Ratings and Reviews
Not a great experience so far. App doesn't save login details so have to constantly re login for kids - it won't let them change their passwords to something they can remember. A glitch meant one of my children ended up with a huge negative number of honeypots which they say they can't fix or resolve so he has very little interest any more as it's done on a school league table and he can't compete. I paid for both apps thinking they'd be good and my kids would enjoy them but a waste of money. I have contacted many times to resolve but they aren't much interested in resolving or refunding. Unimpressed.
A fun way to learn your weekly spellings
My kids have loved playing this game. I put in their spelling words for the week and off they go. A good tip is later in the week I create a smaller spelling list if the words they have struggled with and they just play with those. My kids scores have improved loads.
Best for spelling test practice!
I’ve downloaded several of these spelling type games and I’ve been frustrated time and time again.
This one - thankfully!!! - is perfect for enabling my children to practice for their weekly spelling tests by me being able to create my own lists from an extensive list of available words.
The default spelling practice is also very useful for broadening their exposure to spelling new and unfamiliar words.
My main gripe is that the game itself is terrible. It’s like hangman where you need to find the letters and figure out what the word is before you..... run out of bees. Not helpful for learning to spell because you already need to know how to spell fairly well to play hangman.
My other minor issue is that you tap the letters on screen rather than type them so missing an opportunity to practice qwerty letter locations.
