The Best App Ever Awards were created to celebrate the best mobile apps available with the awards being voted on by readers. In 2011 over 1.5 million votes were cast in the Best App Ever Awards, and Pyxwise Software's Simplex Spelling HD - Dolch Sight Words won second place in the category of "Best Special Needs App".
Dr. Lisa Welburn stated, "It is a great honor for Simplex Spelling Phonics 1 to become a finalist in the 2012 Best App Ever Awards. We are so grateful that our apps have been able to help so many students become better spellers and readers."
The Simplex Spelling series takes a unique approach that teaches both phonics decoding and phonics encoding skills in a simple and engaging manner. Simplex Spelling teaches students "how to spell" English words so that the skills learned can be applied to the vast majority of the words in the English language. The integrated feedback and scaffolding systems help to guide a student towards figuring out how the English coding system works, and these systems act like a personal spelling coach for the student with every word.
The Simplex Spelling series of apps are available on the App Store in the Education category and can be found by searching for Pyxwise.
Evaluation copies of the Simplex Spelling apps are available upon request for educators, speech language pathologists (SLPs), occupational therapists (OTs), teachers, those working with technology integration, journalists, bloggers and app reviewers. When requesting an evaluation copy, please indicate the website or educational institution represented along with the type of students you work with, such as grade level, ESL students, or children with special needs.
