Great app


This is the kind of app I needed for my son!!!! Can you add more word families like ab, just all of them

Good app, some improvements needed


Let me start by saying I have taught both 1st and 2nd grade - the ages this app is targeted to. Overall, I think isort words is a great app. The amount of word families included is substantial, and the variety of sorting games offered is good for engaging the learner.

However, I think the words move way too fast in the explore mode. Because of this, it's more random selection than intentional word building. Also, I think it would be very helpful to see the lists of words as they are sorted (or at the very least after the sort is finished). More beneficial if you could go back and read the sorted words.

All in all a decent app, just needs those improvements to increase the learning benefits.

Brilliant idea, great improvements in the works!

Reading Buddies

Almost the perfect app for phonics word sorts. Some kids need to hear the words spoken to reinforce their reading skills. Also would like to see Level 1 have just single syllable words. According to the developer, a huge update is in the works which will make the app much more useful, especially for beginning and struggling readers.
