  • Great customer support Dec 31, 2018

    By GWUTN
    22Learn and Phonics Island has great customer support. I emailed through their website about a glitch in Phonics Island. I got a response the same day (a weekend), and they helped troubleshoot the issue for me. I greatly appreciate the customer service.

    the game is very good and my three year old girl loves her but every time she logs on it tells her to buy the full version even though we've already purchased it. once we are in the app store then we just select open and all the levels appear I don't know why every time we get into the game we have to do this and if she comes out out of the game by accident we have to go through the whole process again
  • How many times do you have to buy?? Apr 18, 2019

    By CoD Fan47
    I already bought this but all of a sudden it asks if I want to unlock the full version. What's up with that? It would be nice if the free & purchased apps had totally different icons. The grand kids love the app, but are opening the wrong one at times.
  • Nice app, please change the "start" screen ads Aug 6, 2013

    By Berliner
    The app gives kids two main tasks: There's a matching game, in which the phonic value of each letter is sounded whenever its card is turned over, and there's a section where animals need to be put into a train based on the sound you hear when saying the animals' names. The graphics are nice, and you can skip ahead easily if you've already heard the directions. What I don't like is the "start" screen, which consists of a sun which you push to start the game -- but its surrounded by a dozen other apps that CF Corp is trying to get you to download. It's aggressive marketing, it's a distraction for any five year old using the app, and it irks me every time I see it. Once you get to the rest of the app, though, everything's great. The memory game is a great way to learn phonics values; my kid loves it.

  • Nice app, but at least one bug Jan 11, 2012

    By WoodworkerP
    I generally like this app. I haven't been through all the levels yet, but there is a bug on level five. When you get to the very last set of exercises on that level, the train grows as animals are selected. However, once you select one animal for each sound, the train asks for more animals and you are unable to select any animal. And even of you could select more animals, there is no train car to put them in. On that level the train never pulls out of the station. As a result, it's not possible to complete the level. And the poor kid never gets the prize. My four year old was disappointed.

    My 2 year old loves this and I love watching him learn. This app really challenges him in a great way. From learning the types of animals to how to correctly write letters [lowercase and capitals] I couldn't ask for a better app for him. Definitely worth the money and I never buy apps haha. Thank you!
  • Amazing educational phonics app Aug 19, 2014

    By Himanshu Sharma (Cal)
    My daughter plays this app all the time. She loves the game where she can pop the balloons with letters on them as well as the one where she puts animals whose name begins with a particular letter into the train. I am a demanding parent when it comes to high-quality educational media for children and I am more than happy that I downloaded this app for my 4-year-old daughter. The app is very engaging and easy to use for her, and she has already learned almost all the letter sounds. If like me you have a child who is just beginning to read, Phonics Island is the way to go to get them started. Letter sounds are pronounced clearly and you have the option to choose either uppercase or lowercase letters. In sum, this is a fantastic app!

    If the game progress was saved when child accidentally hits the game's home button, which is way too easy to it because it is right in the top corner, then i would give this game 5 stars. My son gets extremely upset when he is about to beat a level and he hits back and had to repeat all the steps again!

    First app I buy and its useless. Not worth the money. Allot of the letters are mispronounced. R is pronounced ahhh...I is pronounced ahhh. For someone with a child that has issues with phonics I would not recommended this app.

  • A really superb way to learn letter sounds and more! Aug 19, 2014

    By ImportFan66
    My kids absolutely love this app and I can honestly say that Phonics Island Adventure is probably the best out there! My children are so inspired by the bright colors, user friendly interface and rewards this app presents. My kids think they are playing an awesome game while at the same time they are learning their letter sounds by associating it to their favorite animals and more. My kids love the newest update which includes new learning games such as tracing letters and identifying letters by sound! I highly recommend this app to any parents or teachers looking for a new and intellectual way to teach their children letter sounds!
  • Fixing the no sound problem on payed apps May 11, 2013

    By Caseybarreto3
    Double click home button..swipe the apps on bottom of screen from left to right and you will see a music control type looking thing come up. On the far left you will see a volume button that most likely will have a slash through it meaning its on mute. Click on it to un mute it. Now it will work..i followed their app support here and thats what they showed. It worked for me on all my apps that didnt play music that i bough.

