Okay but could use improvement


Good range of spelling words and level of words.
It would be worth purchasing if a parent had the option to input specific spelling words required by the school each week.
The mini games are exactly the same as meerkat math and I have a kid who likes math better than spelling. Different mini games would make this a more attractive app. However, if u have a kid who loves spelling more than math, then it would be a worthwhile purchase in lieu of the math meerkat.

Great app for spelling. Problem is that I have purchased the upgrade and it will not download. Waste of time when you child has to wait six minutes between games.
