If you are finding hard to make your toddler read and write bangle- then we have just the perfect app for you. gSlate Bangla, gives your kid a e-slate vibe especially when you hear the exact sound effects of a chalk drawn in a board.  This coolly design apps menu is simple yet eye-catching. The menu of the app is divided in two major segments: write & learn. In both of the segments you can choose either alphabets or numbers.
Clicking to the ‘Write’ segment you can allow your tot to write a particular alphabet or number. The writing is done in a step by step process so that your kids don’t get overwhelmed. There are some options to undo the move or see a demo or even to pronounce out the name. The color of the chalks can be changed as well. A good thing about this app is you can toggle to the ‘learn’ or ‘write’ part after doing any activity.
The learn segment is interesting too. You could hear the alphabet and an associated word with it. Very old school like! The app has some bugs though. For example, you can draw up anything as long as you touch up all the points in the alphabets. Also we found the app to hang quite a few times. And each time you have to restart the entire device. Still we consider it a brilliant initiative from Grameen Intel Social Business Ltd. and hope to see a similar app for English as well.
