Customer Reviews

Sweet but sadly still defaults to US spelling

There are two versions of this app on the App Store, My Mom's the Best & My Mum's the Best. Being from Australia, I naturally purchased the Mum version but was disappointed that the app icon is written using My Mom and that you have to select the Australian flag each time you open the app for it to change to the UK/AU version. It's frustrating that it doesn't save the defaults and confusing for the little ones learning to read.

Otherwise, it's a sweet app with lovely animations. Nice and calm without too many bells and whistles. My kids enjoyed playing with it :)
