Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

5 ★Brilliant. This has definitely sparked a curiosity for letters in my 3 yr old boy, he is starting to put words together and is totally engaged with the app.
5 ★It's not boring and my son actually plays it. Tonight he spelled 5 words on the game! He is extremely ADHD and very defiant but he likes this app so it's not a fight to get him to play and it holds his attention for a good 30 minutes at a time! We've tried so many things before this, to no avail. My son told me tonight, "this game is fun and I really like it! It's not boring like ABC Mouse!" It's such a relief to have this app and to see real progress!
2 ★Great when it works but all too often the narrator's voice cuts out whilst in the middle of playing making the game impossible to complete. A frustrating experience for my 4 year old.
5 ★My daughter struggled so I kept trying everything. I came across this app on our PC so we gave it a try. That same day at bedtime, I was reading her a book & she started to read along with me. I was honestly shocked and so thankful 💜
5 ★I started using this in my class and even my low ability readers have greatly improved. My students would always ask to play the mini games. They played at home and during distance learning my entire department had adopted the program. We added games to our distance learning schedules for parents and posted the rewards to our class groups. I swear by this app. My daughter what was 3 when she started playing is now 4 it helped a lot with her sound recognition. Thank you so much for this game.
5 ★Great App. Recommended by the primary school teacher. My daughter instantly loved it and wont stop playing on it. With this speed she will read by the time she is 6.Highly recommend
5 ★We started using the app a week ago and my child loves it! She has asked to play every day and she has learned so much in the week she has played! I'm so glad to have am educational game that actually keeps her engaged!
5 ★I can't say enough for this app! I've been trying to teach my 5 yr old to read with no luck. He's been using this app less than a week and is learning all of his letter sounds and starting to read simple words. Plus, he LOVES to play the games. Instead of fighting with him to sit down and practice he BEGS to play the game!
5 ★This app is wonderful. Our 4 year old is engaged and keeps his focus playing with it. We're trying the teaching resources, and so far they are a great complement to bring what he does into our relationship, getting information about how he's don and while he can use the app on his own when he wants a bit more autonomy.
5 ★Super reading app. Very forgiving of young children who make a lot of mistakes both in terms of misunderstanding and also clumsiness (I have found other apps less forgiving). My 4 year old loves the games and it has definitely helped his reading. Agree with other comments re pronunciation (non rhotic r for example so ar is pronounced ah rather than arrrr). Highly recommended.
4 ★I love the program. My daughter gets frustrated because she gets excited and dosent listen to the sounds closely but loves the prizes for compleating Ievels.
5 ★I've tried everything to get my 4 year old to read. When I saw the reviews I didn't really believe it but thought it was worth a try. Within only a couple of days I've seen a massive improvement and he picks this game over Mario and Sonic. Absolutely brilliant, best app I've purchased in a long time.
