Ratings and Reviews
Cute graphics with fun activities, but there is no organization to tasks from a skill acquisition basis. Without that progression, the app isn't helpful as a teaching tool. Also, I could not identify a way to exit once I'd begun a level.
As someone who has liked using other apps by the folks at Duck Duck Moose, I had expected higher quality from this product. I'm disappointed.
Can the progress be synced across multiple devices?
My two year old loved it, until the roaring lion, (which sounds realistic and bares his teeth), scared her. She was alright with the crocodile at first, but now when ever these characters come up she immediately shuts down the app. What good is that? One other thing, with the feeding giraffe activity, the options immediately disappear whether or not the kid got the right answer. I would like to see answers return to their original spot if they are wrong and the giraffe doesn't eat them, and them have them faded so they cannot select them again. - Actually this would go for all of the activities that are apart of this app. Highlighting what is correct or wrong is a big part of learning. These two improvements would make this a five star app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
