ABC On The Go for iPhone Helps Kids Learn to Read

I-itch Inc. announced Monday the release of ABC On The Go, an app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad that is designed to help kids learn to read. The app includes three games that introduce and reinforce letter recognition in young minds, as well as the sounds associated with each letter.

The three games include:

  • Classic introduces each letter of the alphabet using a slideshow format with easy prompts and a “SHAKE feature” to work your way from A to Z
  • See It Say It reinforces letter recognition and initial letter sounds, using both visual and auditory senses
  • Hear It Hit It was designed to have the child rely completely on auditory discrimination to learn the specific sounds that each letter in the alphabet makes

The company said that each game builds on the lessons of the previous game. The model behind the learning is to reward children only for the correct choices — choosing incorrectly results in nothing happening, as opposed to getting a buzzer.

Device Requirements:

  • iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
  • iOS 3.0 or later
  • 8.8 MB

ABC On The Go 1.0 is priced at US$1.99, and is available on the App Store now.
