abc PocketPhonics Lite: letter sounds & writing + first words

By Apps in My Pocket Ltd released on: 2009-01-19T08:24:36Z

" "there's no denying that "abc PocketPhonics" is an amazing app. A universal app—it works with both iPhone and iPad—PocketPhonics teaches the basics of reading and writing to young kids. Most surprising? It seems to work."
"u279cTechnology in Education: "If you are working on phonics for your kids, this is the best application to have."
"u279cWall Street Journal: "u2018boy won't put down his mom's iPhone, where she's downloaded "abc PocketPhonics."'
" "This app feels like you have a teacher or a tutor working with your child one on one."
" "PocketPhonics is seriously educational and I think it's a terrific tool for helping early readers. You can tell that a ton of thought and research was put into it and best of all, they talked and listened to teachers. It shows."

★★ If you need help, contact us from within the app as we are unable respond to reviews.★★

Uniquely, the full version of abc PocketPhonics combines in one app:

"u2714 Letter sounds
"u2714 Letter writing
"u2714 170 first words

abc PocketPhonics Lite is the FREE, cut-down version of abc PocketPhonics so you can try before you buy.

Only abc PocketPhonics follows the "synthetic phonics" teaching method - the keystone of the "Reading First" part of the "No Child Left Behind Act". And makes it fun.

Designed and reviewed by US and UK teachers who use phonics to teach children to read. It is primarily aimed at preschool kids and those aged up to 7. To understand the best educational practice underpinning abc PocketPhonics, order the free guide to teaching kids to read from the app.

Helps children learn to read by understanding the sounds that letters make. The Congressionally-mandated National Reading Panel concluded that children who have "phonics instruction read better and spell better than other children".

Letter sounds (how we say letters when we use them in words) are not the same as the letter names (what we call the letters). For instance, sound out slowly to yourself "cat". And you can see that the sounds that make up the word are nothing like what we call the letters.

A child who knows their letter names won't actually find that this helps them to read even simple words like "yes". By contrast, a child who knows their letter sounds will learn to read words they've never seen before.

PocketPhonics Lite teaches six letter sounds. The rest are covered in the full version including over 30 letters sounds that come from combining letters together (like "sh" and "ch"), because they are key to reading so many frequently-used words.

abc PocketPhonics visually demonstrates how to write each letter. Children enjoy practising their writing by tracing the letter with their finger (similar to a Montessori classroom where children learn first to trace letters with their fingers). PocketPhonics also works with iPhone-compatible styluses.

The Lite version provides a taster of this for the first six letters.

PocketPhonics checks the accuracy of your child's writing (can be switched off and the tolerance varied - using the Settings option in the app's Parentzone).

Using a unique, letter-sounds and word game, the full PocketPhonics teaches how to sound out and spell over 170 frequently-used words. There's about 20 words in the Lite version.

There's nothing else like it on the App Store.

The Parentzone allows you to:

"u2714 customise the app to the needs of your child through its wide range of settings
(e.g lowercase, uppercase or cursive letters; two popular handwriting styles like those taught in most US schools)
"u2714 get help or give feedback
"u2714 order our free guide on teaching kids to read

Creative Writing - End Your Writer's Block

By Burt Goldman released on: 2010-10-31T03:24:00Z

Intention Tunes: The Fast & Easy Way to Manifest Your Intentions for Creative Writing

Do you want to write easy and effortlessly with the push of a button?


This is incredible music; very healing and inspiring - it puts me in a state of creative free low and synchronicity, allowing my worries and problems to simply wash away into the nothingness from which they came. - Les Luxemburger

I listen to that song each morning before I start work and find the creative ideas for money to come are pouring out of me. Thanks Burt, thank you so much. - Robert

This was so uplifting. Listening to you music is gives me more creative energy - Rebecca

As soon as you touched your first note my body started to vibrate. I felt the energy go to the places in my body where there is arthritis. - Lee DiMauro

I'm happy your intention music worked. I had a nagging pain on my right foot for weeks, it has gone away - Dalila


For the past 59 years, Burt Goldman has traveled all over the world and studied under some of the greatest spiritual masters of all time, including Yogananda and Jose Silva, discovering the hidden secrets of our mind. Burt is now on a mission to share with the world what he has learned and has built up an online community of over 350,000 people who use Burt's powerful techniques and lessons to improve their lives.

Our mind is the single biggest untapped resource within us right now and we were all born with the same ability to tap into it to attract, create and manifest anything we desire in life. Most of us are aware of the incredible power of our minds but, unfortunately, very few of us know how to access it. Maybe you've tried affirmations but find them too basic. Maybe you've tried visualization but find it's not as easy or effective as you want it to be. Maybe you've tried meditation but find it too boring or time consuming.

If you fall into any of those categories, then you're going to love what Burt has come up with next.

He's created a simple, effective and fun (yes fun!) way for anyone to effortlessly harness the hidden power of their subconscious mind to solve just about any problem they may encounter in life.

And all it takes is just a few minutes a day!

Introducing Intention Tunes - the brand new and revolutionary concept that infuses music with the power of intention.

Setting an intention is probably the most powerful and effective way to ignite change and take control of your life. Intentions speak directly to your subconscious and when you set an intention, you will find that the Universe seems to work on your behalf and amazing things will start to occur.

Now combine this with fun, energetic, intention infused music and you have a super effective and fun tool that anyone can use to awaken the powers of their subconscious mind.

All you need to do is find a comfortable position and close your eyes. When you're ready you can start the audio. The audio is much more than just a relaxation tool— each Intention Tune has been infused with the very specific intention that you are trying to work on. While listening to each Intention Tune, make sure to hold the intention of each tune firmly in your mind and feel as if you have already achieved the given intention. In each Intention Tune, Burt offers a powerful guide you can follow in track 2.


- 3 high quality audio tracks
- Easy controls and navigation
- Seamless looping so you can listen for as long as you feel necessary
- Adjustable volume
- Easy to use interface
- Simple instructions
- Free updates
