Doesn’t work with iPad magic keyboard

We’ve used Squeebles Spelling for a long time and it has been brilliant helping my sons learning to spell - I do recommend it.

However, I’m really frustrated to have got a magic keyboard to allow my dyslexic son to get the benefit of developing muscle memory, typing while spelling, only to find the app doesn’t support the keyboard.

Please Squeebles, could you sort this out?! Being dyslexic too I found touch typing allows me to think in whole words while my fingers know the patterns - I don’t have to concentrate on spelling in the same way you do when writing by hand. Often repeated keystrokes - so words or syllables - become automatic. It’s a game changer for many dyslexic people - and Squeebles Spelling could be just that little bit better at supporting us. Thank you!

Best spelling app I have found

This app is the best one I have found so far. I love the way you can record your own spelling lists as we have found other apps are difficult to work out what custom words are saying. I also love how it puts incorrect spellings into a new list to practice and it allows various settings for what happens if they get it correct. The other handy feature is being able to share my lists with up to ten devices so it can go on our phones, tablets etc.

If the app makers change it so that the child’s account can be linked between devices then I will give a five star as that is all that seems to be lacking with this app.

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.
