We haven't reviewed it yet, but checking it out for this post I think it's a strong 4+ stars, even at its usual price of $2.99...but right now it's free for a limited time!
Each letter of the alphabet has it's own song, including an animal playing an instrument that both match the letter: "Freida the frog plays the flute!" Terrific stuff...and there are areas for exploring and playing music with the ABCs, exploring the animals, and the traditional ABC Song.
This app rocks! There are no in-apps or ads and it works on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. (Download links below.)
** Please note ** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. **
