Ratings and Reviews
Great program needs to be better localized for US market
This is a wonderful, phonics based reading program that has done wonders for my 6yo son’s reading in a week. He wakes up asking to play it and I really amazed at his progress. I would absolutely recommend this program to other parents although it does need some updates to really work for a US audience of children.
I believe that this program started in Australia and many of the voiceovers are still in an Australian accent. This can be hard for a young American child to understand when they are already concentrating on matching spoken to written words. This issue strikes me as particularly easy to fix as other voiceovers are already in an American accent. The other thing that should be localized is that the program repeatedly shows a picture of “chips” or, as we call them, French Fries and calls them chips. This is confusing especially because in the very next lesson a bag of potato chips are called chips so they did make that change (probably as it didn’t require reanimation) instead of still calling them crisps. I had to keep telling my son what they meant by “chips” in each picture. I have a feeling that the American version of this program is a work in progress being updated on a rolling basis.
Great lessons... but kids get accidentally signed out all the time
Once the kids are doing their lessons, everything is great. It’s getting to that point that is often the problem. We have three children signed up on a family plan. When one child finishes, the next child needs to press “Logout” to get back to the dashboard and select their avatar. There’s a bug in that Logout button where, if you accidentally tap it twice (easy for young, small hands), you get entirely logged out of the app and the parent has to sign in again. One of my kids brings this to me to log in EVERY DAY. More recently, I’m wondering if there’s another log out bug, as my kids swear that they’re not pressing the logout button twice, yet it’s taking them to a page where we need to log in and then log in again! I brought this up to support, and their only response was to use the child-specific password that takes you directly to their avatar. This doesn’t work because then I would need three different iPads for my three children. Four year olds should not have to deal with passwords. There is nothing particularly high-stakes about the data this app is storing, so I’d appreciate if it could keep us logged in a little longer.

Good reading app but needs a tutorial or customer service
Downloaded this app for my son because our school said it was a great learning tool. It is a great learning tool but my son got so frustrated with it because every time he used it, the app would start him back at the very beginning no matter how far he got. I tried the app and went for levels, my wife tried it and went for levels, and even grandma tried it with the same result. We emailed and we called with no response on multiple occasions. We then tried to create a new login for my son and had the same result. Finally at a back to school night a teacher (not my sons) explained that you have to hit the bye link for it to save progress. Now my son is super excited that he is making it through the levels. Great app really has helped him with learning to read but if the customer service would have just emailed us back or called it would have been nice, maybe envelope helpful. The reason for the 2 star is the frustration we went through, that my son went through, just to have someone tell us what to do that doesn’t work for the company. Other than that, it would be a 4 star. Read on kids your the future of this world!
