What's New in Version 1.1
iOS 7 compatibility
Need qwerty, give correct answer please
Most kids, even at early elementary level, are learning keyboarding. Need qwerty keyboard.
Also, now just tests spelling knowledge but isn't educational unless it actually gives the correct spelling after you miss a word.
On the iPad mini, the letters on the abc order keyboard are smaller than the texting/typing. Hard to hit the right keys.
Should be able to edit a word after it is spelled but can't get the little blue "edit" line to go to that line (tries to copy the whole screen.). If one letter is wrong, I shouldn't have to backspace and delete and then retype the whole word. Need to be able to edit the word.
The alphabetical layout of the letters is a huge handicap because this game is timed, and more time is spent searching for letters than getting to play. This is particularly the case in the higher levels, where students intuitively respond by muscle memory. Leave it to a public school textbook company to make such an illogical error.
