Product Review of Phonics Make a Word
This app is designed for kids who are new to reading phonics and spelling. The featured words have short vowel sounds; the app includes five short vowel groups, each consisting of about 30 CVC words. Hence, there are about 150 words to learn in the game. The version for older kids, Phonics Advanced, features longer vowel sounds and double vowels. This app supports multiple-user accounts concurrently, and it generates report cards to monitor your kid’s progress.
What Users Love About the App
“Great phonics game for beginning readers. Each letter is sounded out to help the child figure out how to spell the word that describes the displayed picture.”
What Users Dislike About the App
“In my opinion, the app is not worth the $2.99 (which we paid for to “top in”) for the short program that it is. My child can finish all the words in a short amount of time.”
“I wish there were 3 times as many words provided. I personally will not buy another app from this company unless they start putting in more features for the money. Otherwise, please just sell the app for $.99, which is at most what I would pay for the little amount of material given.”
“Not kid friendly, and there are too many click required to purchase.”
