Lite version only allows one student name to be logged and has 25 passages - 1.99 –paid version takes unlimited students and has over 250 passages for grades K-4. Lite version covers 9 levels of flesh-Kincaid readability – paid has 46 levels 0.0 through 4.7 Though I do not feel there is any difference in the reading level and K does not mean grade level. Student must be trusted to read to make sure that this works. Easy to cheat the system.
iPod Touch -$.99 common folk tales, 17 books, 9 in this format and of higher quality – great art – read aloud done by children whose cadence can be off so not always good for fluent reading examples – entertaining though check size of font on page may send wrong messages to kids.

Same company as timed reading – also counting bills and coins
