"Simplex Spelling Phonics 2 is an excellent learning tool for pre-elementary to elementary students to improve their English spelling and reading skills. This app is an invaluable tool for parents who want their children to have an edge going into school or for teachers who want to enrich their students' learning experience."
"Among the loads of features this application has, it allows for multiple user profiles and statistics tracking for each profile. The app can keep track of what words or lessons have been mastered or need more practice. Parents, guardians, or teachers can define what "mastered" is through the settings and be able to constantly keep track or their children's progress. Your children will definitely be using and learning from this very educational app for a long time."
