Description

As the title suggests, this app is all about the alphabet.  There are 5 sections with all of them giving you the choice of uppercase or lowercase letters:

Know your ABCs – you have a choice of either the letter names or the phonics sound, there is also a play and pause button
ABC Flash Cards – this section the letter name and the word is shown and spoken.  There is an arrow to take you to the next card and another to take you to the previous.
Easy Jumble – you have 5 letters that need to be put into alphabetical order, using drag and drop, as the letter is selected the letter name is mentioned.

Jumble A-Z  – the entire alphabet is presented, where you see how fast you can put the alphabet into the correct order.  There is a help button, which could be helpful for younger ones.
Jumble Challenge – a select of letters starting off with 5, to rearrange them into the correct order.  How many can you do in less than a minute? and  beware of the fish! it bites 10sec off your time limit! (I would love to see a choice of phonics here too)

Wishlist
I would like a ‘click’ option that once the letter is in the correct spot it stays, for those who stubble with fine motor skills

Why did you decide to develop this app?
We develop Alphabet Jumbled with John Dewey’s ECE Philosophy, Learning by Doing in the back of our mind.Learning by Doing which is a very big idea now that many early childhood educators abide by. The way Alphabet Jumbled is designed, is that kids learn by doing, by thinking. that’s what we call a cognitive process. Even in a simple thing like learning ABC, we are designing in such that they go through a thinking process, a cognitive process to learn it, much more than what a ABC song will do for them.

We try to create a new generation of learning aids where kids go through learning by thinking, learning by doing, learning by play. something that books can’t do for them.

When did you first release this app?
I cant’ remember exactly when it was released, but I believe it’s sometime in August 2012
What is your favourite feature?

Jumbled A-Z

Personally, I love Jumbled A-Z. The concept is simple and yet challenging. For adults, it would be challenging to know how quickly you can unjumbled the letters.
How long did it take you to develop this app?
It took approximately 2-3 months to develop Alphabet Jumbled
What age range would this app most suit?
We try to make our apps useful for various ages. For Alphabet Jumbled, Know your ABC and Flash Cards can be useful even for those that are 1-3 years old. Easy jumble would be perfect for those in the kindergartens while Jumble A-Z and jumble Challenge can be used by older kids who have a good grasp on the alphabets.
Are any new updates coming soon?
We are currently not planning any major updates for Alphabet Jumbled. However, minor updates such as bug fixing, if there are any, is always on-going.
Anything important that we should be aware of about this app?
This App doesn’t work on the iPad 1 – the original iPad and the iPhone 3GS
