Great Storyteller, awful app

My daughter begged for this app and I paid for it and several stories at .99 each, but if she doesn't listen to them for a few nights, we have to 'update' each story and most times it does not download. She gets frustrated and ends up just listening to the free stories on the podcast. I'm not sure why I am paying for an app, THEN a buck each story only to be able to hear them a couple of times each. I wrote to the developer; will update my rating if it improves. I've had this app through iPhone 4s, 5c, and 6 and have had the same problem.

Great stories terrible app

I've owned this app for several years. It's a nightly occurrence for our daughter as she is falling asleep. Alan is a fabulous storyteller! Lovely voice! The problem we have is that the app is terrible in terms of reliability. I've bought several stories which require them to be uploaded each time we try to listen. The problem is that they will not upload no matter how long we wait. Very sad to us :( I hope they will fix it soon!

Yeah!! Love it!

I don't know what arthurian34 was talking about. I babysit 8 kids and they love it. It's a life saver because they fall asleep right away! and since there's no illustrations, they get to use their brains even more and also learn how to do critical thinking. I love it!!! love it!! Love it!! I'll definitely recommend it.
