Bugged and glitched out - then reset!

Kristyn Frost

I saw this app and was delighted with the idea, as my daughter already has another app just like it but it is not customizeable. I put in 3 words before she woke up from her nap and took her iPad from me. She saw it and played with it over and over and thought it was so cool. 5 minutes later she brought it to me and it was acting all weird... the pictures I'd added of myself, my husband and our son stopped showing up... so just on a white screen with the word blocks showing up. The sound wouldn't work on those pages at all and YES the volume was UP. I checked the customization screen and the pictures and recordings were still there, just wouldn't work in play mode. I told her sorry and told her to play another game. A few minutes later I saw her playing with the sightwords levels I'd deleted on there so she must have reset it.

So now I'm like.... WHY is it so easy to reset? WHY is there not an edit lock on it? Or is it possible that it just reset itself? I'm not going to pour my heart and soul into an app that my 2 year old can just tear apart in 2 seconds... and besides that, doesn't even work half the time. I had so many hopes for this app. I can't express how disappointed I am.

Perfect! Absolutely Perfect!


I finally succumbed to modern technology and this was the first education app I downloaded for my toddler. This app is exactly the simple, no frills, lowercase-word-recognition program I was seeking for my two-year-old. The recorded voice sounds like an encouraging kindergarten teacher who gets just the right amount of excited when a kid achieves a goal. Our daughter likes this one better than the “Endless” series that a friend recommended. I can see her enjoying this on special occasions for at least the next year. I wish this developer had more apps available!

Great Customizable App!!!


The apps from this company are a godsend. My 7 year old is intellectually ready to learn the concepts being presented at school. I have spent hours trying to create methods with manipulatives, like foam sticky letters, to do his spelling and other homework because he is still unable to write. This app allows me to add my own separate lists so he can study the same lists the other students are using. I have been so impressed with grasshopper apps. They allow my son the ability study independently and me free to complete something other than homework. Thank You!!!!!!!!'
