Ratings and Reviews
I love this app!
As a stay at home mom of a 5 month old and a 2 1/2 year old, this app helps add fun and learning into our days. It also makes me feel like I am able to bond with each of my girls individually where they are at developmentally. I love that you can mark your favorite activities or tell the app when an activity is either too easy or to difficult for your child. If you mark an activity as being too easy it will take it out of the rotation. If you mark an activity as too difficult it will add it back into the rotation in 3 weeks.
As a sleep deprived, busy mom who also wants to engage with her children, this app does all the thinking for me. When we have some free time all I have to do is go to today’s program and there is a list of fun, amazing ways to use that time while also fostering growth and development. I also love how it breaks down each activity into categories of Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Cognitive, Speech, Self Care and Social/Emotional activities.
Keep up the great work BabySparks!

Thank you so much for your nice comment. It means a lot to our whole team to receive this type of feedback. We hope that you and your little ones continue to enjoy BabySparks. Have a great day.
Unusable - paid lifetime subscription
Update: The developer did respond to my email by telling me to delete and download the app again. I was able to access the paid videos. However I still have to log in every time I try to use it and logging in requires typing in your full email and password. When you have a baby ready to play it’s incredibly inconvenient and prevents me from using it much. For an almost $40 app (I have never paid this much for an app), it is not worth it.
Despite paying the lifetime subscription, the subscription videos are locked and when I click on them, I am told to purchase a subscription again. When I look in the app to see my purchase history, it had no record of my purchase. However, I have an Apple receipt for the subscription and when I purchased it, it worked for a few days. In addition, I am constantly signed out and there is no option to save log in info or use fingerprint log in. As result I have to type my email and password every time. I have contacted the developer but so far I have received no response. There should be option to refund apps that do not work.

Hi - we are sorry about this. Clearly there was an issue at the moment of downloading the app to your device. We aim to answer every email that we receive within 24 hours, so if you haven't received an answer from us, perhaps we didn't get your email. Would you mind emailing us again at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can assist you?
Useful but annoying at times
Overall, it is a useful app; it helps with your child development and gives you idea what you can actually do with them.
There’s a couple things that annoy me though.
A new day starts at 12am, after which you can’t add or change anything in the previous day (check any completed exercises for instance). Often, I don’t have time for it before 12am. Thus, at the end of the day it is as if we’ve done nothing... and then at the end of the week, when they send you a report, they kind of rebuke you (in a very delicate form) for not doing enough with your child.
The other thing, it would’ve been so great if you could substitute exercises. Let’s say you can’t do this particular one today (you don't have the right equipment, your child is not in the mood, or you just don’t like the idea of doing it, etc.), and you do something else instead. You want it to count. Since you can’t, again it looks like you’ve accomplished nothing.
