My daughter loves all four of the Doodle apps, but Doodle Spell has been a bit disappointing since the update. In particular, the section where they have to trace words is very glitchy. We've tried it on my mobile and laptop, but it's still the same. It's very frustrating for her and it upsets her as it affects her accuracy. It would be great if this could be looked into!

Doesn't work very well on android as it lags or doesn't load at all and when it does eventually work and it gives you the key board to type, the button to say you are done should be separate from the key board so you don't accidently press it when you are trying to delete something or add a space between words. This is the same for Doodle english as well.
