Confusing At First And Overall Too Easy
The app "Spelling Bee Word Games for Kids" was fun, I guess, but there were no instructions. I would give this app 2 stars. I would give the app 2 stars because, You had to figure it out on your own. When I first played, I didn't know you had to turn the volume up to play the game. So I just guessed on what to write. The voice that told me what the blank word was unclear. I downloaded this app because, it seemed interesting and had an average of 4 stars. The app reviews also made me want to download it. I liked that the app had a voice to tell us what the blank word was. Although I liked the creative idea to do that, I disliked that the voice was unclear. I also disliked how easy it was. Another app I downloaded was "SpellMania" which is much better. It wasn't too hard and wasn't too easy, it was just right. I wouldn't recommend this app to anyone older than 10. To conclude, this app was too easy and wasn't fun.
Parents cannot assess word lists
The app comes with 100 "warm up" words. Additional lists of very easy, easy, medium 1, 2, and 3, and hard 1 and 2 come at $1.99 each. That is pretty pricy and there is no description of the words in the list so I can assess which list is appropriate for my advanced 2nd grade speller.
The warm up words are locked in levels so, again, a parent cannot see the full list without playing all the levels. Doesnt appear to have any performance tracking, or ability to have multiple users. No reward (e.g., virtual stickers or fish). Not sure why they put "game" in the title.
Bottom line: Ok if you have a beginner who is challenged by the warm up words. Then you can follow along buying each list progressively. It is not for me as we have passed the early words.
Too easy and confusing at first
I was looking for an app to help me with 6th grade language arts. I downloaded this app because the reviews were mostly good and I thought it would help improve my spelling. But after exploring the app a bit I found that it was not helpful at all. First of all, it never told you that it read the sentence for the first three words that I did I just guessed what word filled in the blank. Also, the words were MUCH too easy. For example, they had words like "and" "bag" and "desk" the only thing I liked about the app was when I didn't know you were supposed to listen to the sentence and I got to guess the words. I did not like how easy the words were. Finally, compared to the app "Spell Mania" it was much too easy and a little confusing.
