Another winner

There are so many edu apps in the App Store that it's hard to get excited for them any more. I have started judging them by whether or not my kids like them. I had to take my son to the doctor the other day. While waiting for the doctor to come in I noticed that he was playing Mystery Word town. He had even typed in his own set of words to spell. He was choosing to play a spelling game without being forced to play. That tells me that this app is not only good but great! It's easy to set up & customizable.

Great tech support!

I had not enabled my iPhone microphone for Mystery Word Town and so I went to the website and left a message. I was bummed because I couldn't use the app I had just purchased to study spelling words with my son. Matthew K. Responded to me almost immediately to help troubleshoot. He asked one question and diagnosed the problem. I was up and running after one quick setting fix. The game is great, my son loves it and The tech support response is AMAZING! I may have to purchase the math game now!

Best word app ever

This is an amazing word game for all ages. Great word ranges for different levels. We can try and guess the word or listen to the word then try and spell it. Mother of two, and I can't stop playing with the youngest. He is learning how to read and what a fun way to do so. This is a great app for additional extra curriculum activity, along with its sister app Mystery Math Town. The developer has done great in the educational apps department and I can't wait to see what they do next
