You probably think your child is the smartest one in his playgroup or class, and that surely he is a "chip off the old block!" Still, you want to keep your child's mind razor sharp, learning as much as possible so that he will excel in school. Fill The Gap Pocket can help you fulfill this ideal with children's learning software for Mac OS, iPhone and iPad. It's now possible to always have your child's favorite educational and entertainment tools at hand. Magmentis, the developer, has created this popular spelling and literacy program which has climbed to #4 in the UK and #5 in the US for top paid software in the Mac App Store.

This clever app intrigues children as they help Smudge, the dog, to fill the gaps in the words! There are so many varieties of exercises your child will be happily engaged with learning and gaining confidence in his academic abilities. Some of the educational features of Fill the Gap Pocket are as follows:

- 8 exercises and 3 levels of complexity, to adapt to all learners' needs
- More than 150 words with which to work
- New graphics and animations - learning is easier when enjoyable
- A new interface to give the best user experience on any device

As they help Smudge complete the words, students will practice how to avoid common mistakes in English spelling when they see how "blends" work together. They will also enjoy the colorful, cheery interface, graphics and animations. Fill the Gap Pocket increases in complexity to match the child's progress, while the three levels of difficulty are tailored to match the student's abilities at any given time.

When you open this children's educational app, you will be given the opportunity to choose word lengths of 4, 6, 8 or any letters. Additionally, you may choose where the missing letters occur whether at the beginning, middle or end of the word. Smudge, the Spaniel, sits dutifully awaiting your command and scratches himself most adorably from time to time. Once you've selected your options the fun begins. A board appears with a picture of an item and the word naming that item with dashes denoting the missing letters. You may tap the speaker icon to hear the word pronounced. You are rewarded when you guess correctly by seeing Smudge happily playing on the swing-set or playground.

Fill The Gap Pocket
has been created with much input from educational experts, and is suitable for English speakers or those learning the language. This is due to the psycholinguistic prompts provided by text, graphics and sounds which makes learning easier.
COOL CONCLUSION: Fill The Gap Pocket both educates and teaches your children important reading skills with a charming and interactive background and excellent literacy tools."
