Ratings and Reviews
Great app, well worth the money
I think this is a great app for online teaching. I don’t see $10 being a steep price for it. I think I can spend what I make in one class for an awesome app that I would repeatedly use. To the developers, great job! An app like this was long overdue. I haven’t had any bugs. I have been using it for all my classes since I bought it. I use it for rewards and extensions: “what do you see?” What I would like, or recommend, are some tutorials on how to add more rewards. I know this is meant to be a growing collaborative app since we can add rewards and share them. Therefore a more extensive tutorial would be awesome. Also, my students love the fact that stars pop at them for FAS. Can we get the same effect when they win at Tic-tac-toe? My last recommendation, guess my word is awesome!!! SUPER KUDOS FOR THAT!!! But I would love for the letters to be bigger. Thanks.

We happy that you are enjoying the app! Thank you for the wonderful feedback. Your suggestions are very helpful so we can make this app better for you and everyone! We can make these changes soon. As for help with making rewards, we will keep tweaking the way they are made so it is more intuitive and simple. For now, you can read instructions on how to make them by clicking the "i" icon when you are adding a reward.
Thanks for your support!
Many rewards in one place
This is a great reward system for online ESL teachers. There is a variety of topics that rewards and props are offered for. I like that there are rewards that can be used for younger students as well as older students. My older students like the find a star rewards. If I were to make a suggestion to make the app even better, maybe the creator could add a school theme, a weather Theme, and a reward where people could be dressed in different clothes according to the weather or season. I would be happy to buy another app by the creator. I am very impressed. Thanks.

Thanks for the review! We're glad you're enjoying the app! Those are great ideas for rewards. We'll plan on adding them in a future update, so keep an eye out for that 🙂 Thanks!
Awesome tool for ESL classroom
I read about this app on a VIPKid FB post and checked it out. Bought it and have been playing with it for the last hour. No more hunting the Dollar Tree & Target dollar spot for props and rewards & no more printing/cutting/laminating props and rewards. I wish I would have known about this when I first started with VIPKid. $10 on this app vs who knows what I’ve spent in total. The $10 is totally worth it. Has everything you need and super easy to create/add more. Thank you, this is much easier to use IMO than the google slides.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
