A really good app

This app has its flaws, which is fine - it’s not superhuman, or created by a superhuman? Despite these, which are only in some of the words offered without deep enough explanation and maybe the method of a ‘magic e’, it’s great for kids who aren’t as purely visual. What I mean is it displays a method of multi-media (whilst being all in one place) so your child can learn in different ways and games. The maths leaves a bit to be desired as the questions require some reading at a level that doesn’t match up with the same age (that could use looking at), but all in all, it’s really benefitted my daughter. She’s not purely visual and needs a varied stimulus to grasp onto things easily. It’s certainly enabled me to move more efficiently and fairly between here and my other three children (all different abilities, ages and curriculums) this lockdown, where my time has been stretched with home schooling. I don’t want to neglect one child to the others detriment.
Her reading is really coming on and it has increased her confidence. We will continue to use it and I may use it with my youngest as and when the time comes if I think it’ll benefit his style of learning too?

Great Learning but Flawed Tech.

I have used the Reading Eggs app with various children over a number of years so I know it to have good content that children enjoy and can enable successful learning. However, it is often let down by technical bugs that lead to frustration (not what you want with a child you’re trying to motivate to read!). This is compounded by the fact that there is no easy way of reporting persistent bugs so that they might be quickly rectified - if anything, there is only resistance or refusal from Reading Eggs’ technical team.

The app has many aspects (Reading Eggs, Reading Eggspress, Fast Phonics, MathSeeds and an extensive library are some that I’ve taken advantage of), so it offers excellent value for money. I would suggest to the developers though that the older aspects, such as Reading Eggspress, could benefit from a more mature format, with fewer repetitive noises and animated distractions (which might otherwise motivate younger users).

Altogether, although a much liked/used app, I’m fearful that it’s going to become defunct to the other more technically reliable and crisper offerings currently flooding the market - I’m not sure Reading Eggs will be able to keep up sadly :(

My 4yr old loves this after a few weeks of playing it and could happily play on it all day!!
She sees it more as a game rather than actual learning which is all you want, as a parent.. She thinks it’s very fun, funny and engaging.
Initially she was a little annoyed it was so basic because she knew the letters and frustrated by the repetition of doing the games again and again before reaching the next level, but it didn’t last too long & now she’s on level 7 already in a couple of weeks 😊

The only problem that we have sometimes is the sound cutting out, so I then have to help her a little more to know what she needs to do because it doesn’t say what she needs to do. Usually it doesn’t last long after a couple of levels, or reloading the app. But still a mild annoyance. Well worth the price though! It’s really helping her learn to read well and quickly change through books at school which she recently started a month and a half ago. She’s focused on the reading section and we haven’t tried the maths section and my 14month old is a little young to try the younger section, but we’ll soon try them out too!
