What it is and what you do with it: a set of interactive alphabet/phonics activities helping kids discover names and sounds of letters.

The app works with the Marbotic Smart Letters wooden set.

Activities include: interactive flashcards (place a letter on the screen and the app will recognize it and display relevant animation), interactive alphabet and a set of mini games, e.g. matching letters with their sounds or recognizing lowercase/cursive versions.

What we liked: excellent concept: combines the attractiveness of an iPad app with physical letters. Good variety of simple activities for letter recognition and learning. Works very well - we haven't experienced any problems with the wooden letters. Very easy to use. No ads or other distracting features. Available in 8 languages.

What we didn't like: we wish there were some reporting/progress tracking features.
