The Starfall Free app requires an internet connection. Become a Starfall member to unlock all of the content. The app's offerings will continue to expand as the Starfall Team transitions the popular website's content for delivery to mobile devices.
Starfall is the brain-child of Stephen Schutz. At age 9, Stephen was still struggling to read. What came easily for his peers required many more hours of his work. As a reader, he was consistently toward the bottom of his class. Now a PhD in physics and a successful publisher and artist, Dr. Schutz, with the help of his dedicated team, created Starfall to ensure today's children have resources that can help.
Version 1.26 offers the Classic It's Fun to Read section, including Magic, Poetry, Tongue Twisters, Bird Riddles, Art & Music.

Excellent app for kids
I love the range of activities Starfall has--reading AND math. It lets the child create an avatar of herself/himself. It's also wonderful that there are no ads always popping up like in most other free apps. I'm considering purchasing the full version because this is the best educational kids app I've found so far in my year or so of looking. However, I would prefer to use my iTunes gift cards to purchase. But it looks like currently the only way to buy a full year subscription is to pay $35 on the website, using a credit card or Paypal.
Ignore all those comments below talking about "likes." This app is not social media. It has no "likes." It has nothing to do with Instagram. I don't know why people are spamming the comments talking about irrelevant nonsense. Maybe they get money for it somehow.
Needs new content
My 6 year old daughter has this app and she loves to use it. It has a wide variety of fun games and gets her excited about learning. I love that she actually uses it.
My only complaint is that the app content is repetitive. Each time she plays a game, the equations use the same numbers as the last time she played that game. So, all she has to do is memorize what the answer was last time and she gets the answer. I purchased a year’s subscription thinking the content would be new, but it’s still recycling the same equations.
I also wonder why the website has a different organization than the app. It looks like there are more advanced options on the website and more kindergarten options on the app. I’d like to see some more advanced options on the app, as she uses an iPad.
I know some people don’t like kids/babies using electronics, but my son has been using Starfall since he was about a year and half years old. He is now 2 & a half and he knows all his letters and the sounds they make, his numbers, and loves the songs and activities they have. He’s actually known them for quite a while now, before he even turned 2.
I actually bought the membership for full access to the app and I think it’s worth it! He has learned so much, more than I thought a baby/toddler could learn! 😊
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
