WHY “POCKET ALPHABET - LETTERS & SOUNDS”?
The first step in teaching a child to read is to teach that child the BASICS of the alphabet - specifically the ABILITY TO LINK SOUNDS TO LETTERS AND NAMING THE LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET.
Created in conjunction with teaching professionals, “Pocket Alphabet – Letter & Sounds” consists of a set of beautifully animated flash cards; each is fully interactive with a vocal response to every touch, be it a letter, illustration or word. Most touch responses lead to amusing interactive animations to capture your child’s interest, sustain their motivation and reinforce their learning in imaginative and exciting ways;

Lovely to look at, slight pronunciation changes necessary to make it perfect
It's fantastic that there's a British English version, and I also like the pictures and animation.
I only wished the speakers had really used a clear and correct way of saying the sounds in a precise 'phonics' way and not sometimes correctly, sometimes saying it 'somehow'.
A couple of the sounds are spoken with an 'uh' at the end: instead of saying mmm the voice says 'muh' for m.
P: Letter is spoken a bit like 'pay'
E: letter is spoken like ay in pay,
O: not in in free version included but picture of owl, so sound and word don't come together ( octopus works better, phonics-wise)
x: letter & sound are spoken 'ex'
I still think of buying the full version although I'm a bit dreading to say always 'but at school you need to say mmm not muh'. I also would wish for a second version with digraphs - owl would be great for 'ow' not for 'o' (which I don't see as a critic but just ad a wish as there's a lack of resources for that next step).
As a non native speaker & primary school teacher & mum of reception class child I'm looking for help with learning sounds & letters including pronunciation but haven't found the perfect app or toy yet, although this app had the potential to be fabulous with some slight changes.
