Sorry I wasted my money on this


The story suggestions/prompts consist of maybe 5 general ideas over and over using different names and subject matter...but hey re all the same basic premise. What a waste! I want a refund...

Wretched snake oil of an app


It basically repeats the same few lines over and over on a different background. No more late night impulse buys. Just go write if you want to be a writer...and Smile, your about to be $3 richer!

A+ App

This is a wonderful app. It provides ideas and creativity to children. The app also has the ability to be paired with with lessons in the classroom, which as a teacher is a feature I love. This app also will align in lessons to the common core learning standards for responding to non-fiction texts.
THIS IS AN APP TO GET AS A TEACHER! Take it and run with it! Have your students (or if parents your children) read their favorite books and let them make their own story sparks!!! So much potential from one app... Hope you all enjoy the app as much as I do!!!
