Great and awful, both at once

Could be improved with bug fixes.

On the iPad (mine is an original iPad Air, so not exactly new) it works okay once you get used to its quirks. If it is minimized and then refreshed from a double click (choosing out of your running apps) the sound will be off, but this can be fixed by minimizing it and then restoring it from the icon. It can also be fixed by a hard quit and restart.

On the iPhone [mine is an XR, newish but not too of the line] the sound starts on the intro video, but will be off for all activities. I have not yet found a workaround for this.

My daughter *loves* the activities and games. As long as the sound is working. Her gestures during activities also sometimes minimize the iPad app, so the sound issue is quite frequent there, and it is completely unusable in the phone.

If anyone knows a better workaround (or any workaround for the phone!) please let me know. These have obviously been issues for a while (there are a lot of reviews mentioning audio issues), so while I would like the developers to fix this, I don’t honestly believe they are going to.

I still have 3 weeks left on my free trial month; I haven’t decided if the excellent parts outweigh the terrible parts or not. It’s a frustrating experience.

Developer Response ,

Hi there,

I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this issue.

This issue sometimes occurs when other apps seize control and mute the Reading Eggs app. There are a couple of easy solutions to this issue which vary depending on the model of your iPad.

For newer models such as iPad Air or iPad Pro please follow these steps:

1.Open the Reading Eggs app.

2.Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to display the iPad’s control centre. (the same one you would use to put your iPad into flight mode)

3.Locate the bell shaped mute button, this will have a line through it indicating the app has been muted.

4.Tap the bell mute icon and the sound will return to the program.

For older models of iPads:

1.Open the settings on your iPad

2.Open general settings and locate ‘Use Side Switch to’

3.If ‘Mute’ is selected please switch it to ‘Lock Rotation’ and vice versa, if ‘Lock Rotation’ is selected please switch it to ‘Mute’

4.Ensure that the lock switch on the side of the iPad is not in the mute position.

5.Reopen the app and the sound should play as intended.

If you continue to experience issues, please email us at and our friendly customer service team can then help you.

Kind Regards,
Reading Eggs Team

Great app

My daughter loves both reading eggs and math seeds. It’s a great app with lots of levels and games to keep kids engaged. Mathseeds seems to assume a base level of literacy though which is not great for younger children. My daughter for example is 3 and loves maths, she knows all her numbers and shapes but can’t read the words when the numbers are written in words (eg seven instead of 7), making it very difficult for her to complete some levels without help, though she can answer when it’s read to her.
(Edit: I of course sit with her while she does the activities but for the mathseeds levels that rely on the written word, I basically need to do them for her which seems silly when her number knowledge is sufficient for her to move on through the levels and it’s her literacy skills holding her back.)

We’ve not experienced the sound issue others mention, though we’ve definitely noticed the app is not as responsive on older devices as it is on newer ones. My main complaint would be that it’s annoying how the app logs out basically every time you close the app. It would be great if you could stay permanently logged in.

Hi There,

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that your daughter is enjoying the program.

In the initial parts of the program, we do strongly recommend parents to sit with their children to complete the lessons. This is because of the fact that kids are unable to read the instructions.

You are required to login each time you access the program through the App as this is a security feature.

Please contact customer service at for further queries.

Kind Regards
Reading Eggs Team

Just taught our 2 1/2 year old daughter to read

This app is the one you want !!! If you wanna teach your child to read. Our daughter can now read very basic books due to this program. It’s one hell of a grind, but our daughter is 2 1/2. So a 4 or 5 year old would smash it out a lot faster, but seeing a 2 1/2 year old read is mind blowing. Hey Dev, just one thing that I would like to add is the off shoots of your program make it a bit busy, less is more !!! If you have too many distractions from the main program, kids will gravitate towards that and we have what is called ‘Opportunity Cost’. Your program is great, it works, our 2 1/2 year old daughter is proof of that ! And I think you gotta find ways for these off shoots to come back to the main program.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your great review and detailed feedback! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave this information, and your generous star rating! We will certainly pass this information to our development team. We are so glad to hear your daughter has found a love for reading with the program and we hope you continue to enjoy it together! Happy Eggsploring!
