With three great games, Playwords is challenging for children beginning to read or starting to spell.
Beautifully illustrated with over 350 original, hand-drawn pictures and professionally narrated by a clear, lively voice, the games are both entertaining and educational. Easy for kids to use by themselves, Playwords is fun alone or with Mom and Dad.
A simple game that shows one word at a time.
The most straightforward of the Playwords games, Picture Blast shows a new word every time the Questions book is tapped.
Your child can try to read the word on their own — aided by the illustration — and then tap the Answers book to hear the correct answer.
A challenge to choose the word that matches the illustration.
Word Match speaks a word out loud, presents a corresponding illustration, and gives four possible answers for the correct word.
The game proceeds when your child taps the correct answer.
Get five correct answers in a row to earn a sticker or stamp.
A simple spelling game where kids are asked to fill in the missing letter in a word.
The most challenging of the games, Lost Letter removes a random letter from a word, and asks the child to choose the correct answer from one of four options.
As with Word Match, getting five correct answers in a row earns stickers and stamps.
Playwords cracked the top 10 paid education apps in over 20 countries — including USA, Canada, India, and New Zealand — and was featured by Apple as a Staff Favorite.
Playwords is a visually attractive app that helps kids learn to read and spell a variety of words. Its instruction is gentle, with no scoring or goal to reach. Each of the three games offers a different level of challenge, testing a different component of literacy. This app may appeal to a wider range of abilities than most literacy apps.

This is really a great program for kids who are just learning how to read. Kids get really excited when they got the answer right. And great design, too.

Thank you, this is really good program for kids who are starting to learn to read. Great graphics and audio! Unfortunately, there are almost none of the good programs in the app store, that will actually break the process of reading down to elements and have a decent collection of words. Again, yours is the move in the right direction!!
