Ratings and Reviews
Major bug in app
There is a major bug in the application, whenever there is a test and there is a spelling which is entered, even though when the spelling is correct the application mentions it is wrong because it sometimes does not start with a capital letter. When the words Are taught in small letters and when answer is in small letter it mentions it is wrong giving the correct spelling starting with a capital letter. This is a severe bug needs to be corrected and also the record in this app of user needs to be corrected.
