O me I my ,

Not worth your time

I want my $$$ back. This is a joke. Didn’t work from the beginning. Don’t waste your time or money! Totally useless and frustrating not even educational! So disappointed!

Finger swipes don't work well

I like this app, but it's not really useable. The finger swipes only work about 30% of the time. This would be a great app if it worked consistently

7 yr old played it. Kept his attention.

My son can read wonderfully but can't spell well which probably comes down to a phonics issue. I think this will help. It helps him really listen to minor differences in sounds like Oh versus ow.
We're still exploring the app.

Can you make the voice a tad more cheerful? It doesn't need to be over-the-top like a preschool app voice, but this guy sounds like Ferris Beuler's teacher! Anyone? Anyone? Beuler? Really. Make him SMILE as he reads the script, we'll hear the difference.

Thanks for making an app for 2nd grade phonics. It's not easy to find educational apps after preschool.
