***** 24x7digital's SightWords app has been featured as an iTunes App Store Staff Pick!
Help your young learner master the most frequently used words in the English language!
A child who can recognize just 8 of 10 words in a sentence can typically understand its meaning! "Sight words" often cannot be illustrated via simple pictures or sounded out according to regular phonetic decoding rules, thus they need to be learned and recognized "on sight". Our SightWords app is a handy way to encourage a child's mastery of their sight words either as part of a structured reading program at school, or as an impromptu study session when standing in line at the grocery store.
SightWords Pro contains a selection of over 1,600+ sight words which comprises up to 85% of the text in a child's early reading materials -- comprehensively compiled from Dolch, Fry, Pinnell-Fountas, UK, and many other high-frequency word lists. Choose a pre-defined flash card word list, or build and save custom flash card lists to match what is taught in the classroom. Add custom words and record your own pronunciations. Mark flash cards with stars or flags. Flash cards respond to swipes and taps. Shake your device to shuffle the words. Beautiful voice-pronunciations for all included words.

Ratings and Reviews
Great learning tool!
This is one of the better learning apps I have downloaded for my 6 year old son. I love that you can create your own lists and even record your voice if the word is not in the system already (there are hundreds) We take books our son is learning to read and make lists out of the hard words soon he has mastered the book and gains confidence in his reading ability.
The only reason I only gave 4 stars is the "shake to shuffle" feature is annoying as a 6 year old is bound to accidentally reset his list rather frequently. Would love an update that would allow this feature to be disabled.
Simple but functional
Got this app to use with my first grader. There were a lot of other options, several more playful, but this won. First, many of the other apps were way more expensive. Second, this had way more word lists— dolch, fry, uk, au, legacy, and more. It was by far the most comprehensive I saw. I have a few other apps that function more as games, this one is simple mastery. It works, and I am very happy with it.
Love, love, love this app! As a reading teacher I would recommend this app to teachers, parents and grandparents! My grand children ages 3-7 love using this app. I loaded it with their level and they like getting stars after they master words!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
