at the store, in a waiting room, etc. And instead of playing sometimes questionable games, the child can have fun and learn with Artie Anteater and his freinds.
Additional key features:
* Guided arrow for each letter, with auto-correct
* Points are awarded throughout the app for completing the letters
* The child will hear encouragement throughout app and at the end with their high score
New with update 1.3.0:
* Improved feedback options. When a child makes a mistake, they are encouraged to "try again" or "you can do it" or "almost there"
* High resolution images replace all characters and artwork throughout the app. (Optimized for iPhone 4 display)
* Many performance improvements and optimizations
