Tricky but worth it My son (5 years of age) and I love this game. Freeplay or timer, play to your kids ability!!! Only when your child is capable let them play the same level against the clock. These are flash cards! Responses are supposed to be impulsive and quick, your child will learn to discern beggining middle and end sounds at a glance in order to beat the clock. Having only a limited choice of two words you can actually watch how your child discerns differences between words. After having freed an animal he's hooked.
Cute app but... Would be nice if i could turn off the timer. My child got so discouraged because he kept running out of time! Also, the sound didnt work on a couple of them.
Good practice, interface glitchy and limited I like the concept, and my daughter enjoys the game, but it is a little glitchy. Sometimes the sound doesn't play for a word, or selections don't register. Also, the timer graphic burns down faster than the actual time left. A good feature to add would be to allow parents to change the challenge time. My 4 year old is ready to start sight words, but she is frustrated by the time constantly running out and she never gets past the first level.
Wish there was a way to turn off the timer. My 6 year old has a learning disability and has trouble with words. She can't keep up with the clock. Having to uninstall to find something her level.
Timer has to go. For children trying to learn the words, this feature is not feasible.
Would be better if I could adjust speed Starts out too fast for my purposes, but it would work fine for most kids.
