Justin's World - Lettersounds
By Nearly Too Late Ltd
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Justin Fletcher, the UK’s favourite children’s TV presenter, is here to help and guide your child through this valuable introduction into phonics. Video combined with interactive animations and illustrations bring phonics to life in a fun and meaningful way.
- Videos of Justin teaching initial letter sounds.
- Fun and learning based around the Primary National Strategy.
- Rhymes and alliteration to reinforce sounds
- Beautiful illustrations and animations that make learning phonics fun.
- Interactive games to test and consolidate your child’s learning.
This educational app introduces and reinforces children’s understanding of initial letter sounds, as outlined in The Primary National Strategy. Working with the first 8 letters (s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d) Justin introduces and teaches the unique sound each letter makes.
We received this feedback from a happy customer:
"I have just bought the Justin's World Lettersounds app, it is great. Finally, a really good app that does the letter sounds and not the letter names!! The letter names just confuse a child when they are learning phonics. I have already recommended this app to all my friends with pre-school children."
WHAT’S IN THE APP?
Say hello to Justin as he introduces the fun…“So tap on a letter that makes a sound, let’s take a look at we’ve found!”
What’s Justin going to pull out of the magic box? Well, there’s a pink pig, an amazing apple and a talking tiger, to name just a few.
All this learning is then followed by an interactive game to test and extend understanding. Choose the right letter to build a word and watch it come to life.
Find the right letter to make an angry ant, a slithering snake or even a paddling penguin…
The final section is a multi choice game to add more fun and consolidation. Find the three words that start with the letter that makes a “t” sound. Get it right and the flash cards come to life with their own animation.
Are you ready to play?
Then it’s over to you, pick a letter and let the learning begin.

Category has been refined so app will appear in the Kids Category
Kids loved it :)
Bought it for my 9 year old with verbal apraxia and he loved it-much better doing letter sounds with Justin than boring mum.
Took it into his special school and it went down a treat with the kids there too.
Now can we please have extra picture cards, apps working towards, covering all the phases of letters and sounds strategy and this mummy will be one happy bunny :0) xx
Now just got to brush up and match my signing up to the words, happy days x
Fab start, looking forwards to more great apps!
I am a childminder and have been working on a different letter each week with the little boy I look after.... He loves the app :) cant wait for the next set of phonic sounds to be available! Great for getting them ready for school
Only 8 letters
Agree with other reviewers - poor value for a paid app. And they know it too, or it would be clear in the app description that it was only 8 letters. Had I known I would have kept looking at other apps. You can't even buy more letters/sounds, so that really is it. Disappointing because Justin was about the only person to get my daughter remotely interested in learning her letters!
