[prMac.com] Lantana, Texas - Deep Pocket Series LLC today introduces ABC Cursive Writing 1.0, their handwriting improvement solution for iPhone and iPod Touch. Designed to take advantage of the iPhone's unique abilities and interface, ABC Cursive Writing was specifically created to help adults improve their handwriting skills, yet fun for children who are learning the basics of cursive writing for the first time.
Users can practice the lower and upper case ABC(s) and numbers, as well as offering an easy way to practice words created by the child or parent. ABC Cursive Writing may be customized for a particular word or sentence phrase. The child can enter words at the top of the screen and the program will then present the letters in that specific sequence to create the words. This is ideal for children practicing their name, phone number or anything that parents want them to repeat.
"I truely feel that this app will help people have better handwriting which is a lifelong skill that is needed" said Dr. Harvey Castro, CEO and Founder of Deep Pocket Series LLC. "I think health care providers could reduce some medical errors by working on their handwriting."
The Doodle board allows children to draw pictures in different colors if they choose not to work on their handwriting. The colors are red, yellow, green, blue and purple. Other fun features include being able to erase letters by simply shaking the iPod/Phone. Taking pictures of the Doodle board or letters is as simple as pressing the Home Key and On/Off button at the same time. All work is erased by simply shaking the device.
While a stylus isn't necessary to use ABC Cursive Writing, to help the user become proficient in holding and using a pen, a stylus that works on iPhone or iPod Touch devices is recommended. This enables the child to practice the movements needed to recreate the letter. ABC Cursive Writing features many useful functions and is very simple and fun to use. It's an excellent way to keep adults and children alike engaged, and the perfect travel companion on those long trips.
* iPhone or iPod Touch 2.0 or later

ABC Cursive Writing 1.0 for iPhone is only $0.99 (USD) and available exclusively through Apple's App Store.
