Ok let's get the bad points out of the way, the American accent as provided is dreadful but you can turn that off, this also says its for age 4 and above but some of the cards are ridiculously difficult but if you take the time this can be customised to the level of your child.
And the good bits, well my son is seven and dyslexic (as am I) and reading is a huge challenge, we work through whatever sounds his reading recovery teacher is working on and he has great fun recording himself saying these words in silly voices. Once he has gone through the words in that section it automatically switches off (no more twenty mins of work and getting nothing done he just needs to get to the end of the section) I have tailored some words to suit his needs added new ones but have not removed any as he is loving the challenge.
Add the set words your child has to learn at school for added fun all I need to do is figure out how to save my new recordings and I will never get him off it.
Works well. Fun learning
Despite negative reviews I have tried this app and found it to be a super addition to my phonic resources. The American accent is smoothed and allows the full sound of vowels to be identified...more so than many regional uk accents would do. The range of phonemes is impressive and the separate treatment of graphemes is vital in supporting awareness for reading and articulation.
I have been able to fully customise the recording on some flash cards so parents / teachers can put their own voice over the default accent if they wish to eliminate the us/uk accent issue.
All round, I find it works well and is a great find being free.
At first glance this looked unsuitable, the accent was American, not a lot of use in English schools, but then I found the settings screen and was amazed to see that I could alter all the words to my own voice.
This alone makes this app worth the time and effort. You can delete and add your own words, change to game mode and alter almost the whole layout.
Not found how the favourites link works yet but I am sure I will soon.
If you are prepared to put in the effort to make the changes this app I think will be worth it.
