This app is horrible. It's awkward, boring, and clumsy, and with the new iOS, the Notification Center tab is constantly being activated by my son when accessing the letters, and he has tiny fingers. Spend the $3 on a pencil and paper. Giving 1 star is generous...

Is anyone else having issues with the hand calibration. It takes upwards of 10 minutes before the program successfully completes its calibration. Looks like a bug to me but I haven't seen any other comments about it.

I am a school OT and love is app! My students will play the pinching activity far longer than they will use tongs/clips to practice pinching. Could you possibly add a choice of what they want to catch (balls, butterflies, etc.)? Some of my students are a bit wary of the crabs!

Dexteria - Fine Motor Skill Development is one of the mainstays in an OT's toolbox for teaching kids how to write. Why? Because it looks at learning to write from a developmental point of view. If kid's hands are not prepared to write- meaning the musculature is not there, then they can't control a writing utensil to form letters - Period. Dexteria has 2 games to develop hand skills before the third tracing the letters. The first game "Tap it", helps warm up the hand and introduces isolating the fingers, motor planning and sequencing. Using your thumb as an anchor each finger is called upon to tap a colored triangle. It's sort of like the light up memory game, but for fingers. The second game, "Pinch it" helps develop thumb and index control by picking up first little crabs that are stationary, and then stepping it up to moving targets. Finally, after giving the hands a brief wake up, tracing the letters are introduced. I love how every aspect of this app is thought out, from color schemes to activities. All modes can be translated to off screen games to refine these skills with real life manipulatives, which is the point of using an app for therapy. Data for accuracy and speed can be tracked and there is an in app purchase to expand data collection for unlimited users. Recommended.

I am an OT working with students 5-18. I have used it with maybe 5 kids, mostly high school. Would like to be able to track each client within the program. Would like more than the 3 games. Kids seem challenged by the crabs. I couldn't get the first level to work.
