Small pop-up ads for the developer's other apps appear regularly on the home screen. When users tap on the ads, they have to enter the digits that represent a word number; kids using this fourth-grade app will be able to do this with no problem, so it's not an effective parental control. This takes users to a list of apps that can be purchased in the App Store. A free version of the app has a limit of 20 questions per day.

QUALITY

Earning points and rewards to unlock games is motivating, and the brightly designed worksheets are engaging. Unfortunately, the rewards aren't baked in to the learning process, so some kids might end up distracted. Also, some of the worksheets can be a bit redundant, but this is a necessary part of practicing skills and becoming fluent in them. With more than 100 worksheets that cover 12 topics, along with detailed progress reports, the app is a solid buy.      

Families can talk about...
