Apps in My Pocket Releases PocketPhonics

Posted January 28, 2009 at 3:22pm by iClarified
Apps in My Pocket has released PocketPhonics for iPhone. Children can now enjoy learning to read using phonics on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Phonics is the reading system recommended by education specialists in both the US and UK.

Teacher, Sue Keen, said: "As a teacher of young children, I am always anxious that new resources for the classroom have a strong educational basis and actually work. I've used PocketPhonics with children aged 4 to 6 and the results have been very encouraging. You know you're winning when the child doesn't want to stop."

John Friend, company director at Apps in My Pocket, said: "PocketPhonics starts by saying the sounds and showing children how to write them. It's been developed from scratch with children in mind, for parents to use with their children or for use in the classroom. Children love to copy the writing on the handheld screen using their finger, and shake the iPhone to make their writing disappear. Sounds are taught in small groups so they can be quickly used together in a game to make short words."

Pricing and Availability:
PocketPhonics costs $2.99 (USD) in the US and £1.79 in the UK, and is available to download now from Apple iTunes. It uses touch, graphics, animation and sound to make learning to read both fun and engaging for younger children. There's also a free "lite" version so that people can see how it works before they buy.
