"The Looney Tunes Phonics mobile app for iOS - which gives parents, educators, and students an initial free access to some of our most dynamic lessons, and which gives subscribers of our online programs complete mobile access - is even more effective now that it's optimized for use with the iPhone 5 and has many new updates and features."
