Not all bundle apps loaded
I bought the $7.99 bundle, but the ABC Adventures on didn’t load (it said that it couldn’t). I deleted it so I could try reinstalling it. But when I went into the App Store, it’s that I never bought it. (The other two were there) Help please!
As the other two reviews say. There's no sound. I thought it was because my daughters iPad is a first generation, but it doesn't work on my iPad Pro either. Yes I have checked the volume on my device. It's not working on apple products. It does work on my daughter's new kindle fire.
I'm followed the instructions, made sure the sound was on, etc. but still no sound! The other Apps in the bundle work fine, would be nice to use this one too! Please find the problem and do an update so we can enjoy this app!
