Reviews from Users and Mobile App Reviewers:

"My son is 24 months and your app is teaching him to read!"

"I use this with my preschooler at home and am looking forward to using it at work, with children who have language delays!"

"Excellent pictures for all students and preschoolers. As a bilingual speech language pathologist this app will definitely come into good use."

"My four year old and 18 month year old love this app!"

"Preschool Words gives an interesting twist to educational apps. The animations are colorful and amusing, and hold great appeal for kids. Most educational apps work with flashcards, and Preschool Words is a fresh perspective that kids will enjoy and also learn something new in the process. Preschool Words is a fun way for kids to learn how to spell, pronounce and also see what words look like. It is definitely one of the better educational apps, and more of it would be most welcome." -iPhone Educational Games

"For those parents who have children who are just beginning how to learn to read, or for those parents who want an "edutaining" app for their young child, Preschool Words is a great choice. I highly recommend Preschool Words. Preschool Words can help children learn how to recognize certain words, and can teach them that learning is a fun process, too." Helium - 5 Stars!

"A cute and engaging educational app geared toward teaching toddlers word and image associations. Great for the burgeoning mind. I really like the egg animation, in particular. Its actually quite brilliant, and Im sure, fascinating for a child to behold. Preschool Words definitely has more potential than other, more static flashcard type apps in the App Store." -AppStruck - 4 Stars!

    Just OK

    I have mixed feelings about this app. There are three types of activities you can choose from (words, games, and music). The word activitiy opens to a "too short" list of words to choose from. Once a word is selected, a new screen appears with a few related words that animate when selected. I am not sure why, but the screen goes dk. gray for several seconds after a selection is made (almost as if the app is freezing up). Next, the game section is pretty good with 3 types of word/picture identification quizzes. My only qualm here is the amount of time in between questions (it's super slow). Finally, the music section is rather disappointing. Rather than a list of songs to select from...it's one song; Heads, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes. Overall, I give it one thumb up and one thumb down.

    Great for Early Learning

    This app teaches prek kids about words with a twist. I like the way it shows a word in action. My kid loves it. I recommend it.

    Great potential but...

    Toddler likes the content however gets frustrated at lengthy delays and switches apps. For adults the delay time is more than obvious and when others have seen it say "Wow that's slow." Get rid of the fades or the fancy things bogging it down ad it could be better. Also needs a larger list of words to draw from.

    Video doesn't work

    After emailing about the video problem I was told that the color nook isn't that great with videos. Funny, netflix works just fine. Don't sell as a feature if it won't work on the color nook!

    Wasn't what I expected

    While I am at fault for assuming something that was only .99c would be more than it was, I do think that this should not be marketed to anyone over 3. My child is no genius, but she managed to figure and win all puzzles/games within 10 min of owning the app. I looked through it thinking maybe we missed something, the app is just very very short. One game had only 5 words! Also, this app is very very slow to load from one page to another, all my other apps are quite quick. It was only .99c, but I sure wish I could apply that to something more appropriate. Perhaps I can only say if you have a VERY young child (one, two years old) this would be fun and a challenge to them, but not to anyone older.

    SHOCKED!!! T

    You people need to "SERIOUSLY" UPDATE your program. I am really shocked that in this day and age of computers and the ease of programming, you would list a music section with only onensong. If you need help picking appropriate kids songs, easy kids songs, I would be glad.to help you. Just call me! Sincerely, LyndaGL- otherwise known as Mom, Grandmom and the "THE ODDErg R-MUDDER".
