    Hello Everyone,

    We just released these set of educational games for the iPod Touch and iPhone.

    If you have young children's, they probably play the games on your iPhone? My kids always want to play. So these are nice educational games, that will keep your children entertained while traveling in the car, at the store, in a waiting room, and anywhere you're at.

    ABC Letters Tracing has been a huge hit! So we have released a lite version for parents to try out with their children, it's free: ABC Letters Tracing Lite.

    ABC Match
    ABC Letters Tracing
    Artie Anteater is Angry, ABC Book
    123 Counting & Colors

    And take a look at the video demos at our website:

    www.redbotsoftware.com

    I've talked to teachers, and they say that a young child's mind is constantly making new associations from the things they see and hear. So these games focus on letters of the alphabet, pictures, the sounds of letters and pictures, and does it interactively, as a fun game, that kids will enjoy playing.

    Please take a look, and I would appreciate any feedback and/or advice, I want to make the games even better, if I can.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for buying it! If your kids like it, please leave a review in the AppStore. It would be great help for us, so other parents will know that it's a good app.

    I'm going to mark this down as a maybe for my youngest - i need to go watch your demo's and see if she could benefit from them all, or just the matching one.

    OK, she probably IS beyond the rest - but they look like something she would enjoy anyway :D

    Thanks for putting effort into kids software!!

    I ended up buying the ABC Match, and DD played it during gymnastics.

    We had an issue on level 8 (i'm assuming that is what the 8/20 means?). She got white squares instead of the "stars" when she tapped on any thing on the screen.

    What we had was (i sent myself a TM with the info), Duck, bear, penquin, goat, d,p,b,g. Wasn't sure if that was important or not.

    She really liked the looks of it, telling me it looked cool when i opened it for her (she's only a week into being 5). Other than headphone issues, she seemed to hear and understand the voice clearly.

    One thing i do wish - and there could BE this choice, i didn't get a chance to check - is that there was an option to turn it on so that it automatically read what was there before letting them choose. She would just sit and click them all till it matched (for the ones she doesn't know, which is about 20 at this point). If i was watching her, she would patiently click on each item to get the sounds, then match them. Like i said, i have no clue if you have that in there or not - i just was wishing for it at 5:40 tonight :D

    (really NOT, i really wanted to play with MY toy and listen to MY music... but noooooo, the kid got to play with it. HMPH. She forgot her Nano.....)

    I'll update with a review for you tomorrow though.

    I will look into this issue. It takes so long to recreate some of these bugs, how long was the game on for, it was on page 8 of 20, gone through once or the second or more time? This will help me find and fix the bug.

    You want an option to have it read the names of each item and the letters automatically? I find that kids like to explore, press things, have it do something, they enjoy it. Do you think it's because the child did not know what to press, or how to use the game? If that is the issue, I could fix this some other way.

    Thanks for all your great feedback, and for your support, I truly appreciate it! :D

    It looks like you can trace letters with the fingers? Is that right? Looks interesting. I may have to pick this one up.

    It had only been on/run long enough to get there - no more than 10 minutes? This was the first time thru it. I was at gymnastics for the older 2, so i was splitting the brain. I didn't watch her play yesterday, so i don't know if it popped up again or not.

    That first time i literally did the sync and ran out the door...

    I'd at least like the option to turn on to automatically read the letters.

    LOL, keep in mind i'm dealing with an older "toddler" - at just turned 5. She has about no interest in learning ALL the alphabet sounds - but begs to do math lessons 5 times a day. I think if she was a year younger it wouldn't be as big of a deal. I'm just trying to trick her into learning more than the first 4 letters in her name and her sisters name. :D

    Thanks for actually asking for it and responding to it!

    Yes, to clarify, the letters tracing game has dotted arrow that guides your child to draw letters with their finger. They will actually learn to draw letters. No keypad!:D

    Check out the video demo at our website, this will give you the best idea.

    Thanks!

    Hello Everyone,

    We have done may bug fixes and refinements. And have adopted many of the suggestions from community parents. There is also a new audio voice response when the child does something right or wrong. Plus a reward/score screen/animation at the end.

    All new items are in the 1.1.x updates, which are free for anyone that has the game already.

    Remember keep your suggestions coming, we work hard to make these games better! :D
