Ratings and Reviews
My 4 y.o. Loves it!
I was annoyed at first by the "lost" adds that we bought, but that problem was easily resolved and haven't had that problem since. We've purchased most of the adds. It sure beats picking up real magnets wherever they may fall.
My son, who is still learning to communicate, has autism and we use this app to express relative sizes, pairing objects, and just play cooperatively. One question, though.. Why don't the basic magnets come in yellow, as shown in the opening screen? In fact, why not add more colors to them in general? That would be a welcome (free please) update.
I paid...but won't save to computer
I downloaded the free app and my kid loved it. I thought it is a good app. I added a few of the sets so it converted to the paid version on the iPad. However, it will not save to my computer as the paid version...only the lite. I have two iPads and only the lite version will download to the other iPad. This is wrong! All the other apps I paid for downloads to all the systems I have attached to my iTunes account.
Note only that, I can't comment on the paid version since it says I don't own it. Well...I do...I paid for it. What bad business practices. Not honest.
Don't pay for it!
My children love using this app and I think it is a cute idea! However, I had to replace my iPad and download my apps onto my new one. When I did this, I lost everything that I had paid for, which was about $10 worth of upgrades! Very unhappy! I cannot contact the company that has created this app to try to resolve this issue! That do not provide contact info. If you have any problems like this you are on your own! Such a shame! I would have rated this a five if it weren't for this problem!
