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.
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.
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.
Excellent game but... The second time that I tried to install it,it says that the package file is invalid. I would give it 5 stars if there was no package file wasn't needed for this game.
My 6 year old hates spelling, reading, anything to do with English. She got 100% on her last spelling test and even spelled patriotic! LOVE this app
Unusable on Nexus 9 The "next" button that one is supposed to press is missing/invisible on the Nexus 9. App needs to adapt to screen geometry better!
