Birdie seems to cycle through iPad/iPhone apps much like she cycles through toys: rapidly. Most new toys and apps have an obsessed life-span of 2 days. Then they are replaced with something else. But, there are a few apps that she returns to with surprising regularity – and for lengthly amounts of time too. Endless Alphabet is one of them.
My favorite bit of Endless Alphabet is not the kooky anthropomorphized monster letters, or the unusual word choices (bellows?!) and the resulting animated definitions, or the gorgeous color palette. My favorite bit is the fact that this is the only app that makes Birdie laugh out loud – with her head thrown back, and her eyes closed at the hilarity of it all. I consider that pretty priceless. I suppose the fact that she’s also learning her alphabet and increasing her vocabulary is ok too.
