What's New in Version 1.1
- minor bug fixed
Great idea, but...
The interface is a little too challenging for the intended audience. My almost eight year old could assemble the sentences without any problem, but about 1/4 of the time when she would try to drag a word into place it would bounce back to the wheel and she would have to try again. If she could just tap the word to have it go into the next slot, that would be great (even if it was only an option in a parent configuration menu). Also, it would be nice if she could rearrange the words before she chose "OK". Otherwise, if she knew she made a mistake, the only option was to choose "OK" and let it send the words back out so she could select them in order again. If these changes were made, or even if they were only options in a parent setup menu, I would give this app 5 stars for sure.
Exactly What I Was Looking For
I wanted a way for them to put sentences together without having them writing (they needed a break). This app was a nice way for me not to have to make tons of flash cards. The children caught onto it real quick and were able to move the words to make sentences.
The only things I would change is the slight delay between the next sentence (I see a second got added for the delay). There is no way to move the words when all of the words are in the blue boxes. And as far as I can tell the hint does nothing.
Overall, a great learning game with fun pictures.
Edit:: My bad, the game works much better with the sound on ☺ and the hints fill in words for you at the expense of coins.
I love this app for use with my language kids but I wish it wasn't timed and the interface is a little difficult for the students to use independently. If it wasn't for that, it would definitely be a 5 star app!
