- Skipped and repeated letters ("probley" > "probably")

Spell Better will take this sentence:

> I throwed the dall to my cuzin and wnt imside to ahve a peace ofcake.

And correct it to:

> I threw the ball to my cousin and went inside to have a piece of cake.

And it'll do most of the corrections dynamically, as the sentence is being typed.


"Multiple students of mine are now requesting that I bring my iPad to class so they can use this app to complete all of their assignments. These students are generally disengaged and tend to avoid all work requiring them to write/ organize their thoughts and it is so exciting to see how much their enthusiasm increases when given supports such as SpellBetter."

"We did have a chance to try Spell Better and love it! The update came out just in time for our full day iPads in Special Education training we gave yesterday so that we were able to let others know about what a great app it is for word prediction. "

"This is brilliant for my dyslexic pupils and others who struggle to write. It's really useful for homework, too. Great communications with Nanavit [sic] have ironed out my inadequate ability with any ICT! A superb App, thank you!"

Essential writing app

Can't praise this free app enough. Well done, you have thought of everything even different accents and use of colour. Great for all ages and abilities.
Who needs Clicker when you have this?

very disappointing

I bought the Premium version of it and I am really disappointed. It keeps closing the app unexpectedly in the middle of my typing and when I re-open the app again it has lost half of my text I've typed! It is not very helpful especially, when you are in a rush to type your notes!Do not buy.

Simpler brilliant

I had this app added to my 10 year old sons iPad and paid the £6.99 for the upgrade. He has dyslexia and really really struggles with his written work, so much so that at school he has a scribe to help him. I too, am dyslexic so homework can be a real battle field. The first bit of work he did using this app was just amazing, and the app was so easy to use. The teachers were so impressed with his work they asked if he was able to bring in the iPad and now he does all his school written work on it, it really has made such a difference for him and now at last he is able to work independently. Thank you.
