Foundations Memory Work C1 Positive Reviews
A Great App that could be Awesome!My kids love this App, we use it every day and have cycle 2 also. This App could be even better especially for the price if it included both Presidents songs, the timeline song and if the features were more interactive. For example if after the Latin song had finished the student could touch the individual words to repeat them. Allowing them to hear the pronunciation of the specific word they are having trouble with. Also math, science and geography would benefit from the same application. Touching the place, number, or word again would result in the repetition of that place, number or word. The layout of the graphs, and maps could also utilize the free space of the IPad more efficiently resulting in less dead space and larger more visible images. A great App but with improvement could be a much better teaching aid. I hope a future update will include these features..Version: 1.20
Great resource for CC liteI know several families who participate in CC and am always impressed with all that they are learning. I am not quite ready to join, as it is quite pricey compared to what I now pay just homeschooling on our own at home. However, I was happy to buy this app in order to access the basic curriculum to keep my kids somewhat abreast in case we join when they are older (which we plan to do). We have completed all 24 weeks, and I have been impressed with the content, layout, songs, ease of use, etc. My 9 yr old and 7 yr old are able to use this on their own, though I do it with them once a week to see what they are learning. I plan to buy the next app after Christmas. My only regret is that the app isn't available for Kindle Fire, as those devices are dramatically cheaper than apple products..Version: 1.20
No song!Ok so I really love CC! It’s a great program and I’ve been homeschooling for over 20 yrs, I have 4 children and I’ve tried it all. Started my youngest in CC this year for the first time. My 1 major complaint is that they really lack in “keeping up with the times” so to speak when it comes to media apps and (musical tunes, but I won’t go there now) I was really thrilled to see this app now and downloaded it immediately!
Much to my regret.... there are NO songs, not even the timeline song.... I don’t get it? Why would you not include the timeline song?
Well, I heard I can download it elsewhere so I’ll be looking into that now.
UPDATE: There are songs on this app BUT not the main timeline song so I upgraded to a 3 star review. It’s handy but really needs the timeline song added..Version: 2.00
Somewhat disappointingGraphics are nice and bright. I wish there was an auto play option so I could sit my phone down and let it play for overall review for all weeks, as well as, specific weeks. Would also like the option for it to be more interactive. Quizzes/Review for each week would be nice. Fill in the blank. It would also be very nice if the timeline was more interactive. I would love to have the option to tap on a photo and receive some of the facts and history that come on the back of the timeline cards. Overall lackluster for $16..Version: 1.20
Wonderful resourceI'm shocked and blown away at all the negative feedback on this app. Sure it would be nice if they added the timeline song however then the app would have everything you need and almost replace the book and other resources. It's wisdom that they don't allow just anyone to purchase an app that includes everything. That said. I love the apps, they are visual and work beautifully. My kids love them and it allows for easy visual and auditory review that doesn't require parental assistance. It's a wonderful app and I think it's worth every penny. Love it totally recommend!.Version: 1.20
Such a helpful resourceEach week’s memory work at my fingertips! The layout is so pleasant and it is very easy to navigate between topics and weeks just with a swipe. Love this. My kids love watching the topics reveal themselves bit by bit and it’s just such a lovely presentation. We have the book and the cards and also each week on iTunes for the car ride, but this app still provides unique value to our CC experience as we snuggle up and review..Version: 2.10
App development is a little lacking.This review is just for the app functionality and not for the content. It would be so helpful to update the app so that you can skip the talking intros and go straight to the songs. Especially in history. Some of the sentences are so long and my kiddos want to be able to sing along several times in a row to learn the song. As it is you have to sit through the entire spoken part. A scrubbing button or a skip function would be amazing!.Version: 3.00
Great App if...We are a CC family and use this app daily. It has almost everything we need if we are at home or on the go. The only thing I wish it had was the official timeline song. It seems foolish to me that the key song across the entire program is left out of this app. I have heard this complaint from families within the community as to why they won't buy the app. The memory work in here is wonderful, engaging, and rich they only piece lacking in the official timeline song..Version: 1.20
Great with only a couple exceptionsThis app is fantastic for reviewing weekly memory work! I only wish it had a couple things...
First, it would be VERY helpful to have the timeline song sectioned out with each week. The same way the history sentence is read, then sung... it would be great to have the same with timeline.
