What's New in Version 1.8
This update provides full support for iOS 8.
Best app you can get for your child!
I swear this app has taught my daughter to read by 2.8 years old. I got it for her when she about 1.5 and it used to be all about the phonetics. I wanted her to learn the phonetics of all the letters and the sounds it makes while dragging the letters does that. Also, it impresses people when your 1.5 year old looks like she knows how to spell "catastrophe". Cut to tonight when I got her a post Christmas book "Go Dog Go" by Dr. Seuss and she effing started reading!!! I had no idea she could read but she had never seen this book and she started reading it word for word and my wife an I were in actual shock. I immediately recorded it.
We had fears she was learning slowly and now I am planning on which school at MIT to send her! ;) seriously, what a great app. I am sure we owe all of this ability to this app and I decided to write a review to express our happiness. I very rarely write reviews and never this long so please, go help out America and make your child smarter by getting him or her this app. I don't even mean that with hyperbole. It's amazing! Well worth whatever I paid for it. Don't know why I wasted money on hooked on phonics of which I never use. Thanks thanks thanks thanks!!!!!
In the long run, not impressed.
This app is cute, no mistaking it. However, I do not recommend it and dissuade others from presenting it to their kids.
Though fun and well intended, it misinforms developing minds _how_ to sound out letters as one would for stringing the sounds together for reading. (The Endless Reader app does not correct this.)
Having realized the confusion caused via this teaching model our daughter no longer plays with this application. And, despite subsequent teaching presented to retrain her awareness and not having played the app in months, our five year old continues to express letter sound habits learned from this app. For example, when sounding out letters in a word, she'll tell us the sound of "L" is "la la la la la la la".
In addition, the fact the letters can be placed in any order, rather than only left to right, created confusion. Lastly, presenting everything in capital letters didn't facilitate accurate use or awareness of the alphabet.
Again, the app is wonderfully clever and fun. She loved playing with it. Hindsight informs, however, that its cuteness and entertainment value are not worth the habits learned.
We downloaded Endless ABC when my son was about 2 1/2. He is now 4 years old. I am so impressed by how well designed the app is. The graphics are beautiful and the little vignettes for each word are so entertaining that my son would do them over and over in one sitting. The words used are advanced and fairly frequently updated; the definitions of them easy to understand - even the sounds are pleasant. I love how the letters make their sounds as the child’s finger drags them across the screen. The sound changes appropriately depending on how it sounds in that word (long or short “A” sound, for example).
In short, I am a huge fan. I downloaded Endless Reader and Endless Numbers without a hesitation because of how great this app is - and have yet to be disappointed.
