Thumbelina : 3D Pop-up Fairy Tale v1.0 [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked This is a great app to work on a variety of language activities with elementary school age readers. You can work on reading, reading comprehension, and other language tasks. The story is broken up with games every couple of pages. The animation and audio is great.
Improvements I would like to see more difficult games. The story was too long for younger kids but the games were way too easy for kindergartners and older kids. I would also like to see shorter stories. The games were designed for little kids, but the story was too long for younger kids.
General review This is a great app to work on a variety of language activities with elementary school age readers. You can work on reading, reading comprehension, and other language tasks. The story is broken up with games every couple of pages. However, the games were very simple and easy.

What I liked I really liked how well Simplex Spelling Phonics - Advanced Phonograms taught uses how to spell long and short vowels. The app also gave good hints and explanations when needed. The audio voice sounded good and was easy to understand. The app also gave great sentence examples.
Improvements The voice was clear most of the time. However there were still a few times when I had to replay the word and the sentence in order to figure out the word. I would like to see the voice improved a little bit more. I would also like to see words broken up into different levels. In one part "toe" and "mistletoe" were in the same section. Toe is an easier word to spell and "mistletoe" is tricky because it has a silent "t".
General review I think this is a great app to teach long vowel sounds. Spelling helps kids learn to sound out words, and it can be difficulty to teach kids the difference in long and short vowel sounds. This spelling app is a great way to help kids improve their ability to sound out words through spelling activities.

The Meeting App 1.1.2 [text]

What I liked I like that this app has so many different features. It's convenient to be able to put meetin information on Dropbox. I like the ability to use templates and the ability to make your own template. The calendar is functional and the display is a good size.
Improvements I would like to see two more options. It would be nice to have an easy way to save information about a meeting to carry over to another meeting day, if a decision isn't made. If this is a current feature, I had trouble figuring it out. I would like to see more templates because I liked using default templates better than creating my own.
General review This is a great app to use for meetings. It has a lot of features. The help sections and frequently asked questions sections for the app were easy to find. Sometimes apps with a lot of features can be difficult to use, but this app is user friendly. It make scheduling and taking notes during a meeting easier. However, it is a pricey app if you don't attend many meetings.
