Phonics app for ipads SSP

Is your child learning phonics systematically at school, and using SSP or Letters and Sounds (s a t p i n m etc) to learn graphemes systematically? They are learning commonly used grapheme to phoneme correspondences (GPCs) and reading phonics books / decodable readers to practice blending them quickly, so that they can read the words with automaticity. 
The SSP Spelling Piano app is a fantastic resource for parents with tablets!
