This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Yolaroo Alphabet - Spelling and Reading is an excellent way for people of all ages to start learning English.
Yolaroo Alphabet - Spelling and Reading makes learning how to read and spell easy.
Yolaroo Alphabet - Spelling and Reading can be used at home, in the classroom, or in the car on both iPhone and iPad. It is a great use of technology that makes learning and teaching English intuitive.
There are now 14 great activities to help teach over 147 different English words.
Each activity has a different goal to help the learner.
In learning mode the learner can learn words from A to Z using each individual app separately from A-Z or just one letter at a time.
ABC - This activity introduces the letters and the words.

four simple pictures.

The other main part of the app is Challenge Mode.
In Challenge-mode the learner can test their knowledge with 3 different activities. Their high scores are placed on Apple’s Game Center, and they can challenge their friends.
This app is free and will always be completely free, because reading is very important and everyone needs to learn how to read.
