Why does the APP ask me to download content?

Champs is a very lightweight (small size) application (APP). It has been designed to download only what you need. We do not want to fill up your device memory with things you do not need.

Required DLC means "Required DownLoadable Content".

When the APP prompts you to download files, you will need this content to move onto the next section.

In the example below, 6MB of content is needed for you to read the next book. Clicking on "Okay" will download the audio and images needed to create the book on your device.

What happens if I have Multiple Devices with the same User ID

Recommendation: Do not change devices!

Champs requires some local data on your device to calculate information like your word progress score. We recommend that you do not change devices. We do store "stars" on the server, so that information is recorded and can be restored on another device. However, please avoid changing devices if you want to get an accurate record of your progress.

If you do change the device (not recommended), you will be logged out of the other device. You cannot use the same User ID at the same time on 2 devices.

You can use your smartphone or tablet to access from any web browser.


What is the minimum version Operating System supported?

Please make sure you have the latest version of your device operating system.

Champs supports the following mobile operating system versions and above:


Operating System Version API
Apple iOS 12.5.4  
Apple iPadOS 13  
Android Lollipop 5.1 API level 22
Kindle Fire OS 5.0 (based on Lollipop 5.1) API level 22
Does Champs require a strong and reliable internet connection?

Champs is an online enabled APP. That means that when you Log In, download content, complete an activity, the APP will try to connect to our server. Sometimes, when the internet connection is poor or unreliable, you might experience the screen freezing or a blue wheel will spin on the screen. We have tried to anticipate many types of errors that occur when connecting online. In most cases an error message will pop-up.

What should I do when I cannot connect:

  • First try restarting the APP.
  • Try turning on and off your device Wifi connection or 4G connection. This might help to reestablish the network to the internet.
  • If you are on Wifi, try to turn off your Wifi connection and connect via 4G. If you CAN connect via 4G then your Wifi connection might not be strong and reliable.
What is the Word Dex?

The Word Dex is your personal collection of words. Like a Pokédex, or Rolodex, the Word Dex has your collection of word cards. Each time you complete a story, the Word Dex is updated with your word mastery.

Reading Interactive Storybooks

During a reading session, you will perform sentences contained in the stories. When you make an error, the system will present either 1, 2 or 3 flashcards. These are the words that you will need to perform again.


A successful "try" may give you a new star or award you with a medal. 


Opening the Word Dex
From the Main Menu, tap on the Word Dex icon.


All of the words performed in reading a story will appear here. The list will show how many stars and medals you has been awarded.


A filter is available for you to sort words according to:
Book Title
Number of Stars
Type of Medals
