First of all, make sure it will work on your device. 4 tablets in our house and it only works on one. I don't know about everyone else but this homeschool mama doesn't have money to buy all the kids new tablets so they can have this app. The concept is great. I like that we won't run out of letters if we want to build multiple words. It's nice that we don't have to worry about losing tiles and with one swipe all the letters are back where they need to be! And so portable if we want to take it on the go. There are things that would make this app great. The first you have already somewhat fixed--making words easier to divide (for me. It's still hard for my 10 year old. He has epilepsy and can only use one hand and it's hard to divide words with one hand.). But it would be nice if there was an easier way to put the syllables back together to make the big word without moving each individual tile again. And it would be awesome if there was a way for the app to read the words or individual syllables. I know this isn't a crazy concept--leapfrog can do it with their fridge phonics word builder toy. Overall, the app is okay. I don't think it was worth paying the sale price of $15.
The bugs have been fixed! Tiles are larger, so easier for my child to grab, they now move around with ease and syllables also now divide without any problem. This is a great add-on to the curriculum and great for doing our lessons on the go. Loved the concept of the big magnet board, but it just seemed like the natural progression to move to the tablet and now the app has all the same capabilities. Thank you!!
I can't divide the syllables on my 7" screen. :( Will this be fixed?
Love the idea of the app instead of trying to keep our magnetic tiles organized. We are also having difficulty with tiles getting stuck and it is difficult to divide the words into syllables. I am hoping they can get this fixed. We are using a 9.6" tablet. Also wish there was a way to sound out the words that are built instead of each letter sound.
I'm not sure why this is available via the Google Play Store if it can't be used on my device. I bought it for my Samsung S7 phone and it won't open. It just keeps saying it doesn't support the current screen size setting and closing. I'll happily revisit the app and my opinion on it once it is updated and I can try it.
It's a convenient app, for when we don't have space to put up the whiteboard, but some of the features are a little difficult to use. The separation of syllables, for one, is extremely difficult to use. That may be due to my tablet, though.