Second, it would be nice to have an option to play through one week at a time without having to swipe up after each subject..Version: 2.10
Helpful but not completeI love having the app on my phone and iPad for easy access to practice memory work. But I’m disappointed the History and Science Snippets are gone. We use the app on the go and it’s nice to be able to have some info to read and talk with my kids about. Also, I wish the timeline song was on there. And it would be cool if there was an auto-play feature for either all the memory for one week or all of one subject..Version: 2.00
Would love to see this feature added...Love the convenience of having access to these songs on this app! But, I would love to see a feature where we can play all the material and songs from each week one after the other in a loop without having to go to each subject and week to get to the song. Kind of like a week by week playlist? This would be amazing! Thanks!.Version: 2.00
Missing extra history and science infoI like the visuals with math and some of the updates. Majorly disappointed that they removed the extra history info, and the science snippets. They were so handy for quick answers to questions. The app does show which history cards to read corresponding info, but, to me, a big draw for the app was all the info in one place easy to find..Version: 2.00
Learning On the GoThis app is perfect for my daughter to practice during travel time. We spend a lot of time in the car and keeping everything mobile avoid the bulky book bag. The ability to look ahead allows her to spend more time flushing out personal interest..Version: 1.20
Not as good as cycle 3Pro: it has the memory work, history songs, Latin songs, and its user friendly.
Cons: you have to swipe for it to play, there are not interactive or game elements and it doesn’t have the preposition or timeline song.
Also, the cycle 3app had science snippets and extra history info. Those were handy and I miss them in this cycles version..Version: 2.00
Updated!I’ve had this app for several years. I was happy to see that when the curriculum updated from 4th edition to 5th edition i didn’t need to pay for the app again. My kindergartener uses this to review while I’m working with one on one in other subjects with my older child..Version: 2.00
Good but not GreatDisappointed with what did not come with the app. For the hefty price of the app, you would think it would include everything but unfortunately it hardly includes any of the songs, the timeline section doesn’t even includes words (just pictures), and no Presidents..Version: 3.00
Great Tool!I hesitated to buy this app based on negative reviews found here. I'm glad I asked a friend and learned that it's actually a great resource. It DOES contain songs. Maybe not every song found on the CD's but it definitely has the songs I need for my kindergartner. I'm so glad I purchased this rather than the CD's. Great interactive resource for my daughter and me..Version: 1.20
Builds happy memories!My grandkids LOVE this app! My special needs granddaughter even operates the entire set herself, reviewing all the weeks! At other times, it is a family or a sisters event and just a pleasurable, instructive, enjoyable part of the kids days, weeks, and years..Version: 2.10
Could use some workI just purchased this app. It’s good so far. I don’t like that I’m unable to skip through the narration/songs. I have to listen to it from the beginning. My kids want to listen to the song sometimes not the narration in the beginning..Version: 3.00
Would like the UpdateI’m new to see and I just purchased this APP today not knowing there will be a new APP coming soon! You guys should note that! I hope this one gets updated or else I would like a refund so I can purchase the new APP..Version: 1.20
PLEASE UPDATE App for Cycles 1, 2, & 3We wish to use the Cycle 1 app beginning in August but the app has not been updated in 3 years. The app does not have the same info as the new 2018 Foundations Guide.
We have used the Cycle 2 & 3 apps the past 2 years.
It would be great if all 3 apps had the timeline song included..Version: 1.20
No timeline song?This app is helpful in many ways but lacking the timeline song of all things. Overpriced for lacking key study materials. I wish tests were available for Memory Masters. Needs more..Version: 2.10
Timeline songThe timeline song is the only way to remember the entire timeline easily. Please add it to this rather expensive app. Please consider songs for the other subjects as well. We remember history the best because of the songs..Version: 2.10
Excellent toolHistory and math include the songs. Science includes links to Snippets. Very useful for capturing students' attention and one more medium for reinforcing material. I have all three and find the cost money put to good use!.Version: 1.20
Foundations Cycle 1 Memory WorkThis app is not right so it should not be like this instead it needs to be the way that it is on my other older iPad Mini that I just got on July 1, 2015..Version: 2.10
Finally updated!Have been using CC for past 3yrs. Excellent homeschooling program. This app gives basic structure of the whole Cycle 1 curriculum. Children love it. Thanks for the update!.Version: 2.00
Great for ReviewI love having all our memory work at my fingertips. We use this app twice a day for a quick review - once in the morning and once before bed..Version: 1.20
Great for CC FamiliesIf you understand Classical Conversations and you follow the classical model for home education, then this app will be very useful. My kids use it daily to review their memory work..Version: 1.20
Falls asleep constantlyApp is very useful for our daily memory work, but I have to keep my finger hovering over the screen to keep it from going to sleep every few minutes, even in the middle of a song. Royal pain. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!.Version: 2.00
Homeschool momI love this app! It is a perfect way to review when out and about or at home. You can even access the "Science Snippets" and "History Highlights!".Version: 1.20
RefundAfter realizing I could buy all the songs needed on ITunes I don’t have any use for this app. If the app was just recently bought, and never used, is it possible to get a refund?.Version: 2.00
UpdateAre we expecting an update for the app with the 5th edition changes? I bought the app a month ago and was surprised to see that it wasn’t updated..Version: 1.20
Love it !I love it for on the go review, it’s also helpful for tutor prep and community day. My kids can easily use the app when I need them to do their review and I can’t sit with them. Very convenient!.Version: 2.10
