Crap update

Since #2 came out #1 has sucked and half the time it doesn't work. I paid for the app so you should still provide a quality app.

Cute

This app is really cute. There's an interactive story line about a gorilla band. The reader has to tap various gorillas to get them to play in the band, and a cute little song is included at the end. Children can choose to be read to or read it themselves. One feature that's really nice is the "3 second feature." For the parent information and outside links, users have to hold the button for at least 3 seconds before the app will respond to the request. I read that this is so students can't visit anything they're not supposed to. :) You can also make sure students listen to all the words before moving on the next part. Love that, too! In the "extras" portion, you can play in the "gorilla band studio." This is a fun way for students to practice instrument recognition. I'm definitely recommending this to the music teacher at my school...I think she'll love it!

Have I got a story to tell! I came across this app through a community and decided to download it for my grandchildren to get them to test it before recommending it to teachers. Well, we listened to the adorable story and was able to "poke" at each request. My 5 year old and 3 year old were mesmerized from the get go! as if that was not enough, they begged for it to be placed on their own iPad when they went home. The next day, my daughter called me telling me that she can't possibly get that song out of the house. They sang it over and over acting it out! Thanks alot Mom, she said. Anything to make those grandkids smile! I recommend it to all children of all ages. Great stuff"
