Makes practicing our words less stressful! We've used it the last couple years, I have one that's used it 4th-6th grade and one has used it preschool- 1st grade. I'm proud to say we get 100% right every week on our spelling test! I load their words and make sentences over the weekend then EVERY time we are in the car I pass them my phone and they practice. I love I can check their progress to see if they are getting it or struggling! I highly recommend this app!

My son is enjoying learning his spellings with this app. It's easy to set up new tests and good to see which words he is struggling with. One thing that is really annoying is that we are using the app on a chrome book, not a tablet, and the in-built key board isn't supported. So he has to use the mouse pad to click on the letters on the keyboard on the screen. If you could add support for using the actual key board then that would be great.

Great app. It's really easy to configure new tests and the downloadable ones are very useful. Most importantly, both kids (8 & 5) really like it. Only minor complaint is that the that some of the pre-recorded words on the downloadable tests can be slightly unclear and would benefit from an example of usage.

Hi Richard. Thanks for your positive review and for giving your feedback. We are in the process of re-recording the downloadable tests to bring the quality of some of the older ones in line with the newer tests. You can, if you wish, in the meantime, re-record any you want to add usage examples to. Thanks, Ian - info@keystagefun.co.uk
