What's New in Version 1.6
App previews added
not iPhone 6 Plus compatible
I noticed there are a number of reviews for older versions saying it won’t run on the kid’s old iPad or old iOS or whatever. We had a similar problem the other direction (with the current version). It works OK on the iPads we have around, but when I had to loan my iPhone 6 Plus in a pinch (using Guided Access to protect my stuff!), we discovered it doesn’t work. The image is about 60% of full screen, and then the buttons don’t seem to work.
iPad 5 star/iPhone 1 star
Works great on our iPad and my almost 3 year old loves it and really gets a lot out of it (she loves the tv show). However on my iPhone 6 it is a completely different story: the buttons and commands don't work for many functions and the iPhone app does not recognize the extra dinosaur in-app purchase from our iPad.
