Ratings and Reviews
Good, but could be improved
I purchased this app for my oldest because my younger son is using it at school. In this version there is no avatar for them to create or improve, the more honey they gain; so no reason to keep playing the game. Also as a parent you cannot see a history of their scores. The child can take a screen shot of their score which is time stamped, but it doesn't say what level they were playing! I am a bit disappointed.
App doesn’t work.
This app was needed for my sons homework. I purchased in good faith, it does not work properly. At first it would give a word to spell, without the correct letter options to spell it, on the beekeeper option of his spelling list it repeats the same 4 or 5 words and does not ask for the full 10 words. This ,priming it had an update option, which I thought would have fixed those problems.. but it now constantly close the app mid spelling test. Very unhappy.
A fun way to learn your weekly spellings
My kids have loved playing this game. I put in their spelling words for the week and off they go. A good tip is later in the week I create a smaller spelling list if the words they have struggled with and they just play with those. My kids scores have improved loads.
