What's New in Version 3.0.10
Thanks for updating!
We got so excited about the school start we decided to make the packs free for a week (offer ends Monday 5 September)! Get the packs and discover more wonders of the atlas!
The Barefoot team has also been on a bug hunt, squashing some of those small beasties and making your experience even better.
Amazing Fun App!
I love this app! It's filled with beautiful with a hand drawn charm to all the animated art in it. It has a lot of fun facts and quirkiness to it that kids would love. I don't understand why people are complaining here but I had no issues loading this on my iPhone 6S or iPad Air. People ranting about space, really? Get a life. The high resolution animated art and other aspects of the design require it. I think people complain too much and don't appreciate things. I've used this app for a couple years and it never gets old just for fun and can't wait to introduce my daughter to it :)
Very poor presentation
I purchased this app for my 5-year old daughter. It was based on the sales pitch it has in the summary. 4 million downloads and and top 10 App Store pick! Now my impression after spending 20 minutes with this is - really?
I want to jump straight to what's wrong here but first let me point out what's working. The globe is the best idea of this app. Very smooth transition for what could have been complicated multi-level menus. This is ideal for exploration.
Sadly, the good part ends right there. The music is so boring and so is the announcer's voice. Switching between packs should not be required, but it would be ok if the navigation between the packs was half as intuitive as moving around the globe. However, it appears that the app was not built with expansion packs in mind, perhaps implemented as an afterthought. The app freezes while switching packs without any feedback on whether the selection was successful.
I would not recommend this app for children until it's more engaging. It has the potential to be a very useful tool for young children, but it's not there yet.
Update actually won't download
Every time I try to update the app, the update either goes very slowly or it just doesn't work. Either way, it never fully updates. It just won't download. But from what I've seen from the other reviews, maybe I don't want the update. Don't misunderstand! I love the app! But time to go back to the drawing board before moving on.
