SpellIT! App Review

I have 4 kids and my 3rd is just learning to read. My first 2 never had the chance to learn with apps. My 3rd is taking every opportunity to exchange homework time for educational app time. When she is on my iPhone she can spend as much time as she likes on the SpelliT app. The design is completely kid friendly and the app is designed with classroom learning in mind. 

The app starts out with easy words that are pronounced with crystal clear pronunciation and the child can then attempt to spell the word with the integrated kid keyboard. If they get stuck they can click on the hint button which gives them hints one letter at a time. They can also have the word repeated as often as they need. You can also build your own lists of words and record them. Here is a list of features and screenshots from the app:



- spelling quiz
- create your own quiz, perhaps on your favorite topic (sports, food, etc)
- full keyboard to make it difficult, selected letter only for beginners
- display the number of characters to make quiz easier
- built in quizzes for immediate entertainment
- errors are stored for easy follow-up
- 'hint'-feature helps users that get stuck
- post results on Twitter or Facebook and challenge your friends

You can get my favorite spelling app here:

New quizzes are created in the ipad version. Once created. They are automatically transferred to the iPhone using the same account.
