  • To many glitches

    By Tchebaby
    We love the program but thus app has WAY TO MANY GLITCHES! We were at level 12 and the app lost all her progress, now it doesn’t even pull up her username. Every other month there is an issue and it is so discouraging to a child who is trying to reach their goal for this to keep happening. We are about to call it quits and try another program.
  • Glitches

    By zatch99
    Update: Now has deleted all of his progress and his user entirely. We liked this app in the past, but we just picked up doing it again and it keeps glitching then losing our son’s progress. To where he suddenly has to try again to unlock each thing just to get to where he was. It’s sucking the joy out of his hard work having to do this and then it just glitches and goes even FURTHER back in levels. So he loses his stars and accomplishments from level 4 on. He was so motivated and enthusiastic to complete his goal today and kept trying even when it glitched and meant he had to go over things that were easy for him again, but after it sent him back to level 4 I just told him to wait until it can get fixed. This is his week off of school and he’s doing fantastic on his reading and so excited, it will be sad if this can’t be resolved ASAP and he can’t do it the rest of the week. It’s only Tuesday. 🤦‍♀️ This was expensive and I see from other reviews it was happening in September as well. It apparently hasn’t been fixed and it’s now nearing the end of November.
  • Glitches

    By Frigenawsomedude
    This is very frustrating for my son who is already frustrated with reading. I’ve purchased this expensive learning application in hopes that it would help make reading exciting and fun. Please fix as soon as possible. We are relying on the reputation of Hooked On Phonics.
  • Could be amazing... but isn’t

    By SouthernBelleinMD
    The content is the phenomenal content we know and love from Hooked on Phonics; the app is horrendous in every way: it’s buggy, it crashes, it doesn’t recognize login credentials. What else could even possibly go wrong?
  • BEWARE - NOT compatible with iOS12 update Developer NOT updating APP

    By TrineyGurl
    After updating iOS on iPad, HOP App is listed by Apple as Not being compatible with the Apple Update; and that the developer needs to update the App. So thats $50 down the drain. HOP never really seemed to off customer service anyway, for the past few years. So proceed with caution if you are thinking if buying Hooked On phonics products.
  • I want to give this app 5 stars

    By SdaEd
    I am a believer in this program and I purchased the life long subscription. However the app has several glitches. For example: sometimes there is no sound when it is suppose to have sound; sometimes the app doesn’t realize you have completed an activity and keeps requesting that you complete a step that has already been completed - this is very confusing for a small child. I am hoping the developers address the glitches and make this product the best it can be.
  • Cancelled and they’re still charging me

    By CoffeyKramer
    The app didn’t go far, I paid money for it and kept trying to get me to buy more and more. Said there’s stuff my daughter could do on the computer and said I wasn’t subscribed. Cancelled it a few months back and realized today that they’re still charging me.
  • Glitchy and Font Size No Good

    By MzVivi123
    I have always loved HOP. Remember learning to read when I was a kid using it. Downloaded this app for my 4yr old to give her a head-start. She does well until it gets to the any of the levels where she has to pick a word and turn it into flowers. She feels good about herself at pointing the words out and until it gets stuck asking for the same word and not she can’t find it because it’s not there. Another issue I have with the app is that for the part of reading the books, I find the font size to be too small. Not sure if I would continue paying for the app if it continues with issues. I don’t want her to feel like she can’t read.
  • The app didn’t work.

    By cdw1102
    I was excited about using this app to help my son, but it wouldn’t allow him to go to level 2. He just had to play level 1 over and over. This is after we paid for it. I was so disappointed because he was really enjoying it. 🙁
  • Can’t sign in
