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?
I like the concept. However, it would be improved if you had the option of untimed games. I feel like I'm being tested far more on speed than thoroughness.
Also, working with American spelling is slowing me down.
I'm an English teacher and will be recommending this useful app to my students! Only criticism, a little too fast at the end to take in the learning opportunities.
