As a follow-up to Endless Alphabet, set the stage for early reading success with Endless Reader! This app introduces "sight words", the most commonly used words in school, library, and children's books. Kids need to recognize these words by sight in order to achieve reading fluency. Recognizing sight words is advantageous for beginning readers because many of these words have unusual spelling, cannot be sounded out using phonics knowledge, and often cannot be represented using pictures.
Kids will have a blast learning sight words and their context and usage with the adorable Endless monsters. Each word features an interactive word puzzle with letters that come alive, and then a sentence puzzle with words that become what they describe. See the word "dog" as a barking dog, and the word "up" reach for the sky!
** NOTE: You must be online and have sufficient disk space while running the app to get all words in the app. **
- 6 words free to try with additional word packs available for purchase.
- Delightful animations reinforce sight recognition of words in a fun and interactive way.
- Word puzzles reinforce spelling using lower-case letters and the sentence puzzles teach definition and usage (in addition to sight recognition).
- 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus makes letters and words react in an extra special way!
- Endless Reader was designed with your children in mind. There are no high scores, failures, limits or stress. Your children can interact with the app at their own pace.
Minor bug fixes.

The friendly monsters from the popular app Endless Alphabet are back to help children learn how to read. Kids can jump right into this intuitive app, building sight words letter by letter and watching them come alive to reflect their meaning, with “dog” wagging a tail and “cake” sprouting candles. As little ones place each word in a sentence and watch a cuddly character act out its meaning, they’ll gain early word-recognition and reading skills while having tons of parent-approved fun.
Great Until You Switch Phones
I purchased the first set of words and my son loved them. It actually helps with his speech impediment and makes it fun. The app was awesome until we got a new phone. My son got an early gift from his grandma (his very own phone) and I put him on my family sharing plan. All the learning apps I had purchased for him we were able to upload on to his new phone and pick up where we left off except this one. It’s showing all his levels are locked and for him to continue I have to purchase the same levels I just purchased not too long ago. I feel this app should allow us to transfer to another device just as the other apps did. I have to give my phone to my son just for him to use this one app which makes it inconvenient when I also use my phone. If it hadn’t been for this I would have given this app 5 stars.

Autistic/Nonverbal Child Approved
My son is 4 and has mild autism but for the most part is non verbal. I downloaded the free trial of this (and numbers) and he adored it. Coupled with his other therapies he receives at school, he began talking a few words, recognizing his alphabet and almost saying all the letters- that's 3 weeks after he started playing this app. It works for him. It keeps his attention- the constant interactive nature along with repetition of the letters, their sound in that particular word, and the whole word itself clicks in his brain. I ended up buying the full version and he doesn't mind if I lock him in with Guided Access on his iPad. Awesome job on this app!
