ABCParade is three alphabet learning applications in one: animated letters of the alphabet, letter recognition and a letter parade.
Each of the 26 letters has a colorful animation that shows the letter appearing as an object whose name begins with that letter then morphs into the letter itself. For example, the A begins as an airplane that changes into an A as it lands. The B is a balloon; it's big, it's blue and it bounces too. Each letter can be chosen individually from a keyboard (screenshot, upper left) or the animated alphabet can be played in its entirety.
The Letter Recognition page features another colorful keyboard of the alphabet; touching a key plays the sound of that letter. Pressing the Find button will ask your child to find a particular letter and, after the child taps a key, give a response as to whether the correct letter was chosen.
The Letter Parade displays all the letters in sequence and moves them across the screen at a constant speed so your child can recite the alphabet in time with the parade.
There are several options including:
• choice of voices for both the letter recognition and parade pages.
• five different speeds for the parade.
• full or half size parade letters.
• optional sound track for the animations.
ABCParade runs natively on iPad and iPhone/iPod touch and is fully optimized for retina display.
