We will see how this app holds up after more use. We just finished the first unit, which was great. I purchased the 2cnd unit bundle, however the app will not allow us to do "play" it yet, so once that issue is settled, I'll give another more in-depth review. Also, do not like the fact that in the app description it didn't say that you only get unit one lesson with one book for free--you have to purchase everything else. The entire program is $49.99 or you can purchase each unit for $4.99 and $.99 per book or the unit with 3 books as a bundle for $6.99. Would've been nice to know this prior to downloading the app. Since we are in between paychecks, couldn't afford more than the 2nd unit for now and my son is very upset since he did so well with the first unit and would like to continue. Like I said, I'll give a more in-depth review when the app will allow us to use the unit purchased and I have more money to buy more units!

This is a great program and my 5 year old enjoyed it. However, only part of the first unit comes free. I would have liked to see an entire unit before deciding to purchase the whole program.

I downloaded this because a blogger posted that the WHOLE app (all 12 units) was only 99 cents today. It is normally almost $50! So, I tried out lesson 1 in unit 1 before buying (because that is all you get free in this app) and was convinced it's a worthwhile phonics app.
I've taught 2 kids to read the "old fashioned" way, which I love (100 Easy Lessons to Learn How to Read book), and still plan on using it for future kids, but will add this Hooked On Phonics app as well. For the price, it can't be beat. That said, I would not pay $50(regular price) for the program. There are a multitude of free/low-cost, superb phonics/reading websites and books out there. No need to spend anything if you don't want to/can't. And honestly, the "fluff" that comes with a high-dollar program is usually not worth it.

I purchased the entire 12 units by using Amazon coins in-app purchasing. I didn't have any technical problems. Once I bought them they all lit up, and I simply had to download each unit before we could use it. I would highly recommend this app to anyone. I've been using it as a part of homeschooling for my 5 and 3 year old. It's easy to use and it's a great way to teach the kids how to read. My daughter was so excited when she was able to read her first book all by herself.

Deleted the trial before using it. I felt it to be a misleading "free" download.

I spent 50$ and the purchased content is not able to be used. 1 device shows it isn't paid for and my 2nd device shows its paid for but will not open the extra content.

I gave this one 5 stars because it has so many great activities. It is very expensive, however, but it's a whole reading program that includes activities and minibooks to help your kiddo learn to read. I'm a kindergarten teacher, and I would recommend this to my students. The free version is really just a "try-out version" so one big downfall is that you have to purchase the full program to get the full benefits.
