This app has been specifically designed for iPhones and iPod Touches.

All the videos are part of this app, so no internet connection is required - making it perfect for in the classroom! To fit the large number of videos onto the app, the visual quality of the video has been reduced to make the MB size as low as possible.

Please note: This app requires iOS 4.2 or later.

TROUBLESHOOTING: A number of users have experienced no sound when initially playing the app content. Please check that you have switched the mute button off at the side of your hand set. Also check that the mute button is setup to be a sound selector rather than a orientation selector. Finally ensure that the volume slider on the video screen is zipped up to full volume. Everybody who has experienced sound issues has had success when following these instructions.

We love this app!

We absolutely love this app. My son is starting to show an interest in letter sounds and can work the app easily himself and loves all of the examples given for each letter sound. The sounds are modelled well and the pictures and words with grapheme in a different colour is engaging for him.

Not working properly on iOS 14

This app doesn’t work properly on iOS 14 (I’ve checked on multiple phones). I hope there will be an update to fix this in the near future?

Outdated video content which looks like from 1980s

Good content but very outdated presentation.
In the world of colours and enhanced graphic tech etc, not sure how a kid would click this app second time. And my daughter didn’t.
