What's New in Version 1.01
-Added setting to turn the game mode on/off
-Added setting to turn the star field on/off
-Increased the size of the keys on the keyboard
-Minor Bug Fixes
My 1st grade boy enjoys practicing his spelling words with this app. It's perfect for creating your own spelling practice for the words your child brings home from school. He gets excited about earning "asteroids" and bombing the alien ships. It's worth the price and I am very satisfied with the purchase. My wish list: a sound (not just graphic) when word is spelled correctly, ability to share tests across devices, lower case letters on keypad, and some diversity in the game as I believe at some point (soon) he will start losing interest in the game part. Another big wishlist item - a flashcard study mode. It would also be nice to be able to copy and combine lists, and also to edit - for example, I made a list but gave it the wrong title. I couldn't edit the title, the only option was to delete the entire list and start over.
Great app for customized spelling lists
I was looking for an app where I could put in my son's spelling list to make practicing more fun. I love that after so many right answers they get to play a little game, however, I wish that game was a little more challenging. Maybe a continuation so they want to spell more words to play a little more. It could also be a little longer so they feel more like they are playing then studying. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the keyboard. It is very small and the "done" button is too close to the letters. My son will try to type a "b" and accidentally hit the done button and it'll so he spelled it wrong. Overall, it's worth the money and he likes it better than quizzing him.
Cute game but bad keyboard!
This is a cute game. I purchased it to add variety to my 1st grade twin boys' spelling test practice. The only compliant I have is that when the children type in the words, the keyboard that this game gives you to use is all in capital letters. It should be in lowercase for elementary students using this app. I know for my boys is is confusing. Once they type the letter, it appears as a lowercase on the screen. Even more confusing. Please change this!! :)
