Good app, great magazines


I thought I had ended my subscription to Highlights Hidden Pictures at least six months ago. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t completely read the information when I first subscribed, so all I really did was delete the app. It would be very customer friendly to make the process a little more obvious. I’ve always liked Highlights for all ages of children, but think they should make this one change to the app.
My only reason for not needing the app on my phone is that my grands all have their own devices and no longer ask to play on mine.

Thanks for your review. We're so sorry to learn that you want to cancel. Please contact us at so we can help!

I have to agree, it’s not free. 👎


Advertising this as a free app is simply false advertisement. Magazines don’t say you get all their issues for free and then give you one issue free. They specify it’s a free issue or a trial. They don’t put the price of the actual subscription at the very bottom of their description like this app has done. And yes, I have seen the developer responses saying “We invite everyone to try it for free”... Again, you need specify that as the very first line in your description. Aside from the fact that it’s not free, $3.99 is a ridiculous price. 4 dollars one time is too much for such a simple game, let alone every month! You should be ashamed of yourself. Also you can save your reply, I’m sure it’ll be the same as every other.

Not free, 7 day wait for puzzles


My children and I enjoy finding the hidden objects. Although advertising a free app that isn’t free is not good. On top of that we had it before canceled our subscription, and we the kids got their iPads, we downloaded the app again. Well much to my surprise it changed me for the months in between subscriptions. So instead of being billed 3.99 it was 10$ and some change. On top of the app NOT actually being free you pay for an app that you have to wait 7 days for the next set of puzzles to load! Again the puzzles are fun, but it’s not worth 3.99 a month when my children can’t even get new puzzles but once every 7 days.

Developer Response

Hi, I am so sorry about that. The app is free to download and the first 30 days are free. We charge a monthly subscription fee so the child can receive the new puzzles each month. When the app is deleted, it does not cancel the service. If you would like to cancel your subscription, please email us at so we can assist you. I have also logged your feedback about only receiving new puzzles every 7 days into our Voice of the Customer System. Thank you.
