Words for 8 to 11 year olds
I like the interface of this application. I wish the advanced was truly advanced so I could see if it would be useful to an adult. As is there's nothing in the 300 words that would be a challenge to anybody who can do a crossword puzzle. If they offered advanced words as an example I'd be glad to purchase a lot more. I would recommend this if you want to give it to a child in elementary school.
Potentially good app
This app has potential. However, not all features are working (flashcards, fill in the blank). I took a gamble paying for this app even though there were no reviews. For $0.99 you get what you pay for...not much, yet. Hopefully it will work better soon.
Good way to expand vocabulary. Should be used in elementary and jr. High.
