'I was amazed at how quickly my 4 year old son started to improve with his reading using the Read with Phonics app.' - Dan J

'I would be lost without Read with Phonics and have no idea how schools cope without it.' - Mrs Gent

'It is simple, so many apps these days are bold and noisy. Whilst that is sometimes great I find the girls get very distracted from any task they need to complete. Plus after a while I get fed up of hearing the same piece of music for the 4,657,590 time. With no music and no unnecessary graphics Ellie focused on this for a long time! Thank you Read with Phonics!'- Kirsty W

Fun ways to support phonics learning

I found this app to be a fun way to support children’s learning of phonics. The games are simple and easy to use. The progression in each section to read and apply a particular sound is great. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is that when playing on an iPhone, some of the games need to you to drag and drop from the bottom of the screen and this swipes up the iPhone menu which I found annoying. Perhaps move the drag and drop items a little more away from the edge. Other that that a great app which will support the teaching and learning of phonics in school and at home. Would recommend!


Good educational kids app

The app itself is quite good and entertaining. Our 5 year old has been enjoying it for a while. She's quite amused with the little green alien. I only rate it with 3 stars cause I think there's room for improvement on the technical part, since sometimes seems to run a bit slow and the interface is not that much user friendly.



Downloaded this for my son who is struggling with phonics. Found it a great additional aid to the sound mats from school. Plus as it’s game on the phone he seems much more enthusiastic to do it! Plus helps me to know which are the correct sounds too. Keep up the good work!
