What's New in Version 1.5
Added 64-bit support for iOS 11.
Such a lovely resource
There are a few UI bugs which make setting up tricky but after that it's simple and effective.
There's not quite as much info as the book (handed out to all new parents in Scotland), but it's bite-sized and a good prompt to go and read it. It became an exciting ritual for us to read each week and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
Good idea, Bad Implementation
This app is half way there but lacks some features, and the User Interface needs some serious updating.
It would be nice to see Mum and Dad being able to “link” their apps so the lists are synced.
The UI is a bit of a mess, things are all over the place, and it’s not been optimised for the iPhone 5, let alone the 6, 7, 8 or X!
The content is good, but everything requires a persistent internet connection. It would be far better if the content was part of the app and the app was updated more frequently. This would allow users to read the articles when offline...
