"As a parent, there is a lot to like about this app"
"I found this app so compelling that I will also be adding the companion app, Spelling Simplex HD, to our home curriculum as well."
"Spelling Simplex Phonics 1 is a very powerful supplement to improve a student's spelling and reading ability. It provides comprehensive knowledge that will support children in the mastering [of] phonics – a skillset essential to having good foundation to long-term literacy"
"I love that key spelling patterns and extensive spelling knowledge is imparted almost seamlessly by a simple and intuitive interface. As each word is pieced together from its smallest or simplex sounds, spelling hints and rules are provided to students in context and only as they are needed and requested. This app feels like it really helps to provide a firm foundation for students looking to become good spellers and efficient readers."

We are pleased to announce that Ms. Amato a NYC school teacher has been using our Simplex Spelling applications in her classroom with dramatic results. Ms. Amato had the following to say about Simplex Spelling HD.
"The Simplex Spelling HD application for sight words is wonderful. I work with students with autism and my students absolutely love it. It is an amazing way to learn the basic sight words." "My students have increased their spelling correctly by fifty percent." "I would recommend this application to all parents and educators. It would be a great use for anyone to utilize with both disabled and non-disabled students/children."
Ms. Amato had similar praise for Simplex Spelling Phonics 1.
"It is an amazing way to learn the spelling and phonemic awareness of words. My students were motivated to keep spelling the words." "By going through words and showing the short a, long a, short e, long e along with the rest of the vowels in order, it allows students to learn flawlessly. When students need help they can press a button and get phonics help to spell the word. This is very useful because it helps my students to build independence." "My students are so happy to learn by playing and your application promotes learning through play, which is the best way to learn."
The iMum recently posted a combined review for Simplex Spelling HD and Simplex Spelling Phonics 1. They have done an excellent job of describing in depth how our spelling apps work. If you would like more information, please go check out the review.
"Overall, I really like the Simplex Spelling apps and think they are the best on the market at teaching your child how to spell in English."
"where the Simplex Spelling apps excel is teaching your child how to spell. I really like how individualized the hint system is – you can choose to have no hint, or just hints for individual sounds, and instead of just telling them the letter that is missing, it teaches them what could make that sound. I also like that if the child gets the right letters but in the wrong order, the blue colored tiles let them know that, instead of just labeling it as wrong."
Apps For iPads recently posted their top 4 "Super Spelling Apps For iPads" and we are honored that Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 made their list.
"We particularly liked the module that made it sound like you are competing in a spelling bee, giving them the word, using it in a sentence, and then helping them sound it out."
"We think you will agree that this app is great for grade-school aged kids! It's not cute or babyish at all, and will be a good addition to study time in most homes."
"The four spelling apps we selected today are some of the very best you are going to find for your young children. They are all just the right combination of learning and fun!"
