Full Review:

Fine motor skills need a workout? Try this app for some fun interactive play and muscle building exercise for little fingers. Dexteria has three different games to develop dexterity and strength to get kindergarten hands ready for more fun!

The “Tap it” feature includes different exercises for finger coordination and dexterity with challenging rhythms and patterns. Writing muscles are built through the exciting “Pinch it” game, where you have to squish crabs as they move across the screen and change color and divide to make it even harder! Finally, “Write it” gives tracing practice for kids to learn how to write upper and lowercase letters as well as numbers. All three activities give great positive reinforcement with cheers for best times and fun graphics with great colors.

This app isn't just helpful for kids either! Adults can keep track of children's progress and time spent playing with a report and activity log that can also be e-mailed from within the app itself! Dexteria VPP is also available for $9.99 that can be used with multiple players.
