    This is one of the best kids apps there is. Out little one love that he can hear us say the word then tried to spell it. Words are easy to add and the rewards he gets for doing well really motivate him.

    We have various devices and there's no way of transfering test from the tablet onto my phone. You have to load the app and start again. Not good.

    We love this app and enjoyed it very much when we first installed. It has been helpful to my daughter with her spelling. Unfortunately, about 2 weeks ago it began to shut down the app while she is in the middle of her weekly spelling words. I thought maybe the word lists were too big, so I started making them smaller. I thought maybe too much memory in the app was being used, so I deleted old test

    Cute animation and set up. But can there PLEASE be an option to get rid of the two second word flash? For kid words, two seconds is all it takes for kids to see how to spell a word, making this app useless. The audio option is wonderful, why can't the test be just the audio? Until that's fixed this app is a complete waste.
