Ratings and Reviews
THAT FRICKEN KEYBOARD
I used to love this app but however, I find that it’s kinda rigged because of two reasons.
1. An in-game currency “coins” encourages children to learn as children have to earn coins to buy clothes for their characters through doing spelling tasks. They can earn 10-50 (or rarely 300 by a treasure chest which has a 1/16 chance)after scoring 100% in a task. However, the arcade part of the game is the problem. After you spend 10 coins to play a game, you can finish it. The game only takes a few minutes to complete and after you finish the game..... YOU GET 600 COINS. 600! This means children would do the games rather the tasks, which defeats the whole purpose.
2. THE KEYBOARD.
The keyboard is IMPOSSIBLE to use. It’s glitchy, it’s slow, it’s everything you would describe a bad keyboard. In spelling tasks, is not that bad since it’s only a single word. However, when it comes to writing sentences...... hell breaks loose. You have to do one letter at a time, since the letters doesn’t show when you press the keyboard. I know this isn’t because of my old iPad, since everyone in our class is complaining. Please, please let students use the normal keyboard with no autocorrect to avoid bad reviews and a terrible time for students.
Bad, but still okay.
Well, I’ve been using this app for a long time, but it is not that good. When ever you get a prize wheel, most of the time you would get 5 credits. I have complained about this issue to Literacy Planet Help Support, but they didn’t help much.
Yes, I know I already said why it is not good, and now I am going to say it is okay. Firstly, most of the kids in my school enjoy doing stuff like work, or games, so they always try to get them all correct. (they do that because thay want to get stuff on the prize wheel.(SUPER greedy, they are.))
Secondly, why I like it is because you can earn redeemable credits and have your own profile; you can also earn badges!
You can also play games on this app that will give you more credits and points (this app also has redeemable points,). You can only do these on a computer, but don’t panic if you don’t have acess to one, or if you don’t have one. There are 2 games: Word Mania (which you can download now with your login) & Donkey Dash.
So mostly, this app has a lot of glitches, but if you do it on the computer, it will be perfectly fine.
And in conclusion, I think it is better on the computer than on a Ipad. I give it 3 stars!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️
I use this in school and it is great but plz fix this bug for the prize wheel since when you get 5 coins you only get 4 and when you get 10 you only get 9 and when you 50 you only get 40 plz fix this bug but and remove dictation plz it way to hard and remove word finder plz but it’s a great app for learning
