Ratings and Reviews



Great game. I had this years ago but I wasn't bombarded with ads like the current version. Ads play for 20-30seconds every minute or two... and you cannot skip them, you have to wait for them to play out. Delete!!

On the right track


This is an enjoyable game overall, which gives us grammar and spelling nerds something to think about. However, there are a few issues which need to be addressed.
Firstly, the game is buggy. When accidentally clicking on an iAd, one can no longer input anything until the round is up. This has caused be much frustration. Further, the game clearly states that the goal is a C+ average or below is the goal, yet any grade higher than a C results in an Incomplete.
Secondly, there are some questionable grammar and spelling decisions. British English spelling is marked as an error, which can be difficult, considering that many markets use this spelling. There are a few mistakes/inconsistencies in capitalisation which were not identified by the developers and result in penalties for the players.
And finally, the game needs different difficulty levels. The marking time is just too short for many of the levels. Marking the same essay 20 times does not sound appealing.

Great editing game


Am using this with my 9 yr old daughter. I downloaded the free version, and liked it enough to upgrade to the paid version for the "practice" feature. Suggestions for improvement : allow UK spelling as that is what most of the English speaking world uses (bar America); more time to complete the task; more time to review the marking process at the end that shows all the mistakes; elementary/middle/high school setting options for younger children. Many of the texts are really too hard for my daughter but she can still do the spelling for the easier words. It would be better if there was an option that was the right level for her. Also, why not some creative writing texts to mark?
