Working on Word Board

Working on a new app to help kids read. It uses the Dolch word list, which is a list of common English words found in children’s books.

It uses a Collection View, with the flow layout estimated item size to size each cell based on the text. There’s also use of AVSpeechUttererance which is responsible for speaking the words with the “Siri” voice.

After a few test runs, my kids kept asking me to spell everything they could think of so they could type it in. I immediately created a second tab that lets you save custom words. These are saved in NSUserDefaults — nothing fancy.
