There are cards included, featuring a letter (A-Z) and information on how to "paint" it. They also feature a word beginning with the letter and a picture of that (e.g. A features an Ant).
There are no cards with numbers but I guess its easy to print your own. You're not limited to cards; you can also hold the device over regular paper.
I was surprised how much kids like tracing the letter - even when they're yet a bit too young to write. I noted down their names or names of their parents and they enjoyed "writing" (tracing) these - surprised the parents, too.
I haven't tried the app. From what I read the idea is that your smartphone takes the role of the cards and displays math puzzles and such.
One small (understandable) disadvantage is that the cards are english. I'll have a hard time explaining why "Kuh" starts with a 'C'. Again, this can be fixed by printing your own cards.
Another disadvantage is the battery: Like with the other Jots it is not meant to be replaced. According to the manufacturer, it should hold out for about 50000 erase cycles but still it feels like every press of the button brings the device closer to landfill material.
I'm also a bit worried that the device has very limited use for adults. It might be helpful if you want to learn a new language with "strange-formed-letters". You could use it as a regular Jot but that kind of blocks the main feature.
So maybe this device mainly is useful for kids. As such, I definitely recommend it.
