I downloaded the app in May of 2013. My son was around 20 months at the time and it was a free Mother’s Day download. He played and played with it. Even when other apps didn’t keep his attention, this one did. I don’t know if it’s the reason he started pre-school reading on a first grade level, but I believe it had a lot to do with that. He wasn’t the kid that liked to sit still for books to be read to him so I cannot take the credit. I have advised many of my friends to purchase or download this app for that reason. Thanks so much for helping my now 7 year old to read. ❤️
Very cute, fun, and works wonders!
The hooked on phonics app is great! I recommend it to everyone because the little games and videos are really engaging. The achievement section sets goals and there are SO many ebooks included. My daughter loves playing every night and I’ve seen such a huge improvement in her interest in reading and her reading skills. The subscription options are well worth it. Hooked on phonics has been around since I was a little girl and it’s still just as great. I had a problem with the app once and customer support was pretty helpful and attentive too.

Love this app, taught 3 kids to read!
They have added the reading show since I originally bought this about 10 years ago which was great for my third kid. The levels are gradual enough for the kids not to freak when the words get bigger. It reinforces the sounds over and over with cute little games. Perfect for pre-k kids that are learning letters and sounds, and seamlessly mov3 on to reading simple words phonetically. Highly recommend. Every one of my kids begged for hooked on phonics time each day!
Best reading app!
I think this is the 5th reading app we've tried for our 5yo, even a couple more expensive subscription apps, but it's the first one she's loved where she asks to play! It is really intuitive and even our 2.5yo can play it. The app works faster and with less bugs than some of the others. Downloading the app was slow and downloading content is a bit awkward but still it's by far the best program we've found!
Issue within app
My youngest son loves the songs and enjoys learning via the app. However, on one of the lessons (the girl with her tongue out of her mouth), he is unable to see the words. Since he cannot see the words, he has guess which person has the word in front of them. He taps on each person until he gets it right. Other than that, it is a great way for my 5 year old to learn. If you all could fix that issue, we would greatly appreciate it!
Best learn to read app ever
I am now 10 and used this when I was about 4 and loved it! I am now in accelerated reading in my school and am one of the top readers in my school! I would be in normal classes without this app! I recommend this to anyone that has a kid (like myself) that is struggling with reading or doesn’t like it. (I no longer struggle but that is because of this app) Best (non gaming) app ever!
Lifetime Subscription Not Legit
I purchased the lifetime subscription a year ago and it showed up as a yearly subscription on the receipt of the initial purchase. When I called Apple to inquire at the time and confirm I purchased a lifetime subscription, they said yes. Now all of a sudden my subscription converted to monthly without authorization and I have been charged $6.99 for the last two months for the app. Not happy, as my kids love the app and we have the complete program, but I refuse to pay again for something I should have had in the first place. The lifetime subscription is not true to its name.
**Just be sure whatever discounts you see listed from Hooked On Phonics (especially for the app) you purchase from the website and not from iTunes or google play. We just learned the hard way the pricing is different! Online/app unlimited lifetime via the website price is listed the same through I tunes however I tunes charges it per year. Just don’t want others to have to pay more for a program that does work when they don’t have to. Especially since we didn’t realize the pricing was different.
A lot of time wasted.
It’s a decent app, however it seems like for every 5 minutes of learning, there is a minute of an intro for the big reading show, over and over. We got it, big reading show. Why do we need to watch the same intro when that time could be spent actually learning something?
On every device we have I have to log in multiple times to keep the kids playing. It’s so bad that the program is not usable. It is beyond me why this has not been corrected by the developer. Our family signed up for a year. Big waste of time and money. I like the hooked on phonics resources but the poor functionality destroys the product.
I have not used this app in quite awhile but remember It was the one time charge of $49. Did they do away with that option? I’d love to be able to access the same features that I previously had. I just have a serious issue with paying an additional monthly fee for what I “should” have lifetimes rights anyway. Sorry if I’m confused about something. Also, did there use to a separate classroom version?
Something wrong after I updated today
The app is great. But since I updated today. When I played unit 1(yellow) there are 3 lessons inside. In the lesson 3, there are helper words. At beginning it had sound, but it showed black screen, I got back , tried to get in , it had no found , no video. The app has something wrong after update. And my phone is a new phone !would you fix it , please !
KEEPS SAYING “wait for download”
I have iPhone XR and cannot use this app. All it tells me is “wait for current download before “ doing anything on the app. I was able to access the reading library yesterday and that’s it. It won’t work. This is completely ridiculous given the price for the subscription.
Paid $50+ for this app and they want more
I paid $50+ for this app unlocks a few years ago and since that have been utterly unable to access what I paid for. Now they are on a subscription model and it doesn’t look like I can get ANYTHING that I already paid (ahem) TOO much for. What are you guys doing? I’ve supported your company for decades- this is NOT how you treat digital customers. There’s a reason why your App Store ratings are so low...
