Gone then Crash
I purchased this app for $2.99 excited to try it with my child. Before handing it to her I went through the demo and instructions. My first thought is that the menu system is much too complex for a kid that is trying to learn shapes- she would need my constant help. I'm thinking that if a child is advanced enough to figure out how to use this app they are way past learning shapes and how to use them.
I did figure it out and began assembling a stick figure- it's a big task. Halfway through the figure just disappeared. As I was trying to find a back button the app crashed. It has already exceeded my frustration threshold... I won't go as far as to go after a refund but I certainly won't be trying this app again until they fix it.
One of the best apps I have seen in a while! Elegantly designed, easy to use, but also open to limitless possibilities. Haven't experienced any bugs at all. Took a little time for my younger child to get the hang of it, but now both my kids are enthralled. Definitely recommend for kids as well as creative adults.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
