    "Although many are happy with it, this link is to the Google App store so it's not applicable to iPhones. There are many negative reviews from customer service nightmares, so be weary."

    "When my toddler started showing an interest in reading, I wanted something similar to the old Hooked on Phonics I used when I was a kid to help her understand the basics, and after a little research, I found Bob Books, which has a very similar formula. She enjoys using it and has already shown a marked improvement."

    "Spreeder is a free app that trains you to read faster or speed read. While it may work to help you read faster, it may not help if you don't actually understand what you're reading which is why I don't believe it's very beneficial."
