PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – On today’s APP-tastic and outta SITE – Handwriting Without Tears.

Got a kid learning their letters and numbers? Handwriting Without Tears, a system used in schools around the country, has come up with an app that can make things a lot easier.

In essence, it turns your iPad into a chalkboard, letting kids get used to the shapes of capital letters and numbers. One note on this one: You’ll need at least an iPad 2 to run it. It won’t work on first generation systems.

Check out the Handwriting Without Tears app.
