- You can have multiple user accounts.
- Provides adults with simple to read reports on progress / mastery of sounds learned.

Why kids love it
The introduction screen says it all. It is fun and adds some humour to the often mondain Phonics learning. Watch out for the cheeky Lion who blows raspberries!
Children are introduced to the sounds through fun and engaging ways.
Children match letters to the sound they are given by the voice command.
They match the picture to the sound given by voice command.
The activities provide a range of fun, bright and intriguing ways to develop phonetic knowledge. This is definitely an App that my students ask for time and time again.
The activities are diverse with simple to follow instructions. Children can play the game with independence.
Children are provided with choices upon a land to play in and also the characters which are unlocked as you progress.
One little issue
I cannot figure out how to ‘go back’ to change the user for example. The only way this seems possible is to exit the App by hitting the home button on my iPad. I do not know if this saves or looses the progress in that level.
