This is an application that helps your child learn the most frequently used English words without sounding the words out letter by letter. The game is simple, utilizing touch screen operations, colorful and comical graphics to persuade your child to play and learn.
In Flash Card mode, the user can see the word. If quiz mode is on then user will not hear the word until they tap on the word. The user can see the next word on the list by either tapping on the "next" button or swiping the screen.
In Word Challenge mode, the user has to select one of the four displayed words that match the word that they hear. Each time the user selects the correct answer, a new body part will be added to the character outline. If the user selects the wrong answer three times, the game will end. If the user selects the wrong answer, the word will automatically be added to Word Challenge Tricky Words list which is available from the Custom List selection screen. The word will be removed from the Tricky Word list when the user selects the correct answer when they encounter the word again. Once the game is completed successfully a next list will be unlocked. The first time the user completes the list without selecting a word wrong; they will be awarded with that list’s trophy in black and white.
In Spelling mode, the user has to spell the word that they hear by using the keyboard. The game will end after three incorrect spellings. When the word is selected incorrectly, it will automatically be added to the Spelling Tricky Word(s) list which is available from the Custom List selection screen. The word will be removed from the Tricky Word(s) list when the user selects the correct answer when they encounter the word again. Once the game is completed successfully the next available list will be unlocked. The first time the user completes the list without getting a word wrong, they will be awarded with that list’s trophy sticker in full color.

Ratings and Reviews
Three dollar for tons of bugs
I like the layout and function of this app. The music is obnoxious, but luckily only on the front part of the app. I bought the app to make lists with spelling words for my sons school. We have had it for maybe two days, and already it has crashed multiple times, locking up when we’re trying to save a word, and it also falsely ascribed all the wrong words to the wrong audio clips.. half an hour of my sons typing and recording in vain. Definitely not good enough for a three dollar app
Don’t waste your money
I purchased this app to be able to record my son’s school spelling lists. It was only able to record two words and then I ran into a bug where I could not record additional words plus there is no edit function to return to a list you started. So disappointed by the misleading reviews out there on this app! Don’t waste your time or money!! This app is rated zero stars, however, that is not an option.
Developer Response ,
Hi there. I am sorry that you run into issues with recording. Please send us email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your issue and we will try out best to help you. You can return to the previously created list by going clicking on the setting icon at the home screen and selecting the "View Custom Lists". From there you can select any of your custom list and able to add and remove words and also re-record your custom words. Looking forward to hearing back from you. SoGaBee.
Worth every penny!
This app is awesome! It includes 19 word lists and the ability to make your own lists! There are 3 different activities to work on sight words! (flash cards, word challenge, and spelling). You can select easy or hard (easy has less similar words/hard has words that begin with the same letter). The word challenge game is really fun, a sight word is spoken and the child has to touch the correct word out of 4 choices. After they select the correct word a piece of a cute character is built. They keep going until they complete their character (kids really love this!). This app keeps track of accuracy and motivates the child with a trophy room! Input your own sight words that go with your curriculum (or child's spelling lists!) A lot of content for a low price! You can use this app for a long time, add new sight words often!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
