Review: Picture ABC
Excellent spelling and recognition app in 4 languages for reading aged children and upwards.

Features of Picture ABC:
This is an excellent app for learning to spell with your child. Set the difficulty level to include many additional letters to choose from or none.
Choose from the common categories of vegetables, vehicles, buildings, food, fruit, animals, zoo, traffic, nature and colour. 16 pictures are displayed inside each category, choose the one you wish to spell. Your child must choose the correct letters from the selection and place them in the correct order.
When you child spells the word correctly an 'owl' appears, collect all 16 owls to win the round. There is a motivational half way point to keep your child focused. There are no repercussion of getting it wrong so your child is learning in a supportive way.
The option of different languages makes this a great app for learning common words in another language for slightly older children: English, French German and Spanish.
What else I love about this app is the ability to personalise it. Using your iPad camera make categories of your own. You can do this with your child as an all round learning experience or for your child. An older child could create a category for a younger sibling as a educational project to enhance their own spelling, creativity and photography skills.
10 out of 10!
Minimal reading - child must be learning to spell.
