The full (paid) versions of our Sight Words and Learn to Read with Phonics Apps allow for individual profiles to be set up. Each user has their own menu and can see their progress and rewards. This makes it easy for teachers to allow students to progress at their own rate when using the apps on tablets or desk-top PCs in classrooms.

Here is how it’s done:

The starting screen on all versions (paid and lite) will be something like this (depending on the app):

Add user 1

For a single player or in the Lite versions just tap on the name “Player” and the game will start.

Add Users

To add extra users tap the green and red people symbol – you will be taken to the list of users – to add a user scroll down until you see +ADD+ add tap it. You will be asked to tap the button 5 more times.

add user2

You will be asked to tap the +ADD+ button 5 more times. You will then go to a user entry/edit/delete screen.

add user3

 

Add user 4

Enter the users name and select the green Y. You will go back to the list of users.

You can begin playing at this time by tapping the user’s name or you can add more users by selecting +ADD+.

To Edit or Delete Users

Go to the Users List by tapping the Parrot Head on the side of the menu.
