  • No support

    By Bloodswife45
    I purchased the Hooked on Phonics App (2 different apps) for my classroom so I could use it on my sons and their classmates. I have emailed support a couple times and never received a reply. I paid a lot for the apps. The iPad froze and had to be reset. You can not download the app. So I am out the money I paid for the 2 apps.
  • Awesome program

    By Mrs. High School teacher
    Awesome, engaging program, but can not get the volume to work. We have called and they said they would work on it. I deactivated my account and resubscribed and still the same. Really disappointed because my son really needs it.
  • Unable to download new lessons

    By Monsonma
    Just paid for this app, but now the lessons will not download. The green bar starts just a bit, then freezes. So frustrating as this app seems great.
  • No sound

    The sound will not work
  • Volume off

    The audio only works intermittently. In an app that’s based on phonics, this renders it useless.

    By Yana08
    I purchased the full app 3 maybe 4 years ago where I had access to all the books and everything I paid around $200 my son was with out an iPad for a year and when he got a new one I downloaded this app again BUT now it says now it’s a monthly things.. so now I feel like I got ripped off by you guys
  • glitches in their favor

    By Annalynne
    Signed up for a seven day free trial. Instruction said it would be easy to manage and cancel if I decided to cancel. Well I decided to cancel and guess what? It’s nearly impossible to do. Apple doesn’t see a free trial apparently as a subscription so you can’t find it under manage your subscription. There’s no option to get out of the seven day trial on the website that I can find and the website is full of glitches. For instance you click on their email address to open an email and nothing happens. You go to type in your email address and nothing happens. Somehow they have my address as Baltimore Maryland I live in Massachusetts. Another glitch I’m sure. I know this program has an excellent reputation that’s why I was willing to give it a free trial. But for my grandchildren it just didn’t work out they’re not that interested and I see no reason for me to keep it. I am extremely disappointed that’s such a reputable name that’s been around for many years would have such errors in their site. Errors that seem to me to be geared at keeping people past their free trial so that they can bill them. I do see another review where the woman is billed every month and has to call them every month to cancel. This is frustrating aggravating terribly wrong he should just not be happening from a reputable company. My advice is to stay away from the digital version at least. Also we were led to this trial through a game and we were supposed to get credits in the game to use as currency, upwards of 20,000 so called diamonds that never arrived. I don’t just try everything that I’m asked to try and order to earn points or game currency, but I do expect to receive them if it’s promised.
  • Kids love it.

    By fiziks
    The program is really expensive but the kids love it.
  • Never works!

    By moscowqueen
    This app NEVER works properly. I'm so tired of paying for it monthly and it not working properly. Now I need to figure out how to cancel it. I want my money back. I’ve sent a message to customer service and the only thing I got back was instructions on how to install it. Not even a “sorry you’re having problems”.
  • Do NOT do the free try

    By pshuevsocofowhqgqcavxjdkdndh
    I signed up for the free try and then turned it off after the time was up. They kept it on and charged my card. I contacted customer service and we emailed back and forth and were able to “cancel” the service or so I thought. I have discontinued the service and taken the app off my phone and they STILL CHARGE ME EVERY MONTH and every month I contact their service department and cancel the service and tell them to stop charging me and they continue. It’s been going on for 4 months!!!! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
