Not worth the money. Would not progress through levels. My daughter gave up on it, and she has learned to read with a workbook system. I apparently wasted my money on the lifetime membership. And now it appears you have to buy another app to get the second grade level. Don't waste your time or money.
Only a few days in, but we're liking it! It downloads fast. We have yet to hit any bugs or glitches. Kids fight for a turn. They like the games. My 3 year old likes to watch over shoulders while it's on. I was spelling out words with scrabble tiles on the kitchen table, and he pointed to my word, and correctly said "dad!" He'd seen it in the program and remembered! I'm impressed! I have two with serious trouble with reading. Time will tell if this will help them, but so far, it's looking good!
I only rated 1 bcz I had too. I installed this for my daughter and every time we click the first level to start it takes us back to the play store app download screen. 🤔🤔😞😞 #BUGGS. I REALLY like HOOKED ON PHONICS so I'm a little upset
The app kept shutting down my son's tablet and when I let him play it on my phone, it keeps starting back on level 4 and will not save his progress. He had been on level 4 for 2 weeks. It is a great program when it works and he really enjoys it. I had some problems with progressing through the levels but I contacted customer service and they guided me through on what to do to fix the issue.
My son tries to play and it crashes on him all the time. I didn't pay $40 just to waste space on his tablet. When it did work he really enjoyed it but don't waste your money.
The app and website flow are confusing and not intuitive. Despite cancelling subscription through the google store, it still renewed via the online store. Customer service explained to me that despite the website stating to download the app, it had somehow created 2 accounts (which I'm not sure how this happened, as I did not create separate log ins). Be careful of this if you download the app after creating account through website. There's nothing wrong with the app, and customer service was helpful and issued a refund, but just be careful to check everything if/when you cancel your subscription.
