As previously stated I had no sound. THANKS TO THE QUICK REPLY AND RESEARCH from the web designers and ZeeAnn for figuring out that I had the mute button on! I didn't even know I had a mute button. OUTSTANDING customer service, KUDOS to all of you!!!
This app looks great and looks like it has interesting content, however, when I play the videos I get pictures but no sound. The videos are most of the content in the app, which does tend to limit the educational value. It's free, so nothing lost, but not a great deal gained either.
