Grade Level: App describes 1st Grade but we say "Early Elementary".
Program Functionality: B / The App works as advertised but there are lots of similar apps like this that we think have more functionality.
Purpose: C / It is a memory game and nothing more.
Overall Educational Value: C / We like the app but we suggest checking out some other similar apps in this category as well. Once again, this is an intersting app that can't hurt and only help if kids like it. If the app had some functionality for teachers and or parents to manipulate it or extract data, it would make it much better.
App Developer's Description: Classic style memory games aimed at teaching the reading and spelling of the most common words a child will come across in their daily reading. The idea behind the game is for the player to remember the position of the cards that have been revealed on previous turns. It is a great game to develop attention, learn new words or just to keep your mind sharp.
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch. Requires iPhone 2.2 software update
Recommendation: We are recommending this app for personal use but not within a school setting at this time.
