Gappys Mystery Letters is an educational alphabet app by Spinlight Studio. This app is fun and encourages letter recognition, it also helps your child with hand eye-coordination, writing skills, and matching. All these skills are fundamental keys in a child’d development. Educational games on the iPad are great tools in helping our children in this day and age. It’s how they learn and explore. This is a great choice to sneak in some learning while your child has fun playing on their iPad.
This app has three sections, all that will get your child excited about drawing and coloring on the iPad. The main character of this app is a cute little rabbit named Gappy.
The first game is to guess the mystery letter that Gappy is thinking about by tracing the star and then choosing the matching letter.
The second section lets your child practice drawing the letters of the alphabet by connecting the dots to form a letter.
Lastly it brings the entire app together by providing 52 coloring pages your child can color and be creative with. In order to unlock the 52 coloring sheets your child first must guess some of Gappy’s mystery letters.
Spinlight Studio has a great private policy and I appreciate that their apps have no third-party ads, no in-app purchases, and no social network links. There is also a parental section that requires you to perform a specific task in order to enter; a nice child-proof feature. Within the parent section you are able to adjust the settings and choose between upper case, lower case, or a mix of both. As well as choose between three different letter style fonts. You can also turn the music on or off in the settings. The parent section also offers a way to connect with Spinlight news giving you an option to sign up for their newsletter, rate the app, or report an issue.
This app makes a great combination with a stylus, like Kidori we reviewed a while ago. We are in the process of reviewing another stylus made for kids – iCrayon. It is an interactive stylus that is kid friendly and fun to use! Stay tuned for a special review all about the iCrayon.
