Make Learning Fun and Personal with Mystery Word Town Update


A new and exciting update to Mystery Word Town brings two major features. The first feature allows users record their own words. This is something the creators are very excited about! Joey Keating from Artgig Studio said, "There's just something about hearing your own voice, or your kid's voice, or your dog's voice, coming out of the game. And you can add as many words and lists, as useful and silly, as you like."





The second new feature allows users to create custom word lists. This is a great way to differentiate for each child in your classroom or each one of your children at home. 

 “We’ve always strived to make our apps flexible and customizable for a range of users and applications, but allowing the user to be personally involved in the functionality of an app is a really exciting twist on interactivity.” said Joey Keating from Artgig Studio.


These two major updates makes learning sight word a lot of fun! We also recommend checking out Artgig's other great educational apps on their website
