Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Spell Better reviews

Typing isn't very responsive This works OK if using the word prediction but it seems to lag when typing out the words - very frustrating! I would like to see this improved so I can use it more with students at school! February 14, 2014 update. This new update definitely improves the speed and the lagging is not there anymore. Thank you! I have another request. I noticed the words are only spoken if chosen from the word bank. Can you make it so the words are also spoken when the individual types in the word rather than using the word bank?

This app for iPad has it all: spell check, word prediction, text-to-speech capabilities, and a dictionary. Generating written output is a snap with Spell Better, and sharing documents is easy, too. Even weak spellers with developing typing skills will benefit from this well-designed app.

Since they are able to devote more of their attention to the content, learners using this app are able to increase the length and depth of their writing.

Writing Wizard for Kids reviews

This app has great features for early learning and teachers, specifically during distance learning. However, as a virtual teacher, I'm disappointed that the app hasn't done more to make it user friendly for students to use at home and teachers to collect data. Handwriting is one of the most challenging things to measure via distance learning. I would love for the app to have student log ins so my students can use it at home. I reached out to the company and was just told they don't offer that.

It's a fun app for the little boys however you don't get the full alphabet, only numbrrs 1-7, like five words out of 20, the images are misleading, and there are 10 mouths to feed at my house so we have extra money to upgrade apps that don't even tell you that you don't get everything and it's hard for the three year olds to use and it should be easy. Also there are a lot of ads that are right in your face that get accedentally clicked by little fingers as well as pop up ads that get invasive.

I liked this app when we first bought it. Both of my sons really liked it as well. Unfortunately, my son broke his tablet and now it's making us purchase it again. It says it is a one time purchase and use forever- That does Not seem to be the case though
