Designed by a team of experienced lead teachers and senior practitioners, the Twinkl Formation & Handwriting App allows learners to practise and improve the formation of English alphabet letters, numbers, words and common shapes.
The app requires an Apple (iPhone/iPad) device running a supported iOS version. You will not be able to install this app on an unsupported device. Please see our General App Information category content for more information on supported device and software and updating your device software.
The performance of this app will vary depending upon the performance of your device, so we recommend using a modern device for the best experience. Use the Try! mode to test performance, if unsure.
There are a number of ways to access the Twinkl Formation & Handwriting App, according to your preference, these are as follows:
Try! Mode - Free, no obligation, access to a number of formation exercises.
The Twinkl Formation & Handwriting App features a Try! mode which allows free access to a number of formation exercises.
Use this mode with absolutely no obligation and to evaluate if full app access is right for you, either as a Twinkl member, or via a simple in-app purchase.
To access Try! mode, simply tap 'Try!' at the top right of the login screen.
Twinkl Membership Login - Free, full, access for all existing and new members with an active paid-for Twinkl membership!
As a Twinkl member with an active membership, access to the Twinkl Formation & Handwriting App (and many of our other apps) is completely free for any supported devices that you personally own.
After downloading, just open the app and log in with your Twinkl account details and enjoy full app functionality as part of your membership.
Your device will need internet connectivity when you first log in and after this, as long as the device can connect on a semi-regular basis to verify your active subscription status, you shouldn't need to log in again. Our Twinkl Apps are specifically designed with offline use in mind, and you can use this app in or out of the classroom with confidence.
A Twinkl account with a paid membership is a great value way to get access to all of our paid-for apps for one low price - plus, access to our website resources and tools too!
In-App Purchase - Purchase full app access for all supported devices linked to your Apple/Google Play account.
