Customer Reviews

Great tool for reading comprehension

I am so excited about this app! This is just what my daughter needs to practice getting the main idea in reading comprehension. So much of reading practice is the phonics and fluency, but it's hard to find a good product that helps students get main ideas and comprehension. This app gives the reading material in small enough chunks to not overwhelm but asks great questions to get them thinking about the passage. Highly recommend!


I always hope to leave positive reviews for a company; however, my final rating will depend on customer service. I am a 4th grade ELA teacher; I use I-Ready Reading curriculum. I purchased the $35 app bundle with my own funds hoping to use this resource for centers. Unfortunately, the 4th grade bundle is useless to me. I skipped ahead to the apps' highest levels hoping for more rigorous content. I find that this resource is far to easy, even for students who receive accommodations. I have requested an exchange or credit from the company. I would re-purchase the product at a more challenging level.

Greatest app todate!

I use this app with my guided reading group and the variety in the bundle keeps them motivated and interested. Thank you again and again - you've got yourself a customer for life!!
