Ratings and Reviews
I was hesitant about spending so much money on this app but it’s been fantastic.
Because it is how my daughter learns the phonics at school and so straight forward to use she will quite happily sit and work her way through the letters with no help from us needed.
My son has extremely limited access to my phone as I’m trying to resist letting him engage with too many apps and games as he is only just turned 5. I paid for this app and it’s partner jolly phonics games, as I though at entry level screen time it might be fun and also as a bonus educational - however - it is so bloody boring! Seriously. He is doing fairly well at school and understands some basic phonemes so it wasn’t due to lack of understanding. The platform is just so incredibly repetitive and there is no real engagement or reward or excitement. I think he would rather I wrote some words on the back of a wooden spoon and waved it about. He would probably rather do anything, and that says a lot as he is so eager to see what phones and games are all about. Looking for alternatives.
The content and interface are very limited and you can’t use the app on multiple tablets.
For that money you can get better content which is actually fun for kids.
