Ratings and Reviews
Not bad. .
I'm not too impressed, especially since I paid for it, but the app isn't terrible. The graphics could be made much cleaner, and the design could be more attractive, but it is a good study tool. If parts of speech and synonyms could be added, this app would be five stars.
Excellent word set for both SAT prep and practical use. I prefer the Flash Card mode for learning the word definitions, although the Hangman mode is pretty fun and a nice way to reinforce spelling.
Excellent study tool
This is a great app for studying for the SAT. Practicing once a day is really easy, so why not be prepared
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
