Ratings and Reviews

Horrendous experience

Botched Christmas

Purchased a month sub before committing to an annual one only to find out the money was pulled from my account but no subscription is active on the app. Reinstalled the app, nothing, logged in through my computer on the website, nothing.
For this to happen in a day and age of refined digital automation means they're not taking their product seriously and most of all they don't care about their customer base.

Poor interface for picture books


I bought this and the accompanying one-month subscription for my daughter, but I found many of the books hard to appreciate, as the reader defaults to showing two pages at a time in landscape mode, and it cannot be made to show one page at a time without tedious pinch zooming, even when that would make the text and images much larger.

This app could learn a lot from all of the excellent comic-viewing apps. Children's books are an equally visual media, and it seems silly to treat them as static pages.

Took my money just fine

This app never worked properly for me. I bought a one month membership so that I could download some books and it charged me a month for each book I downloaded. Then the next day it said my membership had expired and I couldn't access the books I had downloaded. I'm not sure it is supposed to work for Canadian iPads. Anyway, there are other places to find Sesame Street books. Deleted it.
