This is an application that helps your child learn the most frequently used English words without sounding the words out letter by letter. The game is simple, utilizing touch screen operations, colorful and comical graphics to persuade your child to play and learn.
In Flash Card mode, the user can see the word. If quiz mode is on then user will not hear the word until they tap on the word. The user can see the next word on the list by either tapping on the "next" button or swiping the screen.
In Word Challenge mode, the user has to select one of the four displayed words that match the word that they hear. Each time the user selects the correct answer, a new body part will be added to the character outline. If the user selects the wrong answer three times, the game will end. If the user selects the wrong answer, the word will automatically be added to Word Challenge Tricky Words list which is available from the Custom List selection screen. The word will be removed from the Tricky Word list when the user selects the correct answer when they encounter the word again. Once the game is completed successfully a next list will be unlocked. The first time the user completes the list without selecting a word wrong; they will be awarded with that list’s trophy in black and white.
In Spelling mode, the user has to spell the word that they hear by using the keyboard. The game will end after three incorrect spellings. When the word is selected incorrectly, it will automatically be added to the Spelling Tricky Word(s) list which is available from the Custom List selection screen. The word will be removed from the Tricky Word(s) list when the user selects the correct answer when they encounter the word again. Once the game is completed successfully the next available list will be unlocked. The first time the user completes the list without getting a word wrong, they will be awarded with that list’s trophy sticker in full color.

This has been by far the best app I have used to help my child learn and study her spelling lists from school. I utilize the customize option that allows me to create my own list and record my own audio for each word. In two days of my child using this app; flash cards, word challenge and spelling, she has already memorized her spelling words. I found this effective and extremely helpful. Not many apps allow you to create your own list and especially give more activities other than to use as flash cards. I am happy and thrilled we found an app that allows customization and several learning options. Thank you for a wonderful product!
Great App For My Kids
The great part about this app is I have no guilt about my kids playing it. It is an educational app that they love playing, but the real key is they are learning something. Oh and my daughter loves the cute character.
Cute but useless
The graphics on this app are adorable, but there are mispronunciations and other problems. The most annoying is that the word “off” is pronounced “of” in the app. Even worse, there is no way to customize and fix the problem.
