  • Terrible!

    By Seasaltandgin
    Do not recommend. My kid’s progress would not save. Emailed customer service, they told me to check my phone & app updates(they were current). Then they asked me to log out & back on, & that logging out is more likely to save progress (what?!😒). Then they told me to press the “restore purchases” button in the app (which fixes the problem... kind of... until module 3. it happens too often). If *that* didn’t fix it, I would have had to delete the app, & re-download it. When he finished module 3, the app would not progress to module 4. I have tried everything except removing & reinstalling the app, but no professionally developed app for $60 should contain any of the problems this one has. The game will automatically log out at random. Being 3, my son freaks out when I have to take back the phone to fix the app, or when it logs out(no, it’s not my kid, it’s just a random occurrence) . This app is worth maybe $5 at best in its current form. I only purchased for $60 on brand recognition, a major mistake. Do not recommend to you, will not recommend to friends or family. Edit(08/16/18):1) my account automatically logged out, and neither the app or the website recognize I have any account at all. This is the second time this issue has occurred in 60 days. (I’m not the only one with either of these two issues. Read other 1 star comments & the only comment on their website, which incidentally has commenting locked out as of this post). 2) HoP replied saying they developed a patch to resolve the progress issues & to update my app, but the update isn’t showing in the app store, & if it was, I still can’t log in to my account.

    Subscription button doesn’t work. Can’t subscribe via app. Had trouble creating an account via the app. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and the account is logged in now, but I still can’t subscribe via app and that’s what I want to use.

    Once the 7 day free trial up then the app stops working regardless of subscription bending up to date. And customer service is worthless
  • My 4 year old loves this

    By Kryssygyrl
    She’s Been sounding out words since she was three years old and got kind of burnt out so I stopped encouraging her to read and when I introduced this app she started loving it again. There’s no groaning and moaning when I tell her she has to do this before she has any other tablet time

    My kids love Hooked on Phonics!
  • So much fun! Great app!

    By I love High5!
    The Hooked on Phonics app is great! My daughter loves it and has learned so much already. The big reading show portion was fun and educational and was a great review of the alphabet and the sounds before going into the rest of the steps. The videos are super catchy and she sings them all the time! The little games on the app are also great because she gets to interact with the lesson. I honestly love how many ebooks there are for her to read in the app! This app is well worth the subscription because it’s a great program and she’s having fun while she does it. I think it’s going to help her as she gets ready for the new school year. Thank you!
