App Upgrade Now Complete - 2015
The following changes have been made;
- image gallery to choose your images for each letter
- the letters c,h,k,p & t are modified as voiceless consonant sounds.
I really appreciated this feedback from a teacher Jenny, who uses the app for her EAL students.
- visual indicator so that the user knows to tap the head or tummy to hear the letter sounds.
- removed the google search option.
The google search option was a little difficult to use and prevented us from having the app listed in the kids section
- the app is now in the kids section
