Engaging & Fun


"My son really enjoys the app and is having a lot of fun using it. I like it because he very quickly was understanding the concept of what he was doing and immediately was improving in reading. He is able to do this himself, but I have been sitting beside him to see how he is doing... From a teaching perspective, I really like the app as well...I think this app is great!  My son wants to keep using it and is excited to use it, and I can see him actively learning and learning quickly." - Anonymous

Pediatrician Recommended!


Thank you for the most wonderful app that you have created. In a mere two hours, my 6 year old mastered many basics of reading. It was really great! Indeed the app keeps on getting better and better as we proceed to the higher levels. I guess it is like a seven-course meal with the chef's special for dessert. We are enjoying the literary feast.?May the app made by you not only improve literacy but also encourage young readers to cultivate the habit of reading. - Ever grateful. P.S I am a Pediatrician and would like to suggest the app to parents who worry about their kids' reading difficulties.  - Pooja P.

Wonderful Educational Tool


"As an educational tool, this app works wonders for early readers!  I can attest to that fact because I used to teach the FUNetix curriculum to struggling young readers, in person, and now I can use the app as a tool - which makes the whole learning process more interactive and fun with the student!  I highly recommend this app!"  - Keith K.