  • Very cute app Feb 17, 2014

    By TheAppLover7
    Abby Monkey is a really fun character. The graphics and sound quality are fantastic playing this on an iPhone 5. The great thing about this app and others from 22L is that the kids are are occupied with some fun, but it's educational at the same time. With the matching game, it's not just rote memorization. The app is making the sounds of each of the letters, so the kids are actually learning their letters instead of just remembering the symbols.
  • One of the best phonics apps on the market Dec 28, 2013

    By UCF
    As a teacher, I am always looking for new ways to help my students along, and I regularly try new educational apps. So far this is one of the best apps I have seen for practicing phonics. My children use it and love it, my students parents’ come to me all the time telling me how much their child enjoys it and how much they have improved. 22learn is a great company and produces quality apps always.
  • Love this Montessori app! Jul 9, 2014

    By JettyBetty
    As someone who is a huge fan of the Montessori Method of learning, I was ecstatic to find that Phonics Island Adventure impliments it into their app. This app is packed with adorable animals and illustrations which kids will love. The fact that the developer is almost always adding new things is awesome, as well! This is definitely a great app that's highly recommended for parents of youngsters who are learning how to read!

  • Good game, but has problem that needs to be fixed May 5, 2014

    By NiyiDelano
    This game is great and my kids love it! They love tracing the letters, putting the animals in the train cars, and my almost 2 year old son absolutely loves to pop the balloons. One problem that I have noticed with the game is on level 6. When you get to the second part of placing animals in the train cars it asks for the animals that begin with either Q, Y, or Z, but there is only one animal that begins with the letter asked for. Once you choose that animal, the game either freezes or there is no other animal to choose from so you can't complete the game. If this could be fixed, that would be great.
  • All good on iPad, but small problem with Kurio tablet Jul 12, 2016

    By Streftruopccc
    My son really loves this app, but after tracing the letters so many times he doesn't want to do that anymore. I can turn that function off in the settings when using my iPad, but it does not show that function on the Kurio tablet. It just doesn't make sense because all the other options are there. I checked the developers web site and could not find a solution so I just emailed them today. I'll post if they provide a solution. P.s. Check the developers website link for solutions to most of your issues Mark
  • I never do reviews... Mar 4, 2017

    By Expiscor
    Ok, I never do reviews but I had to say something about this one. It is awesome. My son fell in love with it on sight. He is 2 and the letter sounds activities were so much fun for him. He laughed while popping the balloons and seeing things fall. So he definitely had fun while learning. I quickly realized that I needed the full version. So I purchased it. This was just the first night so I am sure he will spend lots of time learning on this app. He was very upset because I made the dreadful mistake of introducing him to the app close to bedtime. Don't make that mistake....✌🏾
  • Everything great but the tracing Mar 26, 2016

    By Broilah
    My son loves this game and it really is a very good game. My son is learning and he thinks the game is fun. The problem is the tracing. It is so sensitive and frankly difficult for my 4yr old and myself. He's starting to get so frustrated that he wants to quit that whole game over this one issue. I hope the game makers will fix this problem. When you trace you have to be COMPLETELY precise and even then it doesn't always work. Other than that one thing, it's a great great game.

  • We like it Feb 2, 2017

    By Hennemonger
    I never buy full apps. I just let me kids at few ones. But when my 2 year old was choosing correct letters after a few weeks, I broke down and bought it. The only thing is, the tracing is a bit hard, even for my 4 year old.

    After upgrading the rest of the alphabet is still locked. Have done a restart but this did not fix. Developers please respond and help. My son loves this but I will have to get refund if the rest of the letters are not unlocked. Thank you.
  • Mar 28, 2015

    By JJ NOTTS
    Very difficult for child to secure the start and continuation of tracing the letters. Have to push hard and younger kids use much lighter touch on screen.
  • Nice program but needs bug fix ASAP! Jun 12, 2014

    By westsidecarrie
    My son was in level 6 and it got to the place where you put the animals with the correct sounding the train and it jams! He put the 1 st Q word (animal) in the train but when he went to put the 2nd one in, it kept asking the question but the screen was not allowing him to do anything. We went back out and started over but same exact problem. Please fix this as it is very annoying and makes it impossible to finish to the rest of the game! Mom of4yr old
