Would love to be able to contact Basic Skills Interactive LLC to learn more!

We are VERY interested in integrating an app like this for our struggling 4th and 5th grade readers. However; we'd like to get a viable link for contact to the maker. We are wondering what sort of academics are behind the passages and how the questions were generated. Basically, we want to contact the creator to discover the academic sources (research, programs, etc.). The website appears to be a PDF linked as a website, with an "unclickable" Contact Us button.

Good app, but needs to be improved.

# I like this app, it has small non-fiction passages about animals and then below are few questions related to it with multiple choice answer.
There is no animation or auto read, so the child has to read him/ herself. If a correct answer is selected it shows :) face and if it's wrong :(. The child can try by looking at the passage again and answering again.

# Things I don't like are:
-You can't create multiple users. :(

- some of the answer options are just a few words from the passage and not complete which can be confusing for the child.

- There is no way to bookmark at which passage you left off at or the level you are on. (very much needed)
-Difficult to remember which passage you have already worked on and what is the score on that passage :(
