Product Description

Tracing ABC is a fun way for preschoolers to learn their ABCs and digits.

NOTE: We are glad to announce Tracing ABC now supports Spanish!
* Added Spanish support for all packages including word practice with over 600 words!!!

After conducting research on the subject, we decided to create a new way to learn by tracing.
In Tracing ABC we have built a much easier mode for younger players, so that they can learn the letters and numbers without as yet having the motor skills for more difficult tracing.
The guided mode works by guiding the cursor through the right track, even if the player just goes in the right general direction.

Tracing ABC is aimed for children ages 4 and up.

Tracing ABC supports capital letters, lower-case letters, digits and several shapes.

How To Play
Press Play, choose a package and start tracing.
Slide freely between the different characters in the package.

To change the tracing mode, go to Options on the main screen.

Tracing ABC works on all kinds of tablets, and on all kinds of android 2.2 devices in general.

Future releases: we plan to add full-word tracing, word games and more cool features in the upcoming releases.
The current price is an introductory price.

3.0 out of 5 stars good to use in OT February 21, 2012
By dart

This app is really a 3.5. I would love to move it up if the developer fixes the letter formation errors listed below.

I had another program like this, but it couldn't move to the SD card so I had to remove it. I like this program. I can definitely see myself using this with my Autistic students to work on letter and shape formation.

This installed easily and was easily moved to the sd card. Most of the letter formations are the ones I use with my students. v and w are formed incorrectly, and I will not let my students use this to work on those letters. (the w is made of 4 separate strokes, should be 1.) I don't like the "tail" on the t, but it is workable. Lower case k is also incorrect but workable. The most important letters that programs like this tend to get wrong like d, are correct!

I also like the addition of shapes and numbers, that is something that I have not seen in similar programs. Next, I would love the ability to input a short word for my students to work on one letter at a time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great App To Use WITH Ur Child... February 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
I read all the reviews & tried the app myself. I think this app is great. I know my 4 yr old will love this.
Great FAOTD.

And to all the reviewers freaking out about their "child playing on the $200 Kindle Fire" -- Really???
Why don't u try to apply the philosophy I have which is SUPERVISE UR KID WHEN THEY'RE USING IT.
When my 4yr old daughter wants to play on my Kindle I do something like Actually Sit Next To Her & Watch & Play With Her!
Hmmm...what a concept.

5.0 out of 5 stars App worth paying for!! Got it free February 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
My Autistic child plays with app all the time. He was a little hesitant at first but it did not take him long before he traced all the alphabet and shapes. He loves the clapping at the end. He wears down my batteries on phone using this app. He knows to follow the stars to trace a letter or shape which helps with hand-eye coordination. He also repeat the words that comes after he traces the letters or shapes which helps with his memories process. LOVE LOVE this app. I would give it 6 stars if I could. I would recommens this to anyone who has an Austic child having problems with letters and shapes. My son hates to use a pencil or crayon but does not want to put this "GAME" down. He plays it over and over again and loves it the same everyday. I am so grateful that I found this app and the free App of the day to boot. Thanks so very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5+++ stars **********

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindergarten teacher review of Tracing ABC January 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
I like that it has upper and lower case letters in the Manuscript style. Students are able to shape trace both letters and numbers and are told the letter names......starry fireworks if done correctly. App has chalkboard writing sound as children trace the letter. The part I do not like is the switch from Manuscript style to D'Nelian style letters when practicing word writing. They trace Manuscript, but show finished word in D'Nelian. Please stick to the same letter style throughout the app. Also the one letter of the word at a time instead of the whole word on the screen to trace altogether needs to be fixed. As other reviewers mention some letters are made incorrectly. Android based apps need some work to become more useful in the classroom. Teachers and school systems want to use Android based tablets because they are less expensive and works just as we'll as the alternative iPad. However the APPS must catch up to the EDUCATIONAL quality of the iPad apps.

4.0 out of 5 stars drafting February 21, 2012
many people have gicen this app bad revies because of the improper methods it teaches M,N,W but in drafting and architecture classes you are taught to make all your letters with downward strokes. this stroke deacreses the chance of tearing the thin paper with your lead pencil which develope chisel like points. so yes bad app for everyday use good if you want your kid to be and architect.

3.0 out of 5 stars better as a spelling ap March 8, 2015
By Kit
Verified Purchase
I really like the way the stars lead you through making the letters. However, when the whole word is shown after tracing, it shows up in perfect script, rather than showing what your attempt at the letters looked like. Also, the ability to enter your own words, specifically names. Is highly touted, so having to choose between words all lowercase and all uppercase is unfortunate. The ability to create words with a capital strting letter and the rest lower case would greatly improve this ap.
While I was disappointed by some parts of this application, I really liked the word lists which are ordered by age and grouped logically. I got this app for practicing letters with my 5 year old. Instead I will use it for spelling with my 9 year old.
