Cannot access Pro features after paying

Pro requires a three finger tap to access (a parental gate to prevent little ones from accidentally customizing settings) but I cannot get it to recognize a three finger tap. I’ve tried multiple people tapping on multiple, different iPads. It’s only worked once randomly.

The gesture works fine on my phone. Not sure what is wrong.

Awesome!!!!!! Need I say more???

Awesome!!!! Need I say more? Pro is the way to go. My kid has been using this app for years and it is still able to grow and continue to help.

Letter order

My letters say A-Z order but are still in a strange order. The rating is low because I’ve emailed multiple times and have never gotten a response. I’m happy with the actual teaching of the letters but have received no response which is really unhelpful and discouraging.
