What's New in Version 2.0
- Minor bug fixes and improvements
The new lock for the settings is great! Now, I don't have problems with my kindergarten students changing anything. I love being able to create my own sight word lists. Thank you for the "as entered" choice on upper or lower case letters! Now, I can have cards with students names and other words! Awesome update to a fabulous app! Thank YOU!
Great spelling app
The best spelling app I've found for my students! Much better than Bitsboard.
Thank you for the update. It now works flawlessly on my classroom iPads.
I would like the option to have extra letters (choice of 1-5 extra) to make it a little more challenging, of course with the option to turn it off.
Newest iOS update messed up the sound. The game no longer says the letters as the child spells them. This is happening on the 5 iPad minis & an iPhone 6 with iOS 8.1, so I know it's not my settings. Please fix soon!!
This is by far the best spelling app I've found. And I've not had any issues on the 7 devices I have it installed on.
There is one (more) thing I would like to see in this app. In the near future, I would like to see the option of adding extra letters for choices, making it a bit of a challenge. For example, if the child is to spell the word "them" the letters to spell 'them' would be on the board as well as a few extra. Of course, how many extra letters to add should be up to the parent/teacher.
Thank you for a great app!!
