Great app and concept!

I have never written a review on an app. This app is great. I try to personally do a lot of mindful meditation when I can and I’ve been wanting my 6 and 3 yr old to do something like mindful meditation but never knew what to do. This was awesome and they loved it. They want to hatch more. My 6 year old wants a legendary and elite! The downside is when I tell them to stare and focus they both shake their heads when the egg shakes. Haha -They look kind of funny. My only suggestion would be to add 2-10 minutes as individual time options. This would be great for timeouts or just a break from everything. Well done, nice concept! It’s been 10 minutes and they are still talking about going after the elite, and wondering what other types of species there might be. 👍


Great app, only a one issues

This app is really great! It works well and I have gotten off my phone more often. The only problem is that I had started a 20 minute egg, and waited the allotted amount of time. Once the egg was ready I clicked hatch, got a Figaro, then I went to my home screen to make a call, and when I went back to start another egg, my Figaro was gone. My mom hatched another 15 minute egg after mine disappeared, and the same thing happened to her. I hatched a 5 minute egg after, and got a Sheepsy, but again when I went back they were both gone again. They appeared the next morning, but they kept disappearing another few times after that. Other than those few glitches (I’m assuming that they’re glitches) the app works well.

Developer Response

Hey SPACEUNICORN thanks for the feedback, glad to hear you and your Mom gave it a try! The problem you are describing is intended behavior; we designed the app to motivate you to stay inside Hatch until the egg is incubated AND hatched. Next time you focus, try not to leave the app until AFTER you click 'Hatch' and see your new creature. Good luck!

Has this been resolved?

Would you consider changing the review ?

Thanks so much.


This is great! But..

I love this app. I’m kinda addicted to my phone and this app helps me enjoy life and not have to worry about my phone. But I just did a 25 minute session, and I unlocked a creature and got 200 points for the global competition and it glitched out, and I lost my points and the character. I just did a five minute session, and got another character along with 200 points, and my other 200 points weren’t there. I also can’t join the globe competition, as I tried at least 6 times. I’d rate this app a 4.5 star. Overall, this app is awesome and I recommend to anyone. Thx for ur time!
