This only works in wide mode, but on my iPad mini this cuts off important parts of the app. I can’t access the whole top line of letters in the choose your own letter mode. I do like the methodology, but I really hope they will update to fix bugs.

Too sensitive

This app really needs a variable sensitivity setting because the expectation is so high as to be almost unobtainable. I'm not advocating for sloppy handwriting but there is no room for even the slightest error on this app. This a shame because, far from encouraging my daughter to keep practicing, it actively discourages her and makes writing a chore. I would be great if the sensitivity could be adjusted based on the child's fine motor abilities.

Keeps on erasing progress!

Like other reviewers have mentioned, it keeps on erasing the progress my 4 year old has made. It is hard to keep your child motivated to earn the cards if whenever they work hard to get one it is erased! Please fix this issue!

Wet Dry Try....it's the BEST!!!

Great educational app for parents, teachers and specialists. Love that I can see the students progress and errors so I modify instruction and remediation activities.

Leads to nothing but tears

Reviewed on 12/13/18 1:05 PM

My 4 year old was reduced to tears with this app. Her pre school teaches this way and so we wanted to follow through. Even the slightest finger lift or deviation from the line will cause a ding telling the child she did it wrong. Extremely frustrating for her to use. Even when I tried to help I found it to be way too sensitive for a toddler to use. Waste of money.

Nice idea, but...

I love the app, it works well and is a great teaching tool. However, only being able to use it with one student (unless you pay more for an already expensive app to add only 3 students) makes it not worth it.

Whis it was better:(

As a teacher I love "handwriting without tears". I wanted this app to be great. It is too expensive for me to run with more then a couple of students. I will stay with the non app version

Boring

Not worth the cost...too boring. Not challenging at all.

Great tool and nice improvements!

Grobenstein's Review of Handwriting Without Tears

Reviewed on 12/13/18 1:05 PM

This is a nice simulation of the "real" chalkboard Wet Dry Try activity, which I have used before. One of the features I like the most is that the app detects the different types of errors my kids are making, and it gives unique verbal feedback for each type. And now you can see a visual display of the child's errors and progress for a quick snapshot of what they need to work on most. Great to see this app evolve. Thanks HWT!

Horrible

This is horrible! There is no room for error. My son cries every time he tries to use it. There are other handwriting apps out there that are so much better! It isn't even worth the one star I had to give it!
