Add more skip buttons!!!
Developers : please add more skip buttons!!!
My son is dysgraphic and he never writes the words correctly, NEVER. I have to rewrite them again and the voice saying he directions over and over is also super irritating. Nowadays I have him write the words then I erase everything and write the words myself to lose less time: if we could have a skip button it would be less painful for both of us.
Just tried the trial, and the app has some great features that make it an almost purchase for my classroom. Unfortunately, the app lets kids skip ahead to new levels without the ability for the teacher to lock it, there is no placement test, if a student makes repeated mistakes it give a skip option, but progresses anyway, and the writing boxes are quite small at times. Sometimes the letter recognition is picky, and others, it accepted backwards letters as correct. I would love to use something like this to supplement my Orton lessons, but this just isn’t good enoug yet.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
