What was the initial inspiration for your app?
Michael: I just didn’t like the way my son was being taught how to write. He was constantly making the same mistakes over and over again, and since paper provides zero feedback, he basically learned how to write letters in the wrong way. And since I couldn’t find any good apps in AppStore — none of them seemed to actually teach handwriting at all — I decided to create my own app.
What is your favorite aspect of your app?
Michael: I love the scenes with animated objects on them! We created 5 scenes, each with its own set of objects and music, and kids enjoy playing with those objects a lot. Also, I really like the way History page works. It stores all attempts to write all letters, so I can check and see which letters are difficult for my son and why.
Finally, in the new version of iTrace which we recently released, we created a page where parents can print out paper worksheets! It’s the first iPad app ever which allows you to print highest quality worksheets, so that kids can practice on paper as well.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
As a father of two boys, I can easily see how kids can waste a lot of time on games or apps that don’t teach anything – they are just time-killers. When we started to work on iTrace, our goal was to create a 100% educational app that is almost as entertaining as games. When I was testing iTrace on kids, I saw how they can spend up to 30 minutes tracing letters and words, getting stars, playing with animated objects, etc. That was a fantastic experience! Just imagine — tracing is considered to be one of the most boring things in the worlds, and kids are doing it for almost half an hour without wanting to stop!
I would never release iTrace without our consultants: school and kindergarten teachers, and all the kids who participated in beta-testing and their parents. And we would never be able to release this great new version without the users who purchased iTrace and provided a lot of great feedback. Thank you all!
