  • Used to be great

    This USED to be amazing, BUT the program was rewritten and now it makes no sense, follows no discernible pattern, and our second child is getting almost nothing from it and does not stay engaged like he did with the previous version. Then is for some reason it gets deleted (Oh I am sure your child would not do that) you lose your account information as to payments and plans. Hours and hours multiple phone calls & Emails to get it back only to have to do it again because a little brother deleted it. I don’t have the time or energy to work to get the program back and am looking for a new one that works
  • Lessons are great but the settings are terrible.

    My daughter is really enjoying the lessons but is getting frustrated because a third of the images are not on the screen. Some of the activities are hard to complete because she can not see all of the pieces. Also the icons are hard to touch
  • Good

    Is there a way to go back to the version from close to a year ago. The animals move slow and this version is not engaging at all. My son loved the version prior to this one.
  • Bring back the old version

    I’m a homeschool mom, my first daughter learned to read using your program I have all the sets and for a reward that would get to use the app that went along with the books and was super excited to learn to read. Now that my other daughter is learning to read with the physical books she doesn’t get to use the app because it’s too baby-ish and doesn’t look like the books anymore or easy to use. They loved the part where they earned trophies and extra books to read on it. Wish you would give the option to use the old app or new one for others. Disappointing. I’m going to have to find another reading program to buy now to use for my other daughter.
  • Lessons in activities great but “a” in end of unit books doesn’t match

    My daughter just started the “Learn to read” program & was so proud to get to the end of the unit reading words that end in -an. Hooked on phonics spends the unit (and every subsequent unit) using the simple lowercase “a” shape (the one that my phone won’t let me type apparently, but we write as a circle with a line backbone), and then in the end of unit book the program switches to the fancy type lowercase “a” (as typed here). After spending a unit identifying the shape of lowercase a’s go switch to a new shape of a with jo introduction is rough on a new reader. The end of unit books could use more support in general- it’s unclear if the expectation is that she can independently read them or if she’s meant to listen to them as watch the words highlight as a means of reinforcement.
  • Buyer Beware!!

    This has nothing to do with the curriculum of hooked on phonics but major issues with payments. I have cancelled subscriptions online , called several times each time saying it is cancelled and I’m still charge every month. I would not get this subscription due to mishandling of their billing.
  • Fun learning for my 4 year old

  • Buggy [UPDATED]

    UPDATE: I think as long as you keep your subscription current, the progress is saved. Personally, I prefer to manually update my subscriptions month to month (sometimes letting them expire for a short time) to ensure I don’t pay for ones I no longer use. In any case, the app works well and has helped my four-year-old develop independent reading very early, and I’m especially happy to see the introduction of a spelling program. I want to love this app as its method really is helping my kid learn to read, but it’s SOOO buggy when it comes to remembering/saving my kid’s progress. He’s had to do the same lesson 5 times and the app refuses to acknowledge he’s completed it.
  • Learned so much!
