Customer Reviews

Very nice but needs a few more settings

Being able to add and delete words is great. The list of words is huge and It's easy to create your own category/word list for words You want a child to practice before reading a story. The words included with the app are at a variety of difficulty levels, which is both an advantage and a problem. I would like to be able to arrange the words according to my preference so I could group words by level and/or hide words rather than delete them. A work around is to mark words as favorites, which has its own category at the end of the list and can later be changed as a child progresses. In the game portion, I would like to be able to turn off the encouragement phrases. They are too frequent and get to be annoying. Turning off sound in settings does not turn these off. Overall, this app gives you plenty to work with in clear phonetic categories.

No customer support

I was excited when I found this app because it allows my dyslexic students to get the extra practice that they need. Unfortunately, the sound does not work in the game mode for customized lists, and I make lots of customized lists. Despite Alligator Apps' professions of excellent customer support, they have not responded to any of my e-mails on this issue. It may be an easy fix, but since the company does not provide support, there is no way for me to know. I had hoped to ask parents to purchase this app for the kids' iPads, but I can't recommend it because of the poor support. A shame, because is does have potential.

Better than flash cards!

Creating, maintaining and carrying flash cards around is, for me, an obnoxious burden. Now, I don't have to worry about any of that thanks to apps like this. They've done all the design work for us parents and teachers. I am so thankful for this huge library of phonics flash cards I don't have to worry about making and losing! I love the clear, simple design and the fact that kids can record themselves saying the word. Thank you for creating this useful app!
