What is Kobi?

KOBI is the best dyslexia-specialized eReader on the market for kids.

Reading with KOBI is simpler, painless, and produces far better results than your average e-reader.

How does KOBI support dyslexic readers?
Kobi uses proven methods to support dylexic readers, along with an innovative approach tested by the experts and approved by kids. With more than 1 million minutes read in the past year, nearly 97% of our users agree:

Kobi is the best eReader for dyslexics on the market.

Running out of time?
Kobi promotes independent reading, meaning you don’t have to babysit your child while they practice reading. Instead, you can make dinner, fold laundry, or take care of whatever is on your to-do list. Let Kobi help with the "learning to read" part of the day!

How does Kobi provide quality reading?
We believe a quality reading session begins with a great story. That’s why we put a lot of effort into high-quality, carefully selected content your kid will love.

Our stories use words your kid should already know and are progressively getting more and more difficult to maximize learning progress. The guided reading feature suggests which stories your child should be reading based on their skill level, so you don’t have to worry about content at all.

Have a specific book your kid loves to read? You can import any text to Kobi via the book-scanning feature and make it reading-friendly!

How does Kobi make reading easier?
During a reading session, dyslexic children often have difficulty focusing on the words in front of them. Kobi helps by assigning colors to certain letters, making the words easier to read. There's also an updated finger-tracking feature that makes background distractions disappear, ensuring smooth reading progress for your child.

We all know that kids can get stuck on difficult words. With our double-tap feature, Kobi helps pronounce the tricky word so kids can keep on reading instead of getting frustrated.

And for the best reading experience ever, Kobi can be completely personalized. We understand that every kid is different, especially kids who struggle with dyslexia. So if some of the colors or features in Kobi aren't your child's favorites, simply swap them for ones they love!

Other benefits of Kobi:
Reading with Kobi helps kids stay motivated, improves reading accuracy and comprehension, increases reading rates, and has been tested by professional educators so you can feel confident that Kobi truly helps kids with dyslexia, ADHD and other learning difficulties learn to read.

Motivation is key to a successful learning session. When a child is motivated, he or she can face any obstacle, solve any problem, or climb any kitchen cabinet (right?!). Kobi was designed to keep kids motivated for the duration of the reading session and beyond.

Reading Accuracy is one of the two main ingredients of Reading Fluency. When Reading Accuracy improves, Reading Comprehension increases as well. Kobi’s features were designed with this in mind and can be customized to meet your child’s needs.

Reading Rate is the second ingredient for Reading Fluency. Because Kobi structures texts so they are easy to read, your child's Reading Rate increases dramatically.

Kobi has been reviewed by professional educators and was awarded the "Expert-Approved" badge by Google. Parents look for apps and games that are both enriching and entertaining for their children. In the Expert-Approved program, teachers and children’s education and media specialists recommend high-quality apps for children on Google Play.

I wish I had this app when I was at that age! It’s just such a game changer - my daughter loves how the app supports her only when she needs it. She gained the confidence she needs to become an independent reader.
