Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded the app in May of 2013. My son was around 20 months at the time and it was a free Mother’s Day download. He played and played with it. Even when other apps didn’t keep his attention, this one did. I don’t know if it’s the reason he started pre-school reading on a first grade level, but I believe it had a lot to do with that. He wasn’t the kid that liked to sit still for books to be read to him so I cannot take the credit. I have advised many of my friends to purchase or download this app for that reason. Thanks so much for helping my now 7 year old to read. ❤️

This is so wonderful to hear! Thank you for sharing your son's experience with us. We are so happy that he always gravitated to our Learn to Read app lessons! Best of luck to him as he continues his education.
Very cute, fun, and works wonders!
The hooked on phonics app is great! I recommend it to everyone because the little games and videos are really engaging. The achievement section sets goals and there are SO many ebooks included. My daughter loves playing every night and I’ve seen such a huge improvement in her interest in reading and her reading skills. The subscription options are well worth it. Hooked on phonics has been around since I was a little girl and it’s still just as great. I had a problem with the app once and customer support was pretty helpful and attentive too.

Love to hear it! Thanks so much for your feedback. We're happy your kids are having a fun time learning to read.
Best learn to read app ever
I am now 10 and used this when I was about 4 and loved it! I am now in accelerated reading in my school and am one of the top readers in my school! I would be in normal classes without this app! I recommend this to anyone that has a kid (like myself) that is struggling with reading or doesn’t like it. (I no longer struggle but that is because of this app)
Best (non gaming) app ever!
