Great idea. Works well.
The app is great and I love the functionality. Everything is pretty intuitive and works as expected.
Delightful and Whimsical!
It's so exciting to finally see the stories come to life. They are all so lovingly crafted and beautiful. Wind Up Boy was especially rich.
Fun! Innovative! All the explanation points!
A fun mix of words, art, music, and narration. Kinda surprised this hasn't been before.
