Awesome Customer Service
I purchased this app after getting a recommendation from my sons teacher. After reading the other two reviews about bugs I went ahead and bought it on my iPad Pro and as warned I too had loads of bugs. BUT the customer support to rectify my issues were AMAZING, without doubt the best customer support I've received from any business.
If it gets the endorsement from schools and has this support I can see this app going far!
I found a few glitches as well, however Twinkl responded very quickly, and the issues seem to be resolved now.
A great app for learning phonics!
Would be great - if it worked
Very glitchy, freezes frequently, gives incorrect answers (congratulated son for guessing 'map' and 'rake' rhymed, said he was wrong when he guessed 'log' and 'dog' rhymed). A waste of money unfortunately.
