Phonics App - Phonics Hero

Join the Smart Parents and Leading Schools Who Use Our Phonics App

Our phonics app is different; it’s not a bit of this, a bit of that – it’s a step-by-step program that takes a child through every sound in the English language. But we don’t stop there. Children then use these sounds to read and spell words, they learn tricky words and finally combine these learned skills to conquer sentences.

The heroes from Phonics Hero

But to a 4-year-old what makes our phonics app different? When your child starts their phonics adventure they join our hero, Zak, on a mission to rescue his superhero friends and ultimately defeat Dr. Lazy Bones. To free the heroes, children will defeat dragons, hunt for diamonds, hitch a ride with a kangaroo and so much more – all as they learn to read and spell!

UK and NSW, Aust. Department for Education Recommended

In 2024, the NSW government approved Phonics Hero for data safety and educational quality.

Check Out How It Works

I have spent years trying to get my son interested in reading, bought numerous phonics apps, books, resources and I can honestly say Phonics Hero is the only one he voluntarily plays and even chooses it over TV time! I am one very happy mum!”
