    NOT FOR KIDS-NO settings to adjust difficulty

    I bought this thinking that my 7 year old would enjoy playing and improving her spelling skills. USELESS to her! There is only a list of words that most people have never heard of and you just check "correct or incorrect" - so it's just a 50/50 chance guessing game. I went to the settings to try and adjust level for her age and the only options there are choosing 1 or 3 font styles. Wast of Money! Also had the same problem with the "Math Wiz" app - too difficult for my 7 year old and no way to adjust playing level. Called B&N and requested a REFUND on both!

    Fun but repetitive

    The game is fun, but it uses a lot of the same words repeatedly.

    Good spelling game.

    You getwhat it says in this game. A list of words is presented anc you decide if they are correctly spelled. Timing makes it more challenging.

    Improved

    When I first purchased this, I had many of the same problems with freezing up. Now it works like I had hoped it would.

    Doesn't respond to touch

    Must be a glitch in the app. This would be a great educational game if it responded to your touch when checking answers. Since you are timed and cannot move on to the next word on the list until you check your previous answer, you are left with frustration and an unaccurate score. It insults your intelligence! Until they update and fix these problems, do not buy this app.

    It's working for me!

    I bought this before reading the reviews-- glad I did or I wouldn't have; perhaps they have since fixed the bugs after so many bad reviews. So, I love the game. I am a poor speller and this really helps me on two levels: speed and accuracy. This will becom a favorite!

    Great when it works

    This was a very good idea for an app.It teaches spelling in a great way however,the screen is unresponsive at times which makes it very hard to get a great score. I give it 4 stars because its a great game when it does respond correctly. Glitches need to be fixed otherwise a nice app.

    I love this

    This concept is just perfect, and it is created just for the nook. Being a student I love this, although i wish the response time could be improved on marking connect or incorrect, can not wait for update !

    Do not recommend!

    This game is very difficult. I thought I could spell, but it is a
    definite challenge. Too hard for any kids I know. A waste of money.

    Terrible!

    I can only check several words, then the program quits working, not allowing me to check any more words, but it does keep timing me.

    Poor functions

    ther spelling game is very hard to function to check the correct answer so the program must not work. If it did I think it would be a great refresher game and meet my expectastions but as is it does not function correctly.
