I have been trying anything I find to try to teach my boys from home. Hooked on Phonics is the best I have found. Would recommended to anyone.
This is the best app we found so far for learning to read at home.
The app has been great for our 5 year old to continue learning to read from home. 👍👍👍
My daughter likes the funny little characters and listening to the letter songs. I like that they are helping her learn the letter sounds. We just got our first workbook and she like that too. She keeps asking if she can play letters.
I have been using it with my 3 year old daughter. She loves it. Every evening she would ask to play “Hooped on Phonics”. She is making big progress in reading and enjoying it more than any other reading activity. We haven’t experienced any glitches. The app works very well for us. It’s worth the money! There was a time where it got too repetitive and boring, but after a couple of weeks she asked to play it again and things moved on. Our favorite part is music! All songs are incredibly well done! Listening a song of the next lesson is the biggest reward for my daughter. Great quality material all together. I look forward to watching my daughter’s progress. The five start review above was from two years ago. Now I re-subscribed for my younger child - what a disappointment!!! Please bring the good old hooked on phonics back. The animations are terrible. Why did you change everything? It was perfect before! I don’t want to give this app bad rating, because you have good content, just bring the old format and animations back! Please!
My son Scott loves this App. He enjoys the songs and animals. They really seem to help him learn the letter sounds. Whenever I let him use the app a big smile appears. The other night I unfortunately had to tell him it was bedtime and he pleaded with me for “just 15 more minutes, please”. I couldn’t say no and watched as he completed another level. Thanks Hooked on Phonics!
My son enjoys learning using this app and we see a fast improvement. Thank you Hooked On Phonics!
This update works well. In the previous version, the app started with the Big Reading Show, which was entertaining but I’m not sure it really enhanced reading skills. The new pre-reader section seems to have replaced it. There are still videos but there appears to be much more learning.
I used to love Hooked on Phonics (using it for years!) but once we updated the app, all our paid content disappeared! I now only have access to the free content and a 7-day trial. What happened to all the levels we paid for? Very disappointing.
My 4yo used to loved the program and app. She was starting to read small words In a short period of time, but ever since the last update she hates and dreads using it. Worst updates ever.
