Not what it used to be
When we first got this app, it was great! The starter pack helped my son learn about volcanos and planets at the age of 2. Now that he is starting to read, he wants to read those books. But, the previously purchased starter pack doesn't appear on the shelf after a "successful install". Tried several things and still not there 😔
Used to a great app
I have been using this app with both English and Spanish speaking students for a couple years. It was a great resource. Now I have to "repurchase" books, pled with the App Store to be refunded only to have the items I repurchased to disappear from my iPad. So annoying and disappointing.
Takes your money doesn't give the books
I love this app. Purchased the starter app, but when I tried to buy another one it took my money, but would not down load the books. So basically wasted my money on nothing
