What's New in Version 1.0.1
Minor bug fixes
Interesting and Cool!
I'm learning about American politics and the Presidents in school and thought this might be fun to check out since it was from Disney. I was right (I love it when I'm right). I like the Hall of Presidents and the American place at Epcot since it feels like you're living a part of history. This app is different but the animation is super cool and I enjoyed all of the fun facts. I learned a lot about ALL of the Presidents. I now just wish everyone would be nice to each other.
Good App but....
I agree with the general opinion that this is a politically bias app but that isn't the biggest issue. The freeze ups that happen while the app is trying to be opened or you are trying to swiftly move from president to president.
All around its a winner but please get rid of the bugs!
Disney does it well
Our 9 year old son loves this app and has taken a real interest in learning more about our Presidents and U.S. history.
