Ratings and Reviews
This is a great program, but it takes very long to load. I spam the download button and even when I be really patient it goes really sssssssllllllloooooooowwwwwww. If there is anything you can do about this, I would greatly appreciate this. I would also like to let the 21 or 22 levels go up to at least 30. It makes more sense. The main reason I wrote this review was that the app uploads ssssssllllllooooowwwwly. Greatly appreciated if you could do something about it. Thanks!
Your fourth grade fan,
[rather not say]
This program was not intended to replace teachers. Many times people complain not realizing what the real issue is. When students struggle, as learning to read can cause. This program monitors, encourages, and helps them. If they continue to struggle, teachers are notified and even given tools to help address the issues.
This doesn’t mean they do it and if your student is showing lots of frustration then you should talk with their teacher.
The program is one of the few I’ve seen, as a teacher and parent, that targets specific reading, phonics, and phoneme skills.
There IS work involved with learning to read and it can be more challenging with a reluctant reader but this program is WAY above the rest in engagement and targeted help!
It tries, but app is broken
We use this app because it is required by my child’s school. However the letters are cut off at the bottoms in multiple areas. I’ve submitted tickets, the developers have not yet responded, it’s been over 3 weeks. It’s not encouraging for beginning learners when they continue to get the wrong answer to something they actually understand.
Overall the app is kinda slow. I do believe in time it’ll be more engaging and fun, but honestly overall it’s just boring. My daughter will sometimes just hit random buttons because she’s getting bored.
Hopefully the letter issues will get fixed. If this is something you are considering to add to your homeschool routine I would consider another app. It would be nice to see as a parent what and how the app tracks progress. All in all I’d give this a limp thumbs up.
Developer Response ,
Can you try changing the text size on your iPad? You can do this by going to your settings, and selecting General > Accessibility > Larger Text and then move the slider.
If that does not resolve the issue, you can reach out to the Lexia support team by calling 800-507-2772. We will be happy to help!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
