Palo Alto, California – Pre-K Letters and Numbers is the first of a series of applications aimed at young children who are just setting out to build a foundation of language and numeracy, develop fine motor skills, understand phonics and build their vocabulary with the bonus of blending common letters and counting.
Leanna Lodte from TiPB The #1 iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad blog says, “I was impressed by this app. It runs very smooth, has soothing music, and speaks clearly. I look forward to letting my daughter learn from it.”
BrightStart’s unique characters, music, sounds and over 75 fruit, vegetable, animal and items around the house illustrations help with the learning experience. Elel, Momo, Lili and friends guide the child through the letters, numbers and phonics experience with clear instructions, applause for success and encouraging phrases for mistakes.
Parents and teachers can review performance through their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or via BrightStartApps’ website which shows a Report Card highlighting success rates, bell curve ranking amongst peers and recommended development areas for each registered user.
In the recently updated version, BrightStart has incorporated some of the really useful feedback they received from parents. The error boundaries have been relaxed for younger children without compromising the general accuracy for the app and the ‘uh-oh’ has been replaced with much more encouraging phrases.
D. Norman from ICT for Educator says, “The thing that I like most about the app is that you have the option to create individual users and monitor their progress through reports. This would be particularly useful for classroom environments or for parents who have more than one child using the app.”
BrightStart is a member of Moms with Apps, a collaborative group of family-friendly developers seeking to promote quality apps for kids and families.
