What's New in Version 1.0.1
Now it is easier to see the cool activities each pack contains.
A few users told us the parental gate message froze on them, so we thank them all for contacting us and we are fixing it in this version
Minor enhancements and bug fixes also included.
Camera no longer works
My niece used to love playing with this app, and I would have rated it 5 stars, but the camera in the app has randomly stopped working. Now, whenever you press it, the app immediately crashes and has to be reopened.
Aside from recording her voice and roaring, the camera was mainly what she liked to play with. If this can be fixed, I will amend my rating. I have an iPad Air and am running iOS 8.1. I had the issue before updating to the latest iOS.
My grandkids are very disappointed and I'm upset I paid money for an app that doesn't work completely please fix it or refund money thankyou
