Download Hooked on Phonics Learn & Read 6.3.01 for iPhone/iPad by Hooked on Phonics directly from Apple Appstore. This app version requires iOS 4+ to be able to install and run.
Since having hooked on phonics my son has been doing well with learning he loves the app as well. He went from no interest at all in reading to loving to read I absolutely love this app. He loves doing the workbook as well.
I have contacted hooked on phonics and they continue to refer me back to the app. I cancelled a couple of months ago and they keep charging me. They said it’s you. What do I need to do.
The new version is glitchy and in order to even open the program I have to delegate and reinstall the app! I also noticed that this new version has a lot of distractions. My daughter keeps getting distracted by the different animals and their movements and the progression is confusing. This app helped my son learn to read 5 years ago, it was amazing. The changes are so disappointing.
This app was so helpful for my daughter. She is in an immersion school and was having trouble with reading English. She was behind even for an immersion setting. This got her excited about learning to read and helped her catch up to her peers. Very glad we did it.
This used to be an amazing app that my son loved to use. Unfortunately they have made it busier, less user friendly and full of glitches now. The muted colors were nice but the new format took away some favorite features and worst of all they have added too much background visual stimuli that is unnecessary. Apparently the developers are completely unaware of what cognitive load is. My son went from progressing and navigating this on his own to needing help every step of the way with the new design. Really really poor design that is not beneficial to kids of any ability level.
I was expecting more , I wasted 1 month subscription.
Would not recommend this App!
No matter how far my son progresses I can’t unlock any games from the game tabs. Other than that it works well WITH THE BOOKS. The physical books help us more but the app is a great thing to play after the actual lesson.
My son enjoys learning through this app however, there are several glitches that are impeding the proper progression with several sections. For example when Moving to next activity it will not start when pushed but continually say "letter _” but not open the activity. This is frustrating for my son. Also the ant activity has at least 2 letters on the moped so he cannot accurately identify the correct letter. So he is guessing which we do not want him doing. These things are occurring on both devices I have this application on. We might cancel the subscription because of this.
