Needs a setting for speed control The voice says the words so fast they're hardly discernible. Maybe add a record function, so parents or users can record the words themselves, or setting control for the speed of the voice, or options for an alternate voice But I was really impressed with the options thus far that I haven't found with any other spelling test app, paid or free, and all the more impressive because this app Is free, like multiple player profiles, the automatic advancing term/unit/week lists, the ease with which the custom lists can be created Good effort, some tweaks would improve user experience Maybe add additional games or test methods (e.g. missing letters, sort of hangman style, put mixed-up letters in correct order, insert lists into a word search or crossword or a creator to make them, pick the correct word from 3 or 4 choices, etc.)
New dictionary without swear words! Thank you, thank you for fixing this. Now it looks like a great app! Very easy to add words by grade. Can't wait for my daughter to try it.
Not working right At first my daughter was loving this app. But recently it has not worked right. It will tell her she misspelled words when she didn't and it is also repeating the same word when it should be going to the next word.
Grandson Loves it Not bad for free. I wish there were more games. Wish I could password protect the list, 7 year-old figured out how to edit it the second time he used the app. I found the grade level a bit confusing at first. Set up his first test & accidentally left it as Kindergarten. He wasn't too happy about that. Maybe you could make a simplified version with less options? It's cool that you can get your list from Spelling City, but I don't know if I will ever use that feature. Love the definitions from Wordsmyth. Just figured out that I could change the level for definitions (beginner/intermediate/advanced) LOVE that I don't have to tell it how to pronounce the words. Two other apps I tried require a recording & my microphone records my voice like it's in the next room.
Good ideas, poor execution Forces landscape mode, even on phones. Pop up menus obscure controls. Design language is highly confusing and non-intuitive. Ugly interface. Don't get me wrong, the actual exercises are guided by strong principles of education, and if your child can fight through the UI, he /she can use this to tool to improve their spelling.
Great! This is game is nice for my kids... love it! We played this both for fun and for his study.
