Enterprising educators are getting into the app-making game with the creation of an app that helps kids learn how to read.
ABC on the Go includes interactive ways for kids to recognize letters and sounds.
Here's a quick description from MacWorld:
Classic mode showcases each letter in a slideshow format, with simple voice prompts to move through the alphabet. Hear It Hit It—beyond sounding like a good strategy for blind boxers—tasks kids with determining which letter sounds they hear. And See It Say It uses visual and auditory cues to firm up the letter/sound relationships.
