Customer Reviews

so far so good

So far so good. I got this game for my 6yr old daughter that is currently in K. She started playing and at fist it was easy but the game progresses to sentences. She is loving it ! She is liking the rewards and is so far keeping her interested… but she just got it… so with that being said we will see how she keeps up with it. The only problem we have had with the app freezing was during in incoming call. My iPad is linked to my phone and when the phone rang it froze the game. It was an easy fix by closing the app completely and opening it again.

Would be a 5

Please help me fix my app. My children (ages 4 & 5) LOVE this app. However, since the iOS 8 upgrade, this app is now black when you begin playing. All that is viewable is a yellow pause/play button and yet I can hear all the sounds. Please help me fix this problem.

Filled with mistakes

This app was promising but in a couple days we've already seen two big mistakes. It asked my daughter to find the "sat" and shows a picture of a cat. Then it says "cat: S-A-T". At another point it asked which letter makes the "O" sound and the letter "o" was not one of the choices- very confusing for my daughter.
