Last one, promise!
Cold. In the description they spelt the word 'spelt' in American English, 'spelled', therefore I expect more of the same in the app. No thanks.

Either can be used in UK. Spelt is also a type of wheat

It can but it's common usage is in American English. Just like 'realize', 'canceled', 'honor' ect. We use spelt, that's the English convention, they use spelled. If you want to learn how to spell English correctly, or play a spelling game, an app using American English isn't going to help. That may not be the case here, I haven't downloaded it, but if the description uses words spelt using what's common over there rather than here then I'm disinclined to download it. The sad truth is that it seems people don't even realise anymore that they've supplanted what they learnt (again learned is more popular in America) at school with American culture. You'll never see an American use our spellings, ever, let alone our pronounciations, e.g. schedule pronounced 'shed-ule' and not 'sked-ule'.

I say all this not as a criticism of this app, only in reply to your post, and I'm not making any judgement of you either.

I disagree. Spelled is widely used and accepted unlike realize etc.

It is, I'm not disputing that, but one was more common in English and the other in American English. As American culture continues to permeate throughout our society 'spelled' is being seen more often than 'spelt' to the point where it's quietly superceding it.

The same will happen with all words ending 'ise'; they'll become 'ize' words before long. I realise that 'ize' has its roots in old English but so does 'ye olde'; that doesn't mean it's makes sense to use now.
