Delightful App

Now I had gotten this app for my younger sister (who is 11) because she had always complained about how I corrected her on grammar, when she was making errors someone her age should not have. After watching her experiment with it for awhile, I had told her to download it on her own phone. After that, I did some experimenting for myself, and I can say with confidence that this app is beneficial to ones grammar.

Best app ever I definitely recommend this to any of you guys who need help with grammar. I have nothing to complain about, it is a perfect app. Furthermore I have nothing to change about it. It was also very fun! It helped me improve my grammar a bit, even though I know most of the things. So I DEFINITELY recommend it!!!

It’s great but…

I love this app but adds are a little too much, they come back to back. A paid add-fee option would be nice.

Another annoyance is when you are done with the test, it tries to connect to a server to show you the ones you got right and wrong, some times it takes a minute. You cannot do anything while app is doing this.

Otherwise it has rich content and well designed.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review and suggestion. And also thank you for flagging the connection problem. Would you mind to delete and reinstall this app? This solution usually helps with the connection problem. I will pass your comment about adding a ad-free in-app purchase to our app manager. We hope you continue to enjoy learning with us. :)
