Endless Alphabet v1.0 for iOS Review

endlessalphabet_iconEndless Alphabet is a fun ABC learning app from Callaway Digital Arts. With the app, children can learn the alphabet in a fun way while also learning new words and what those words mean. Endless alphabet makes it fun by bringing all the letters to life and making them into cute, colorful little monster creatures that not only have their own unique animations, they also have their own unique voice, which I’ll touch on in a bit.

Audio in Endless Alphabet is definitely one of its most best features. This app is filled to the brim with audio. There’s cute background music playing constantly and like I said above, each letter has its own unique voice and sound. Tapping and dragging on a letter makes it yell out the sound their corresponding letter makes which is definitely a nice little touch. This allows children to hear the sounds each letter is supposed to make. There’s also the narrator of the app which sounds out each new word introduced as well as the definition of that word. Not only do children learn their alphabets, they also learn new words and their meanings.

That’s not to say art and animation in Endless Alphabet isn’t great either, because it is. The app starts off with your child choosing a letter in which a new word starting with that letter will appear. A stampede of creatures will run across the screen causing the letters in the word to scatter around the screen. Tap, hold, and drag each letter back to its correct position in the word. Doing so will cause the letters to turn into cute little creatures that wiggle and make noises as you drag them. After all the letters are put back in place, a neat animation comes up that shows you exactly what the meaning of the word is. Very neat because not only do children hear what the definition of the word is, they also see an example of what the word means in animation form. Very cool.

Endless Alphabet is definitely a fun learning app for children. Everything about it very cute and the app overall is very well made. Even more surprising that the app is free as I’d pay money to but this app. I love the fact that they introduce new words that usually aren’t learned in other apps I’ve seen. These are words that are bit more difficult but very useful and good for them to add in their vocabulary. Supposedly the app will add even more words and creatures on a weekly bases, but I haven’t used it long enough to see if it does or not. Regardless, this is a very good app that should be downloaded by all parents of young children eager to learn new things.

Endless Alphabet is available now in the App Store for free. It is a universal app and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
