How it works • in english
On the welcome screen music is heard. With a finger swipe, the user advances to the picture for the letter “A” – as in anaconda. The image of the animal fills the screen.
The name of the animal and the relevant letter are pronounced, harmonising smoothly with the colour drawings.
By tapping twice on the screen, the user causes the animal to turn around. The upper and lower case versions of the letter are shown. Numbered arrows indicate the sequence and direction of strokes required to form the letter. The guided application accepts only the correct sequence. When the letters are written correctly, they turn green. The card then flips over and the depicted animal becomes animated and loudly produces its natural sound, followed by a sequence of the related song.

Because children enjoy seeing the animal in action repeatedly, they playfully learn the letters of the alphabet. "Xenegugeli" is not only a wonderful multi-media learning tool for young children, it is also a lovingly rendered presentation of the animal kingdom in image, animal sound and song.
At the end of the tour, the impressum appears. here the songs and e-books including the lyrics are available for purchase in 4 languages through a link to the iTunes-Shop.

German ABC and Schwyzerdütsch


Comment ça marche • en français icon_F
Le jeu commence par la mélodie du Xenegugeli. Quand on passe son doigt sur le dessin d’un animal, on entend la prononciation de la première lettre et du nom de l’animal.
En touchant deux fois le dessin de l’animal, on arrive à l’exercice d’écriture. Il consiste à écrire correctement la lettre en majuscule et en minuscule avec le doigt, pour que l’animal s’anime et fasse du bruit. On entend alors un extrait de la chanson dans la même langue.

Como el ABC funciona • en español icon_ESP
Al principio podrás escuchar la melodía del Xenegugeli. Cuando hagas clic en la imagen con los animales, pronuncia las letras. Pinchando dos veces más en el cuadro con el animal, llegarás al ejercicio escrito. Si anotas correctamente las letras minúsculas y mayúsculas con el dedo, el animal tomará vida y oirás su sonido. Tambíen podrás disfrutar de un fragmento de la canción sobre dicho animal en el idioma correspondiente.

Are you a good Dino Xenegoogeli observer?
Join the club.

You need patience, because dinos are very shy. Its best loved place is the remote Swiss woods. Dino Xenegoogeli loves warmth. Wintertime it passes sleeping in bear caverns or on mossy banks.
Go singing through the forest and your chances will be great, because Xenegugeli is very attracted by children's voices.
Dino Xenegoogeli loves eating maple or cloverleaves. Pine roots and honey for desert.
Because the Xenegugeli is at peace with himself, it does not look for company with humans. It prefers scratching his back on a tree.
If you read all this and did like it: be welcome in the Club! The Xenegoogeli feeling will very soon show up. This strange inner happiness when everything is smiling at you. If you meet someone being sad and lonely. Tell him of our search for the dino, invite him to our club. Or just sing him the Xenegoogeli song. Or ask him: «Did you xenegoogle today?»

A marvelous combination of great narrative and excellent animations makes this educational app one that every parent should own. iphoneapprewiev • 4.5 stars

The sounds and music are great for creating mental associations whilst learning the letters. What is great too is that besides the lite version you can also download it in four other languages.
So that you can introduce the concept of a foreign language from early on.
