Not a bad app. I am an older sister to one who is four. Because of her decay in phonics, I decided to download this app; getting great results as well! Though the reason I did not give all five stars was due it's dull background and less attractiveness towards small kids.
The old app was great as the basic sounds were free but now they want over 7euros per grouping which is way over the top. I would not mind paying 7euros for the lot but 36 euros just for the basic sounds is a rip off that price does not even include the tricky words or alternatives. Which is an extra two euros a section. A reasonable price would be no more than 10 euros. What they are doing is dirty. The kids use it in school and only wealthy kids would be able to afford this. The less wealthy kids are basically denied an educational tool for let's be honest very few families can afford the price of the full app.
We are in junior infants and this app used to help us a lot with homework and practising but it used to be free, now it's 7 euro for every 6 letters. Our tablet has been reset by Samsung so now to finish last 4 letters we have pay for old sounds we completed. Complete rip off and money making on kids! You are aware this app is used in schools and it's badly needed and that is why you put you price rediciously high! I would love to stay away if I could!
Dislike from me. The fact that you have to pay for all except the first group.. shocking, we're trying to teach our children and we have to pay. Disgusting if you ask me
If this app can be streamed on google chromecast, i will give 5 stars. The sounds have some issue, sometimes very low in volume and somtimes need to quit and reopen because of no sound coming out.
You're only getting two stars from me because the paid upgrade is not good for my other devices. Sorry but if I bought it on my tablet I shouldn't have to pay again to use it on my phone or my kids tablet.
