Good, but keeps crashing
October 22, 2013
I have loved watching my 5-year-old play this game. She even asks for it. Unfortunately, after I bought a "Bid Wad of Coins" to watch her progress - it began having problems. I think this also coincided with the OS upgrade. Regardless of the reason it malfunctioned - I hope the developers find a solution quickly!
The 4 stars are based on a fully functioning app. It would be 5 stars if the child could transfer their progress to another device. I had this on my iPad and my iPhone and she has two separate profiles as a result. And, when it crashed, I tried a reinstall and she lost all progress (and I lost my $9.99 in coins purchase). I wish there was a "back-up" option and a way to download a back-up to a different device if a switch is needed (like when you get a new phone, for example). I've submitted to customer service. We'll see how responsive they are. It looks like my problem isn't unique, so I'm hopeful for a solution soon.

I lowered my review by one more star since there has been no progress on the resolution of the crashing problem over several months. I've even lost "coin" credit and was told to seek reimbursement from Apple.
My girls LOVE this app!!!
I rarely write reviews and here I am writing one. My girls LOVE this program. They can each have their own account, set at their own level, and work at their own pace. My 4 year old plays easy and gets stuck rarely, my 6 year old plays level 3 and rarely needs help. They love unlocking new clothes and stuff for their girls. The program is not an entire math curriculum but it does cover adding, patterns, number sequencing, and matching. The program is truly free. The only cost would be if I wanted reports on their progress or a certificate to print and have promptly left on my counter to be thrown away later. My only issue is I wish the girl didn't look quite so.... trashy. The girl is constantly huffing and rolling her eyes- annoying on a computer and unacceptable in real life. All the clothes are skin-tight and short. A program for little kids should have little kids as avatars, not huffy, questionably dressed, teenagers.
Like covering broccoli in cheese sauce...
Kids have so much fun with this, they don't even realize they're learning. My AD/HD 8 year old just did math for an hour and wanted to do more. The "exercises" are short and the topic varies from one to the next so it can keep a kid's attention, yet there is enough repetition to make the lessons stick. It's great instant feedback and reinforcement with level certificates, difficulty certificates, achievement certificates, achievement ribbons, island trophies and even gold coins to earn to spend updating your avatar. It lets you select grades K-2, but with the difficulty levels, both older and younger kids can use it, too. Great for keeping up the math skills over the summer.
We haven't hit a wall where we need to pay for full version/access yet, but if we do, this is one game for which I'd gladly pay.
