Reading Remedies for iPhone and iPad

This week I released my first iPhone/iPad app, Reading Remedies, which helps to diagnose reading difficulties and support beginning readers. I hope it will be of use to teachers and especially parents.

The app gives assessments in each of six reading areas (rhyming, blending, segmenting, sight words, fluency, and word attack) and then provides follow-up activities for teaching each of the reading skills. It’s only .99ยข and is available now in iTunes.

Apple has chosen to feature the app in the “New and Noteworthy” education section where it has been since it was released.

This is my first mobile app (Fluency Timer was released in January for desktops) and the first app I’ve coded entirely by myself (more on that later) although I got a lot of help on the content from other teachers and literacy experts.

Please check out this youtube video demonstration I made for the app:

  1. I am hopeful you will also publish as an Android app. Where I live ATT service is spotty and I use Verizon.

    • Thank you for your interest in an Android version of the application. It is something that I am looking into. However, please understand that developing software for multiple platforms is an expensive and time-consumming endeavor and not necessarily for a full-time teacher with limited resources.

      The application does not rely on a cellular connection and can be used on an iPad or iPod Touch with or without an active wi-fi connection.

  2. My name is Brent LaForce, and I am a student in Dr. Strange’s EDM 310 class at The University Of South Alabama. I think that this App is a great thing. It can help teachers and parents like you stated. I believe that this is a good thing, because it will help diagnose reading difficulties easier. And also can help correct them. Another thing that is great is it provides great tools for the beginning readers. Hopefully this App does prosper and it used the way that it can be very helpful.
