Ratings and Reviews
Bad App on IPad
I had a lot of problems downloading this app. Crashes, won't download completely, and then I try to delete it, it just keeps trying to download a non-functioning version. I still cannot delete this app and it still tries to download every week for over three months now!
This is simply one of the coolest things I've ever seen, it really blew my mind. The guys behind this app and game think on a whole different level. There's not much out there to compare it too (that I know of), but I found the whole concept to be very well done. From the visuals, to the sound effects/voices and music, it was very high quality and the use is very intuitive.
The best proof though came from my three oldest kids (8, 6 and 4) who all took turns with it. They were hooked immediately. It not only provides them with a lot of enjoyment, but has also given my wife and I new leverage to encourage good behavior. "No Rocks in My Socks if you don't behave." works like a charm.
Really great stuff, I would highly recommend it.
Rockin Rocks in My Socks App!
The Rocks in My Socks story was created with a lot of heart and soul behind it. The book is also loaded with a lot of fun activities for kids to play with. The 3D Augmented Reality Activities really allow these activities to come to life as if you were right there living in the Dino world along with Oscar, Gracie and the rest of the Dino team. I shared these such activities with kids in the hospital and it really brightened their day as they loved learning through the activities and seeing how adorable the dinosaur characters are. Fantastic job to the team at Balance Studios. You rocked it!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
