App of the week: 'Drawnimal' helps kids learn drawing and alphabeton April 23, 2013 @ 1:28 pm (Updated: 2:19 pm - 4/23/13 )
"You put it in the middle of a pad of paper and the app shows you where to draw," Bishop explains. "For example, you draw a tail away from the tablet or phone and little ears on top, and then in the middle on the screen is the actual face of the animal and once you're done drawing, it actually animates the animal's face."
The makers of the app, available for iPhone and iPad, say it "motivates the children to draw around the device and encourages them to think outside of the box."
They say the funny animations also help motivate kids to learn the alphabet quickly by making it fun.
While Drawnimal is free, it'll cost you $1.99 to add the alphabet. It's also available in a number of foreign languages, including English, Spanish, French and German. Drawnimal is available only for iOS.
