More Accolades

The New York Times
"This is an important breakthrough in reading instruction, because it leverages the iPad s size, powerful speech synthesis abilities and touchscreen, so that every letter can be a building block of phonetically accurate sound"

Children's Technology Review
Editor's Choice Award for Excellence in Design - 4.8 stars out of 5 - "Turn your iPad into a talking alphabet/language generator - and the perfect tool for a child just starting to experiment with letters and their sounds"

Wired's GeekDad
"This is a fantastic app for young children, right through to children in later elementary school which makes it an app worth having on your iPad."

I love the talking alphabet. (...) The app supports letter recognition, phonological awareness, spelling and self-correction without sacrificing fun. I will certainly recommend it to early educators. Mary Ellin Logue, Ed.D, Associate Professor, Early Childhood Education,University of Maine
