5.0 out of 5 stars great for learning spellings issued at school 11 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
You can add your own list to the app and edit it, it also provides some squeebles if the spellings are correct which can then be added and a game is provided. A must for children who do not like or struggle to learn spellings. This is a very hands on app and is great for children who learn in a more visual way. Very easy to use both for child and adult!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic learning resource to spellings 17 Feb 2014
By Craig
Verified Purchase
A great resource for helping your child to learn any spellings that you want in any language. Just add the words, record yourself or your child saying the word and then they are ready to start learning the spellings. Any words that are spelt incorrectly are grouped together into a 'tricky word' category. Includes game reward system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab spelling app! 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
This app is fantastic! I have a mildly dyslexic daughter who does not enjoy spelling but she does with this app. The tests have different settings and because you record the words yourself there are no accent issues. The fact that they earn points to buy squeeberangs is an additional encouragement.

5.0 out of 5 stars wish I had bought this earlier! 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Easy to create your own tests from your child's weekly school spelling list. My children are happy to practice their spellings this way and I no longer have to nag. They are also able to do a "tricky" test which is made up of the spellings they got wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars makes spellings fun. 24 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Have just bought this for my reluctant 8 year old. He has difficulty with spellings and therefore never wants to practise. The fact that I can add his spellings each week is great.
I would recommend this to anyone with a primary age child. Wonderful.
