What's New in Version 1.19.10
minor bug fixes and image update
I tutor, and straight grammar can be boring. This app brings it all together and makes a delightful game of parts of speech. My two boys fought over the iPad for an hour trying to beat each other's score. The step-by-step progression, the timed and untimed options, and the variety of sentence structure makes for good teaching. It helps to have memorized the auxiliary verbs and to have some experience with the parts of speech before playing. They got to level six, but stayed at level five trying to improve their scores. They knew they needed to get better at the concept of adverb before advancing. Better that they decide that than I.
Good but has 2 big flaws
The topics and level of explanation is high. But the way the content is provided through the App is average. There are 2 main problems: 1) the app is ridiculously slow in loading itself. I have iPhone 5s. It is a general problem caused even if I use high speed wifi / LTE connection - although the loading shouldn't be affected by access speed - and / or have episodes already downloaded to the App.
2) each episode contains high amount of embedded marketing and commercials content
