iphone app reviews

Simplex Spelling HD, by Pyxwise Software Inc., is an award-winning iOS universal education app that makes the process of learning spelling super simple, and at the same time improves your child’s reading skills. This application was thoughtfully developed with children in mind; it has a clear and easy explanation of how the application works, immediately upon entering the app in the introduction. The app uses phonics and reverse phonics to help teach young children, remedial readers, and those learning English as a second language, with a complete immersive spelling approach. There are 240+ high-frequency words that can be mastered while learning spelling within this application. The spelling process is intuitive and can be completed in more than one way from tapping on letters to dragging them to the correct place in the word. When learning, a word is pronounced, then used in a sentence and pronounced again before the user spells. If the user needs to hear the word again, he or she can simply tap on the speaker icon and hear the word information again. There are hints as well, that provide the phonics rule information and reverse phonics rule information. This app is a great learning tool for a family or classroom, has a multiple users function, and allows for statistics tracking and progress. This app also contains graphic stars and applause sounds when the correct answer is given — helping to build confidence in the learning and mastering process. I wish I had had this application back in primary and secondary school, when I was learning semantics — I am sure I would have done much better than I did. There is also a FREE version called Simplex Spelling Free Lite – Learn How To Spell High Frequency Words With Reverse Phonics, which you can test prior to purchasing the paid version — so get spelling today!
