  • Worth the money

    While the provided content and special features (progress tracking, extra quizzes, fun factor) add value to the app, the full version is relatively pricey and might cost too much, especially in a 1:1 environment.

  • Scaffolding of learning

    The app is intuitive and easy to use. Users can tap the information icon to view additional instructions.

  • User safety

    The app does not contain ads or inappropriate content.

  • Control and feedback
