  • Want a company to steal your money? Download this app

    By Shiriteli
    I downloaded the app, but never logged into it! I don't even know how this app looks like other than the log in screen - and was charged a monthly subscription fee. For what?!?! Such a scam.
  • Amazing resource for early readers!

    By Agrinb
    We tried a lot of reading apps, but this one has been the one that my daughter used the most. It’s been 5+ months and she still uses it every week. It builds reading and spelling skills, but there is sooo much more.To start, it builds upon material from before instead of other apps that have random lessons. It takes the child through every letter sound, then phonics then sight words, etc. It has a lot of variety for first time readers with the new words. My daughter learned really quickly and had a lot of fun using it- she asked to use it every day. The best part is that you can follow the pathway. But you don’t have to. You can just do lessons on your own. The other nice thing is that it has SOOO much content: -Phonics and Stories for every letter -Letter tracing games and letter puzzles -Power words and sight words -Bedtime Stories -Lots of stories for animals and nature -Even classics like Where the wild things are and Chicka Chicka Boom The brain games is another area she loves: -Sight words flash cards -Memory games -Letter hunt -What’s different -Puzzles
  • Lefties version would be nice.....

    By 2masters
    We just downloaded this app today. Im a lefty mother of a 3 year old lefty and it would be great to have a left-handed option when setting up the child’s personal profile. For example, when tracing the letters A and O, a lefty traces them backward from what the instruction states. It would be so nice to be praised for tracing the letters in a way that is most comfortable for a lefty.
  • Unable to access or cancel and have been charged $$$$$! DO NOT SIGN UP!

    By Hannah Cole Dahar
    We signed up via a free trial. Once the trial was over we were then unable to access the app and now billed every cycle with no way to cancel. We have been billed @ $100 for an app that has not worked for us. Now our child has outgrown it and we are still stuck with it! DO NOT SIGN UP!!!!!!
  • Your child may learn to lisp

    By Ank the tank
    I have two complaints. I was really excited to try this for my 3yo who reads at a first grade level. Unfortunately, the reading level was started with letter identification. I was going to see if I could change his age to fix that but I didn’t bother. I didn’t bother because the child’s voice programmed into the app that tells stories has a lisp! My child tends to pick up on accents and I know he will imitate the child’s lisp. I don’t understand why the developer of this app thought it was a good idea to use a child’s voice who has a lisp. I plan to find another app and I will cancel this subscription.
  • The app keeps crashing.

    By Jdifhgfh
    Every time I open the app it loads then crashes. I’m certainly not paying $7.99 a month for something I can’t use. Hopefully this issue is resolved soon or I will be deleting and canceling.
