  • One pedagogical flaw Apr 3, 2013

    By Mule blinders
    This is a good app, but there is one pedagogical flaw that I can't get past. At the end of the quiz, if the child misses a certain number of answers, he gets a big blue circle and a voice says "You have failed the quiz" and the program boots the child back to the beginning of the lesson. Sheesh! I thought that kind of stuff went out with the original McGuffeys! How about "good try, let's try it again." It's makes me not want to subject my Pre-school grandchildren to such categoric language.

  • Great App! Feb 6, 2013

    By flygirl737
    This is really a great app, for learning the good old phonics way! My only suggestion to make it better, is for the male voice that you hear through out.... Sound a bit more excited... He just sounds a little dry.... or bored, which makes it a little harder to keep the attention of a little one! But otherwise, it is awesome!

  • Autistic son! Amazing app for him! Mar 29, 2013

    By Monogue
    My autistic son is non verbal and is only 6 years old. This is an amazing app for him to practice on. We use an app called touch chat however very expensive and this one helps them to practice not necessarily speaking for them. I call the other app "A Voice for Jayce". This one is actually teaching him. Thank you very much for this app. So worth the money!

  • Nice sequence May 30, 2013

    By slpsrc
    Lessons can start off a bit slow. I like that you can move ahead. That said, lessons move forward in a nice logical order and my 5 yr old enjoys the animations. Some of the phonetic print can be confusing at first.

  • Well Worth the Money Mar 19, 2013

    By ltbrncutie
    Very good app. My 6 year old son has a hard time with phonics and I can already see improvement in just a few days. He actually asks to play the app so it is five stars in my book.

  • Save your $$$ for this!` Sep 21, 2012

    By Non-hipster
    There are lots of apps aimed at phonics and reading development, and then there is this! My students always look forward to working with this app, and more importantly I see retention and development. Great app! It's the best $$$ I've spent on an iPad app...

  • Too expensive Sep 24, 2015

    By cubasjeremy
    I like this app a lot and use it almost everyday for my reluctant reader, but it is too expensive for what is basically a digital workbook. There's no variety in the activities, just a new list of words and reading for each lesson. It is not bad, but I would like for it to be $9.99 or less.

  • Using for son with autism Sep 7, 2013

    By Momofbodhi
    We have been using this for homeschool and my son read the first sentence! It is a great app, however, I do not like the " you failed" when they get the test wrong, my son almost had a melt down when he heard that. It should be changed immediately!

  • fun phonics learning May 2, 2013

    By AWLAMBERT
    Our youngest is just learning blends and another child needs review. Perfect for both! All three of our kids think the little animated graphics at the bottom of the screen when an answer is correct are adorable. The dancing banana is a favorite.
