What it is: an app for improving spelling and reading skills, contains over 260 high frequency sight words divided into 26 lists organized by spelling patterns and difficulty levels.

What you do with it: choose the word set, then listen to the instructions and examples and try to spell words correctly using the on-screen keyboard.

What we liked:the concept, wide range of learning material, the way the learning material is presented (extensive use of text and audio instructions and hints, sample sentences), simple to use interface, support for multiple user accounts (with separate word stats for every user), support for American, British and Canadian English spelling, very high educational value.

What we didn't like: could be a bit more appealing visually. Navigation is not consistent. In addition to the help menu we would like to see some sort of instructions/guidance for parents.

Bottom line: an excellent choice for teachers and parents (we recommend the whole Simplex Spelling series of apps).
