Rip off

So I spent the 3.99 to get the app and it's a blank screen.

Fun and works well

The app is well done. It's easy for my son to figure out how to use. He enjoys both the word-building exercises and the reading sections. It's very useful for him to be able to tap words he's having difficulty reading, and have the app help him pronounce the word correctly.
