  • Great collection of Apps

    Without question these apps have helped my kids enormously. Well thought out and fun. Swapping home made spelling tests between devices is easy.
  • Brilliant!

    This is working really well with my very reluctant to write 11 year old, who loves to earn rewards. He will actually practice his spelling on this app. It's easy to add the word he needs to learn and enables me to track progress and focus him on the word he needs to go over again. It's really taking the pressure off and means I'm not nagging him to practice. Just a bit concerned what I'll do when he has all the squeebles. It would be good it there were more squeebles (unless I'm missing something) and maybe a choice of games - it might give it a longer age span.
  • Best spelling app ever

    By jori123
    User friendly, child friendly, lower case keyword, ability to record a word clue or helpful hint, incentives for success... absolutely inspired!
  • Brilliant!!!!

    By Em4547
    Absolutely brilliant app!!! My daughter refuses to learn her school spellings on pen and paper as it's not "fun" it's "boring" using this has made homework time an absolute breeze. And because it's on the iPad she wants to "play" it all the time as it doesn't feel like work!!!! What a great app. Thank you 👌
  • Could be great

    By Evie gs
    I like this app but for one thing: the person says the word but there is no function to place that word in a sentence, for example my daughter was asked to spell "our" but she thought it meant "hour" and was upset (she's 5) that she got it wrong when in fact it she got it correct.
  • Great app but last update not good..

    By Annie_Fanny
    This app is great to get my son to learn his spellings but the last update removed numbers from the keyboard.. Everything else in the app works fine but I name each test by the date he has his test at school, which I can't do anymore as there are no numbers! Any reason why these were taken away??
  • Excellent Apps

    By Anon-purb
    Finally my daughter enjoys doing her spellings, thank you!! Easy to use, concise instructions for my 5 year old to read and follow I love the options of how long she can see the word for. Fabulous app helping children, thanks again
  • Excellent

    By Weemys
    Really easy to create your own spelling tests and the idea of recording your spellings is great too. As a Key Stage One teacher I am very impressed with this app.
  • Disappointed

    By Abbettz
    There is too much tricky reading for my five year old!! There should be an option to have the instructions and questions read out as in other apps we have. I have to be sat with her to use this app so she knows what to do.....please change this!
