Is It Any Good?

If you're seeking a set of virtual flash cards with which to drill your child on reading common words, SMILEY SIGHT WORDS might be the best you can get. It's got over 1,500 words arranged into five decks, each with multiple levels of difficulty. Kids can interact with the words, tapping to hear them aloud and marking them with either a smiley or frowny face. They can also shuffle the deck with a shake of the device. Parents have a lot of control here with the ability to track progress, remove already-mastered words, and even create a custom deck. Up to 40 kids can each have their own profiles on the app.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
