Good app! Could be even better.

I searched and searched for a fun app that my kids could use to practice their spelling words. I think this one hits the spot pretty well. I can add my own list, so they can be practicing exactly what’s required for their classes, not just some developer’s best guess. The graphics are cute and appealing. The games are pretty fun, though they seem a bit repetitive in mechanics or method of play so far. So, it will appeal to the younger grades especially. Your 5th grader and up will probably not be impressed. But even my 4th grader would rather do this than repetitive writing.

Spelling Monster works well one my iPhone but was quite glitchy on my iPad Pro, where most of the games wouldn’t function well enough to even attempt to play them. I would also prefer that the games were capable of both upper and lower case letters, according how the user entered the words, so the kids could practice using proper capitalization. Some of the spelling lists include both proper and common nouns.

Otherwise, great app and I will be recommending it to my friends and family. Please keep working on improvements. If I could have tried a free limited version with the above improvements added, I would have totally paid $5 to upgrade to the full version of the app. Just a thought.

Lots of bug little instructions

Lots of bugs. Little instruction. The voice never works. We can't seem to get past a certain level because the clouds don't clear but yet we have no idea how to move them. He's been playing for four weeks so he should've hit whatever plateau he was supposed to hit'

Voice does not work

I really like the games and that I can add my own list of words. I would love to have the voice work, that way the kids can hear the word an the letter name each time he select the letter.
