Slightly disappointed One of my older daughter's former teachers suggested this app for my younger daughter at a reading clinic. While initially impressed, after downloading I found there were very few words available. I decided to buy ($2.99),on the promise /premise that there would be somewhat ENDLESS words and other types of letter activities. No, the words are limited and aren't of any specific context or subject and scrambled spelling is the only game. In the end my 5 year old likes it.
Love it but wish there were more words. My daughter doesn't understand why it's called "endless" when in reality it ends fairly quickly. I have to say I agree with her. It is an adorable app, but wish there were much more words to keep her vocabulary growing!
A little more support for Android please! Both my son and I love this app, but I fail to understand why iPhones get more words but Android doesn't!? They also got the Reader app MUCH sooner than we did. Do you feel that our kids are less important than those of parents who is iPhones?
Good Effort My daughter loves this but I REALLY wish it reinforced that letters need to go in order from left to right. It could either force doing left to right by locking all but the space that should be next until the letter is placed, then unlocking the next space, or (like another reviewer said) just spell out the word once it has been completed. Also, after reading the reviews, I am so confused about what will be available if I buy the android upgrade. Will I get all 50 words if I buy the upgrade?
Why no love for Android??? Awesome educational game. My 3 yr old loves it but why no endless numbers for Android?
When the little blue guy toots his horn in the intro, my one year-old laughs, every single time. It was worth the money for that alone, but it has really helped us to distract her during a very long stay at the children's hospital. Thank you for all of the work you put into this app! I wish there were more Originator titles for Android.
