Frustrating to Use

My son loves seeing the stories come to life, and somehow I ended up dumping $30 into books for him... and every one of them but Sleepy Cheetah downloads a little over half the book, gets you to a point where you think it’s actually going to work, then stops working. The pages will still flip, but there’s no animations, and no audio. And don’t even get me started on the games. Nothing works. You can tap on things to your hearts content, but there’s nothing to actually play or explore. Really annoyed I spent $30 on a half baked app, no matter how much my kid loves it.

Still a great app but

I wish the book purchases shared across my kids iPads and please highlight the words being read so they can follow along. Otherwise keep improving and doing what you’re doing.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for the feedback Optimusppprime - we're working on cross-device sharing and hope to have an update on that soon! Highlighting the words is also on the roadmap but a bit further out... stay tuned!!

This works great with my iPhone 8plus and iPad Pro. Kids love it. It’s really fun and different. Thank you for something different and fresh to keep them learning.
