[prMac.com] London, England - The iSpy Phonics app, developed in conjunction with a British speech and language therapist, helps children learn the first building blocks of reading - fast. iSpy Phonics 1.1 enables children to match phonic sounds with letters, through colorful illustrations, pictures and accurate pronunciation, all whilst playing the age old game of I Spy. It provides a fun and highly interactive way to help children learn to recognize letters and their phonic sound - the first stage in reading.
"Kids love adding their own pictures and voice to apps" said Martin Brooks the app's creator, who was recently voted "Dad of the Year" by Bounty.com. Martin is the loving father of Mia who has severe cerebral palsy and requires 24 hour care. He's 100% committed to her and bettering her life.
iSpy Phonics focuses on the fun elements of teaching children new words and sounds, enabling them to change the content as they progress. Ask your child what else they "Spy" that starts with a sound and reward them by helping them to take a photo and record their own voice saying it. Kids have never had so much fun while learning. You can relax as the app is childproofed, so you can restore all the original images and sound files at the touch of a button.
The iSpy Phonics app covers each letter in the alphabet and four additional common consonant sounds. Each sound is illustrated individually and has a clear photograph of an everyday object accompanying it. The app contains a phonic sound recording for each letter that can be repeated as often as a child needs to help them remember it. This ability to repeat sounds, words and see familiar objects helps children to learn phonic sounds easily and speeds up their reading.

* Aid reading development through multi-sensory learning
