Simplex SpellingMs. Amato, a New York City teacher, had the following to say about Simplex Spelling HD after using the spelling app for only a short time with her students. "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."
