***** 5 Stars - Nice app for practicing inference. Tons of examples.

Inference Ace is targeted to children in Grades 2-5 who can read the words (decode), but don't understand what they read.
With over 450 examples, a fun and engaging reward center to increase motivation, and content designed by professional teachers and researchers, this app is bound to capture the attention of your kids.
Best of all, there is detailed reporting for up to 10 students to meet the needs of teachers, therapists and parents.
- Incremental learning. New levels are unlocked only when your child is ready.
- Guided learning for less frustration. Your child will always be guided to the correct answer.
- Fun and engaging Reward Center to increase motivation.
- Contains over 450 examples, with content designed by professional teachers and researchers.
- Inferences are taught from multiple perspectives: what inferences are possible, which are not possible, multiple inferences per sentence, etc.
- Our own Smart Sentence technology is used to infinitely vary the examples to prevent learning by rote.
- Advanced levels include timers to ensure fluency. Research shows fluency in the foundation skills is critical to reading comprehension.
Our apps are designed for and tested by typical and special needs children. Testers include children with Autism and other special needs. Our apps work for them!
This version of the Inference Ace app has access to all levels for up to 10 players.

Inferencing is a key component of reading comprehension. If you can't infer fluently, you can't understand the story. Help your child now by getting started with our Inference Ace app.
While you're at it, check out our other apps that target WH questions, identifying inference clues and identifying the main idea of a sentence or paragraph.
We take customer service very seriously! If you ever have a problem or find that we've missed something, contact us at our website and we will do our best to fix the problem.
** Note: Inference Ace and Inference Clues intentionally use similar data sets. However, different skills are targeted.
Also, when working through this app, you will encounter different variants of the same examples many times as we teach our players to derive multiple inferences from a single sentence -- just like expert readers do. This is an intentional feature, not a bug :-)
What's New in Version 2.2
Sorted out a pesky bug on the Select Level screen... everything is now good to go!
This the app I have been searching for! Finally, an app that addresses reading comprehension skills of inferencing specifically. Now I can focus on this skill with my students, and this app has everything I need. It tracks progress, multiple levels and fun motivating games. Love it!
I have been looking for an app like this for my son, he has always had a comprehension problem and this seems like it is really going to help. He already seems to like using the app. Its easy to use and understand.
Easy to use
I really like how this app allows kids to think about what they are reading and dig a bit further into what is happening. The app is easy to use and offers many levels.
