****Fun with R is great for fun and ongoing practice of the ’R’ sound. (Nikki Heyman, SLP)
The Fun with R app offers an intensive program for children to practice articulation of the most difficult to produce sound-R. The R stimuli in this app are organized in a way that allows speech and language pathologists to choose either traditional or phonetically consistent approach to R remediation.
Fun with R app includes the following over 2000 audio recorded stimuli:
-R in the initial, medial and final positions of words at the word, phrase and sentence level
- R-blends in the initial position of words at the word, phrase and sentence level
- Vocalic R: air, ar, ear, er, ire, or in the initial, medial, final positions of words at the word, phrase and sentence level

Ratings and Reviews
I love this app. It has tons of targets especially for the prevocalic /r/. I can keep track of multiple clients in one session and easily transfer targeted /r/ sounds from one client to the next. Keeps data for each client.
Fun with R
This program covers all the variations of "r words" from initial "r" to blends and the various vocalic forms. There are 3 games which the children enjoy while practicing their R words. Scoring consists of "Good, almost, and unacceptable" buttons. Good scorekeeping for data collection.
A little embarrassing
I love the way this app breaks down vocalic r. However I was disappointed when I saw Mount Rushmore listed as North Dakota. Mount Rushmore is in Rapid City South Dakota.
Explaining this to a student was kinda embarrassing to say that this app made this mistake.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
