Ratings and Reviews
Good but could be great
This app is great for my class of Kinders to use. Fairly straightforward, fun options, and the kids love it. I don’t like setting it up however, as I have not found a way to sync the author accounts across all devices. I have to enter all my students manually on all of our iPads. I’d love for there to be a way to export my class list accounts via airdrop, Bluetooth, or something so I don’t have to enter the names on each device. I’d also love for there to be a picture password option for each account so students can’t accidentally edit others books. Thanks!
Developer Response ,
That's great feedback! It could definitely be painful to manually add each student. We used to have a feature that did the syncing that would help with this, but very few people used it so we decided to drop it. However, if it's just a class list, maybe we can make that work!
Recent updates are GREAT!
I have used this app for a couple of years with as young as 3 yrs old but mostly with 1st and 2nd graders. This is an intuitive app for kids to express themselves. The developers listened to many suggestions I made from experiences using this app with kids. With this update, they incorporated almost all of my suggestions. This is just a straight forward easy to use app. It is worth the $$. The kids LOVE using it.
I have used this app multiple times. I just upgraded to premium version for the second time. I just spent hours creating a book, only to not be able to open the book. Every time I try to open it, the app crashes. So incredibly frustrating! I have tried many different ways to contact this company, and even their website question page keeps giving me an error page saying my email us not valid, tried to message on Facebook, says address is invalid. I loved this app! I just want it to work!!! Please help!!!!

Hi Abby, I sent you a message on our support platform, but perhaps you didn't get it. I will try sending you an email just in case to see if you get my response. I'm happy to try to get this fixed for you!
