The Bottom Line:
Flashcards for memorizing sight words.
- Complete, organized list of words – Word lists are sorted into five main categories (i.e., ABCs, 123s, Dolch Words, Fountas & Pinnell, and Fry), which are further sorted into subcategories. This thorough categorization makes it easy to select flash-card sets that are most appropriate for your children.
- Informative About page – The About page features a nice Metro design and a good description of sight words. The description also includes links to related resources, such as books and Wikipedia articles that supply users with a more comprehensive description of sight words.
- Metro-design implementation –This application follows Metro-design principles in a delightful way.
- No risk – Free trial available. The trial version is the same as the full version, only with ads included. Buying the full version removes the ads.
- Room for improvement: Favorite’s list– It would be nice if users could tag their favorite cards to create their own list. Customizable list could help users focus on words that are more difficult to memorize.
- We could not find anything ugly about this delightful app. If you discover something new or something that could be improved with this app, please leave a comment and we will consider adding it to this post.
- Great subcategories – Each main category of sight words is further divided into subcategories that greatly help parents select which set of flash cards to teach their children.
