The Blundell brood has been no stranger to the application line up from Zeebu Mobile. The last app we looked at was the ArtGo Colouring application for the BlackBerry PlayBook, well, my son had more of a look at it than I did. Zeebu Mobile recently released another “edutaining” application by the name of WordGo! Spelling. Made for BlackBerry smartphone, with or without a touch screen, WordGo! Spelling has a library of over 50 words ranging between 3 and 5 letters in length.
The application uses images to first help the child determine the word and then learn to spell the word. Each letter and word is read aloud by Word GO! Spelling, providing motivation and audible learning. If you are using a touchscreen BlackBerry, your child can drag the letters into the correct order. If not, then you can make use of the keypad. Some children may get frustrated, so the application provides a hint option that will display a semi-transparent image of the correct letter. As always, the applications from Zeebu are fantastically designed and sport unique imagery and colour – easily ensnaring the attention of kids…and some adults too. In typical Zeebu fashion, Word GO! Spelling offers an application lock feature that prevents children from exiting the app and wreaking havoc in your messages, browser, contacts and files. Word GO! Spelling is available for $3.99 from the CrackBerry App Store.
