The Touch Follow Series
These apps for under 5s, were designed for to improve coordination by getting children to follow a shape, letter or number.
They are not intended to teach children how to read or write. Having the child see the shapes before they are taught reading, should help them recognise the symbols.
The idea was to give children something where they can follow shapes with their finger. I thought it would help them with coordination and recognizing the shape.
There are 4 Apps in the series :

Sometimes the simplest of ideas become the best, this is a multi- sensory app that brings writing shapes to life. This app makes drawing shapes easy with a glide of the finger and basically once the child keeps moving his/her finger they can’t go wrong. Sensory learning is great for young children and special needs children including autism to learn and they should enjoy learning with this app. Brilliant…

I’ve been looking for exactly something like this! I’m an OT and love great apps. Only wish it started with vertical and horizontal…. And maybe progressed in a developmental sequence… Or let you choose which shapes came up. Still worth it. Downloading the alphabet and numbers now.
