Great app when it works

I got this for my two children (5 & 3). The content and layout of the app is fantastic. The kids are engaged and like playing, plus there’s lots of different sections to keep them interested.

I have two issues with the app which may affect whether I keep using it. Firstly it crashes fairly frequently, usually freezing on the loading pages. This means my kids having to repeat lessons which irritates them. Secondly there doesn’t seem to be any way to stop them from going into each other’s profiles and messing things up. They use different devices but can easily access each other’s profile from the reading eggs app. My youngest keeps changing his sisters avatar and my eldest plays on the beginner pack in his settings. It’s a big problem and unless it can be fixed there’s not much point in keeping the app for my youngest, which is a shame as he was quickly grasping the lessons.

Every child deserves Reading eggs!

My daughter is now four and is the youngest in her reception class but has had no problem at all with the work set out for them to do. Her reading age has been 5.5 years for about 6 months now and is very confident and competent . She has used the app since she was 19 months first understanding colours and enjoying one to one time with me ( her mummy). We also bought the largest books set. The map with stickers were a great reward and encouraging and the flash cards in the car are a great way to pass the time. The writing books we bought twice and her writing is improving weekly. We are not pushy parents and follow her lead as to how long she spends doing any of the activities. Finally Math seeds is outstanding and is fantastic again moving forward at my daughters pace. I can’t thank the creators of Reading eggs and their friendly team enough for this outstanding educational enjoyable tool to my daughters l daughters learning life! Thank you!

I want to like it...

This has SO much potential but the actual tech is letting you down badly. The iPhone, iPad and browser apps crash constantly. And to make it worse, they don’t even save your login so you have to type your full email and password every time. If you could allow Touch ID that would at least speed things up.

Cue two very frustrated three yr olds, whose games freeze on the loading screen constantly. If you can sort out the issues, you’d get a long-term customer out of me because we are home educating. But if it doesn’t improve, I can’t see me continuing.

I’m frustrated because I really want this for my kids. Please sort it out!

Developer Response ,

Hello, we are sorry to her you have been experiencing tech issues whilst using the app. please email so we can get this investigated.
