Great app

I love words. I learned to speak Spanish when I first went to live in Mexico 35 years ago. Learning another language truly changes ones perspective on life. But most of us don’t even know how to speak or write in our own language. If one uses a word such as ‘imperious’ in conversation, one gets the deer in the headlights look. I love to read novels and travel stories from the 1800s in order to keep up my vocabulary. Thanks to games like this one, there is another way to challenge oneself. Keep up the good work. I like the way words that are answered incorrectly are repeated so that they begin to stick. Perhaps you could do a punctuation game. People could relearn about periods at the ends of sentences!
I do have a problem with the game freezing. It stays frozen for several days. To whom is a problem like this reported? CKR

Ads disrupts quizzes but I upgraded.

I really love this app but I can’t even take quizzes. The screen begin to flash repeatedly that I fail to answer a question. This only happens when I’m thinking. I would love to buy a remove ad version but all I see is purchase to unlock levels. Please put an option to remove ads upgrade. For now I’ll patiently wait, and hopefully I’ll be able to make use of this wonderful app. Thanks! I’ll change review later.

EDIT: took my chances and upgraded. No more ads. I’m now very happy. It does need an update for iPhone X though. Changed to five starts since i have upgraded and love it even more.

Ads shut down app midgame

I really want to love this game, but it’s impossible to play it most of the time. Video ads will shut down or freeze my app mid level. I will try to reopen and replay the level three or four times but more often than not I end up giving up, especially since progress is lost.

I completely understand the need for ads in a game and will withstand quite a bit of annoyance for a game a really like, but I hope developers can fix whatever is causing this crash.

That being said, the games are fun and the vocabulary starts off at a good tier of difficulty (in my opinion), rather than having to wade through level after level of low level vocabulary words. I’m a sucker for word games and this is right up my alley; simultaneously fun and a tool for finding and learning new information.
