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.

Great but freezes a lot

My son loves many of the exercises in this app. He has just turned 2 and finds it entertaining and is always excited to play it. However, during an average 20 minutes session you can expect at least 3 freezes on loading... This means you have a manually kill the app, this doesn’t sound too bad, but you then have to enter your password and then navigate to where you left off, this is extremely annoying and really disturbs the learning process and fun. Please sort it out!

Best in class - by a mile

I’ve downloaded tons of apps to help teach our little boy how to read. They all do an OK job, but he quickly got bored, and didn’t seem to learn.

Enter Reading Eggs; it’s a game changer. The entire app is gamified in a way that’s really appealing to kids.

Not only are the games fun, he’s actually learning, quickly, and loves the games. They’re diverse, and the learning curve is just perfect.

The only criticism I have of the app, is that I feel £6.99 a month is a little much for an app of this kind. That’s Netflix money, who produce millions of pounds worth of new content each month.

Personally, I believe the pricing should be closer to £1.99-£2.99 a month, in order to make this accessible to the masses. Many families will not be able to budget another £6.99 a month.

But the content, the app itself, the levels, game design, it’s fantastic.
