What's New in Version 1.8
- Minor bug fixes and content updates
This sounds like a very interesting tech demo at the very least. Unfortunately, after going through the dialog you realize it doesn't matter what you say. The response of the characters is static. This is particularly disturbing compared to what is in the app's description regarding advanced speech recognition. It also makes you wonder why they need to store your child's conversations on their server if it has no affect on the dialog. The actual dialog is not exactly kid friendly or educational. It includes slang words and several characters with teenage attitude problems. Most of the characters also speak to fast. The subjects of the conversations can get deep, quickly.
If this app worked, I'd suggested trying it out with caution. Since the description of how this app works is misleading, I'd suggest avoiding it.
A ton of colorful personalities!
This app features talking animals with tons of different zany personalities. It teaches empathy, turn-taking in conversation, and there’s even a little bit of detective work. It’s fun!
i love taking to the animals and solving their problems. I have helped them all. Please give us more animals!!
