Grammaropolis is where grammar lives! Hailed as a Schoolhouse Rock for the 21st Century, Grammaropolis uses the parts of speech as animated characters whose personalities are based on the roles they play in the sentence. From the shady pronoun always trying to take the noun’s place to the motherly conjunction who just wants everyone to get along, Grammaropolis achieves the seemingly impossible: we make learning grammar fun!
Your free download includes access to the Noun neighborhood. Let Nelson the noun lead you with a curriculum map that includes a song, a book, videos, and over 400 quiz questions. Follow the map to earn your badge!
Upgrade with In-App Purchases at any time for access to the other seven parts of speech:
Our innovative, classroom-proven approach blends character-based content with traditional quiz-based assessment and is designed to address students' varied learning styles. Because the parts of speech are personified based on their roles in the sentence, the characterization provides students with a more effective way to visualize and internalize the roles of the parts of speech and to identify how a sentence is put together.
Grammaropolis was created and refined in the ultimate proving grounds: the classroom.

What's New in Version 1.2.5
New and improved sounds for you to enjoy!
This app looked so promising, and I was hoping to purchase the complete app bundle for grammar and punctuation because it "seems" like it would fall under my daughter's learning type, but I can't know for sure because despite the app showing the sound is on, my iPad's sound being fully turned up, every other sound-making app on my iPad working, this app refuses to play any sound. How can I know if the app will work and become a good addition to my daughter curriculum, if I can't hear a thing? I've even deleted it and went back to the App Store to get it again, but no luck. It refuses to play sound. I won't purchase the bundle without being positive it will play sound because that would be a big waste of money. Fix your app, please!
And now as I look at the ratings, other people face the same sound issues. I have an iPad Air, but I can't imagine what kind of development problem the app could have to not be sound be compatible. I also checked out the updates for this app, the most recent update is Nov2015. So i guess it's safe to assume that there will not be any changed made to fix these issues. What a total bummer. This app looked so promising.
I read another review that said the same thing. I thought surely they must not know how to work the app. Nope, it's the app! Glad I tried the free version first!
Sound does not work. Please fix it.
