What's New in Version 3.0.9
Thanks for updating! The Barefoot team has been on a bug hunt, squashing some of those small beasties and making your experience even better.
Here's what we did:
– If you're on iPad, the settings menu will stay where it's supposed to, as will the quiz options.
– We found and fixed a weird bug that caused occasional crashes for people who were looking at country panels on the hour.
– We added some new blurring effects so that everything continues to look gorgeous when you view a list.
As always, if you're having any issues send us an email at email@example.com and we'll be able to help.
If you're enjoying the app, don't forget to leave a review. It really helps!
No Sound Without Earbuds
I wanted to order this software for my niece, so decided to try it out myself before ordering. Like other reviewers, I noted the long download time and large footprint. However, it features excellent graphics and short, concise explanations geared toward children 7-12 years of age.
I'm more than a little disappointed that there is no sound or music with the app until you use your earbuds. Why on earth are we required to use earbuds to hear the soundtrack? Makes no sense, and prevented the app from getting a better rating.
Still Harvests Data by Default
I recommend those who haven't bought the app, to avoid this app. And those who bought the app to not make any in app purchases until the developers stop harvesting data. As long as they harvest by default, the developers are not to be trusted. And the fact so many people have complained and they still refuse to stop just adds to the long list of reasons not to trust them or support them.
Not available on iPhone?
It won't let me download the app. I download other apps fine. (Even big ones that require wireless) i checked my phone memory and it has at least 15 giga space. What's wrong?
