Only able to edit pictures you've just taken not from your camera roll. Pictures have to be edited at the time you take the picture which is impossible with kids, not worth the money

What a delight! Lots of fun!


We've been playing around with this all weekend (the lovely weather helped). It's really nice to find a children's app that promotes activity and gets them using my iPad in a new way. The secure parents feature that let's you turn on/off the download camera roll button is clever, means it doesn't get clogged up. Good value for money.



I'm finding this frustrating to use. The parents' section isn't easy to use and I am still trying to figure out some fairly basic functions - unless it's so basic, they're not included. You don't seem to be able to use existing photos and it is not clear how to save to camera roll or delete. The graphics are good but you don't get a great deal with this app. It's a bit disappointing.
