Phonics with Phonzy - Practice letter sounds and words aloud! is an early literacy educational app. Phonzy is an engaging 3D character who demonstrates correct pronunciation of phonic letter sounds and words and encourages kids to practice aloud!
* Phonzy demonstrates pronunciation of all the phonics sounds and associated words using highly detailed mouth, teeth and tongue movements in 3D
* Phonzy reacts to your child’s voice encouraging them to practice aloud (Note Phonzy cannot yet identify incorrect pronunciation!)
* Engaging original artwork
* Fun interactions and activities with Phonzy, to keep kids practicing
* Parents and teachers can monitor progress and listen back to the child’s pronunciation
* Kid friendly user interface
* No 3rd party advertising
The focus of the app is to demonstrate correct pronunciation and encourage practice aloud! So while Phonzy knows when users are talking (he responds to your voice), he doesn’t yet understand what is being said (so may acknowledge incorrect pronunciation!). In order to improve the app, so that Phonzy can recognize correct pronunciation, we collect audio recordings to build better speech technology that we feel will really improve the service for all users.

App will not work
This app loaded and allowed me to login but doesn’t move past the first screen. I click the play button and a small gray bubble pops up and then nothing. I have to restart the app as it is frozen and will not allow me to go back to the home screen.
This app is a keeper!!
I am so glad I watched the little video intro and downloaded this app. It is hard for an app to stand out with all the thousands in the App Store but this one is uniquely appealing. If your child progresses ( or you progress through the sounds for your child) then Phonzy and your child take pictures together as the child imitates Phonzy's expressions, and the camera automatically grabs the funny pictures for your child. The developers care about perfecting this app's usefulness to children, and do gather anonymous audio input data. I agree with their motives in this case. I hope you will give your child the joy of using this app. It is adorable and practical. A lot of love here. The narrater's voice is gentle, slow, and kind too.
Good phonics practice
This is a fun app for practicing sounds. The app utilizes the microphone as well as the camera. The player is expected to repeat the sounds s/he hears Phonzy make. As a reward for a job well-done, the player makes funny faces with Phonzy and photos are captured. The sounds progress from consonants to vowels then diphthongs and digraphs and beyond. The sounds Phonzy makes are phonetically correct—something that is hard to find in apps. Well done!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
