Developer Description

This app allows users to learn about and write acrostic poems, a poetry form that uses the letters in a word to begin each line of the poem. All lines of the poem relate to or describe the main topic word.

This educational tool allows users to first brainstorm words to help write their poem. Work can be saved in progress to revise and edit, which reinforces elements of the writing process.

Users can send their finished poem to their device’s camera roll or email it as a .pdf file to friends and family.

Created with classroom use in mind, this tool allows users to create their own profile to store their work, making device sharing easier for students in classes which do not have 1-to-1 tablet availability.

This app mirrors our popular acrostic poem web-based interactive, so users familiar with one can easily adapt to the other. In fact, the two are so similar that users can send their editable .rwt files to an email address and then open their acrostic poem right in the online tool!
