Gappy Learns Writing by Spinlight Studios is an educational app for children aged two through five. With the help of the appealing bunny character, Gappy, children learn and practice upper and lower case letters in three common handwriting styles. The animations and sound effects keep children engaged while learning at their own pace and on their own terms. Successful completion of various letter activities is rewarded and reinforced by "presents" from Gappy- a series of 52 letter-related coloring sheets. The app collects no personal information and includes no in-app purchases. Unfortunately, it also collects no usage data, which would be a nice feature in order for parents to better track which letters children need to practice more. In general, Gappy Learns Writing is a practical and engaging way to give young children another reason to practice writing their letters.
