Aquarium Mystery Solved
I bought this app for my low incidence disability class because we are studying this piece, and I am so glad I did. As others have said, the app is beautifully illustrated, animated, and orchestrated. However, I noticed some frustration in the reviews with the “Aquarium” song part. In order to get to the video part, you have to tilt the screen so that the water can spill over and “dry out” the video link. Then you can click it and get to the video. Also, at the beginning of the app, there is a little “i” button in the lower left hand corner that will give you some hints and clues if you tap it (although the aquarium hint is not there). Best of all, I like the interactive animated animals that walk across the screen—they react when you tap them while the song is playing. My students will certainly keep engaged with this feature.
My daughter bought this app and it worked fine but it's not working for me after I downloaded it on my iPad. I shut off my iPad and restarted it but that didn't help. Then I tried finding a spot within the app to turn on the sound. Next option is to delete it and redone load it. I'm pretty frustrated with it.
Delightful but buggy
Fix the bugs for a 5 star rating. Aquarium doesn't work at all. No way within app to send help request either, so I have no choice but no leave feedback this way.
