This app is only for people who own or use the Barton Reading & Spelling System.

More than just tiles on an iPad, this app will save Barton tutors at least 10 minutes each session. How?

Student tracking
Set up each student once. This app keeps track of their current level and lesson. You can enter notes after each lesson. You can even send an email to the student and/or their parents or teacher – right from the app.

Tiles appear automatically
Tap on a student’s name and their lesson appears – with all the tiles needed for that lesson.

Words appear automatically
No need to build the words when you are teaching. Just click on the Next Word button. You will gain at least 10 minutes of teaching time per session.

Never put tiles away
When spelling with tiles, your student will pull down a COPY of each tile. When he is done, just click on the “Erase Screen” button. You never have to put tiles away.

Thanks for fixing the multi-touch! But…

PLEASE change the letter color on the tiles back to black. White-on-yellow for the vowels is hard to see. Or at least allow us to choose the text color. I may update after my first two students tomorrow to see how they respond.

Again, thank you for fixing the issue where touching with more than 2 fingers resulted in the app crashing. ❤️

App won’t work on newer iPads (6th gen)

On my son’s 4th gen it works. I did contact them, I got a reply, but not a helpful one.
On the 4th gen, it works well enough, crashing only a few times. The schedule in the book and the tiles seems to be off by 1 lesson, but my last kit was used, perhaps that’s why.
The app is very helpful but the price is not reasonable by any measure. I feel trapped in some ways. On the other side of that at least they where willing to open the lessons on the app although I bought it used. This was helpful. I doubt, however, if I have to pay $30 per lesson that I would by new. I prefer the new kits but the cost of the kit, shipping & tiles is tough.
The program itself is very good and is why I work hard to make it work. Customer service has been pleasant as well.

No schwa

This app saves a ton of time overusing the tiles. I think there are some improvements that could be made here and there for the price, though. It's incredible that a Schwa is not available as a separate tile. Once, when we were using Schwa and tried to use a regular e, The e automatically turned upside down into a Schwa, but on the very next word, it wouldn't do that when we needed it to.
