Is It Any Good?

This is a helpful app that will aid kids who are just learning about or struggling with the complicated concepts of reading and writing. The writing process has a lot of steps that take kids years to master. Some kids, especially those with learning disabilities who are struggling writers and readers, can benefit from features such as word prediction and read-out-loud options to help reduce their frustration and improve their confidence when completing written assignments. iWordQ is not inexpensive, but in comparison to other text editors with similar features, it is not the most expensive option. Visually, iWordQ US is pretty plain. Within the app there are still many choices and options, but they aren't overwhelming. The app includes some useful features to try out that may offer writers some great long-term solutions and strategies.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
