What I liked First of all, I really liked the colorful background with the twinkling stars. It created a very magical, mystical, happy setting. Second, the positive reinforcement with shooting stars, flowers and sounds of nature when you got a word correct was great. I liked the few blurbs with easy directions. I also liked that there were 3 options for the voice--kinda fun to have a variety. I especially like the feature where you hit the letter and the voice makes the sound and where you tap the word and the voice says the word--a great feature for kids and adults learning english.
Improvements Overall, I liked this app. The only thing that I thought could use a different approach is when you got a word wrong, there is no sound or graphic indicating that you spelled the incorrect word. Maybe put in a graphic with the word "oops, try again" or something similar. I think it would be helpful for those people learning english, just some kind of indicator.

I would like to see a Spanish version so I can learn Spanish.
General review Overall, I think this is a fun, cheerful app that will help kids and adults learn English. I really like the layout with the happy colors and sparkling stars. The positive reinforcement when you get a word correct is great--you hear nature sounds and see colorful butterflies, stars, flowers, rings, etc.. I also like that you get to see your score and the words that you got correct in the end, making it a very good teaching tool.
