What's New in Version 1.0.1
Minor bug fixes
Good iPad app - problems with current iOs now
Our daughter has loved this app and it’s seen a lot of use by our family. I was recommending it to some friends in our homeschooling community but ran into a problem - since I just upgraded to the current iOs on my iPad, the app will not run past a frozen initial screen with no audio. There is no obvious way to contact support (I have been trying) so I am putting this concern into my review in hopes that someone keeps up with them and reads them once in a while. Please continue to support this app - it’s been a good one although expensive for an app - we’d like to continue using it, especially this year while we are focusing on our presidents and US history.
My boys love love love this app. It's taught them an amazing amount about our past presidents, but like the other recent reviews, we've run into a wall with the iPad update and it no longer works. Please fix this problem, Disney! This app is worth fixing and maintaining! Plus, it was an expensive one and I'd like to be able to continue to enjoy my purchase. Give us an update so my boys can continue to run around the house pretending to be Benjamin Harrison afraid to turn on a light switch!
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.
