Great learning tool (very motivating for kids), but you must be willing to sit with your kids. However, the app suffers from poor QA, and my kids have lost all their progress several times so far. It would also benefit from a bit more rigour in phonics theory. For example: a) it has RIDE as a sight word when its clearly decodable (long vowel) - at the price of neglecting common sight words, and; b) it teaches blended two-consonants (e.g. SL, DR) when it really should be on digraphs (e.g. TH, CH).
Stopped after 1st lesson even though we paid for full subscription. Moving on to better programs
Waste of time I hate that I even started my children with this. It worked fine for a while and now their very disappointed because it won't open on any of the devices. 20 years ago I ordered the hooked on phonics through the mail. My husband learned how to read with it. To bad I don't have it anymore.
Could be great I just downloaded the app on my songs tablet and the app just keeps shutting down. It won't even go pass the welcome jingle. I did manage to setup to pay for it after the 7 day trial but for what
Liked it at first Like other users I'm having the same problem. It worked fine but after the last update it stopped working and won't go pass the welcome screen. My daughter really liked it and it was working so I'm bummed it stop working.
