Lots of Learning!
MiniMod, Reading for Details is a wonderful educational app! I've been using it with my students and they are immediately drawn into the reading passages as the visual always grabs their attention and the short 100 word passage keeps them engaged right through to the questioning. They love the bingo component! Designed with three levels of difficulty this app has reading levels starting with a 2.5 and going up to a 5th grade level. Especially great for the struggling, reluctant, ESL learners....
Great app ...but....
This is a wonderful app! Just what I was looking for, except that when you exit app to take a phone call or check the time, the story that was just read does not save.. You have to start all over..;) also after reading a story, it only asks one question them moves on. So you have to read a lot of of stories to answer one question each that counts towards a " bingo number" if you were to read 4 stories and got close to winning a bingo but had to leave the app for a second, you have to start ALL over again..:(
Too few essays and same questions
Due very few passages and only one question for each passage, this app is almost one time (few times) use app. Later it's almost instant guess without reading the description. At least they should have different questions , to make more combinations. Bottom line too less options for the money.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
