The Spelling-Cam for iOS

By Matthew Butcher $1.99

Developer's Description

'The Spelling-Cam' is a unique resource that transforms the way children learn to spell. With 'The Spelling-Cam on your iOS device, the whole world becomes a spelling-stage; with endless opportunities to get creative and get spelling, using our innovative camera overlay.The built-in 'Spell-Cam' works with your device's camera-roll. Choose from the forty 'Tricky Words' taken from phases 2-5 of the Department for Education's popular Letters and Sounds publication (UK), or type in and use your own custom word up to 10 letters. Create your own works-of-art by seeking out the most stunning or unusual backgrounds, as you explore colour, light and texture and opacity to capture the perfect shot. Save - or print - your works-of-art as posters, flashcards or school displays. Once you start, you'll find it hard to stop - the possibilities are limitless.With 'The Spelling-Cam' learning to spell 'Tricky Words' happens by magic. To test this theory, we've included a 'Spelling Test' feature - good luck! Are you as good a speller as you are photographer? (Only available when working with 'Tricky Words')Every App needs a mini-game, so we've created 'Word Invaders' - a twist on the classic arcade game that's guaranteed to engage the most reluctant of learners. Battle your way through all forty levels to dominate the scoreboard and earn star-rating for all those 'Tricky Words' - just remember to let the kids have a turn! Launch into battle against your 'Custom Words' to really show them who's boss!We're very proud of 'The Spelling Cam' and we're sure you'll love creating and learning alongside us. That's where 'Photo Show' comes in: a feature that lets you create, save and print four Polaroid style prints of your favourite photographs.With ongoing competitions on our Facebook page, you'll get the chance to share your most awesome shots, as well as win the chance to feature photographs or artwork on future App updates.

They're included to support the learning process. Therefore, we recommend interacting with the App in all its glory; with the sound loud and proud. Ensure that your device isn't on mute/silent, and test volume control for the best possible Spelling-Cam experience.Words available for use on this version are: (Phase 2) I, no, to, into, go, the; (Phase 3) he, she, we, me, be, was, they, all, are, my, her; (Phase 4) said, have, like, so, do, some, come, were, here, little, one, when, out, what; (Phase 5) oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked, could._______________________Credits: Inspired by the popular blog-post from teachtothehilt.comhttp://teachtothehilt.com/english/take-word-walk-spell-tricky-wordsWith thanks to the genius at AngelApplications...Inspired mostly by an incredible wife; who forced my hand and insisted that this actually happened. Words cannot explain.And for F and J; Wow - we love you.
