Dynamic, engaging, by proper educators

I will probably be short of praise in my review of the app. It was recommended to me by an English teacher friend of mine and we used it from Year 1 to year 3 (British curriculum) for our dyslexic child to help him learn how to read. The real success of the app (speaking as a parent) it that it is very engaging and they change all the time so there is always somewhere new to explore. I thoght at the begining that the american accent would be a downer but it was exactly the opposite, my son really enjoyed producing the accent himself and getting involved in the recording your own voice feature that is brilliant. I also had to deal with customer services and my experience was very good. I spoke to real people with real understanding not robots. I can add that it it was worth my money.
