Once was a great app
Why would you delete my kids favorite feature? Being able to post their own movies to Toontastic's own movie site. And, being able to watch other children's movies from around the world. Now, it's just the same as a multitude of other apps. It's no longer special & something that my kids get excited about. Now they're just let down. Where did all of the great movies go that were posted over the lifetime of this app? Into the "we could care less about all of your child's hard work and creativity pile of trash?". I can imagine plenty of privacy or legal issues that might have prompted this abysmal managerial decision. But, I'm sure with some creativity, a better solution could have been discovered. It couldn't be any worse than this one.
On top of all of that disappointment, as if it makes up for the downgrade in the enjoyability of the app, it's now free! So, for all of you fools who purchased the option to pay more up front for all of the future updates to be included, Jokes on us! He, he he!.......Grrrrr!
Everyone and GAME DEVS please Read!
Everyone who is Sad that Toon Tube is gone and that the game is now Completely free. Please read this for Info and DEVS could read for Ways to improve the app. WHY TOON TUBE WAS DELETED: Oh toon tube! A place where kids could share and Watch cartoons! But, One day... Lots of BAD Cartoons were posted and Kids were not safe from these... One time I was checking some toons and saw one that might be good BUT, There was lots of Cuss in the Video and I was horrified to see that people were making such Videos! That is why they removed Toon Tube. For the safety of your kids! GAME IDEAS: Maybe you could add back Toon Tube but add a System that filter the Bad videos and does not post them! Maybe add more Paint Tools so Kids could paint their own scenes Easier! Thanks To whoever Read this review and found out why they Removed Toon Tube. And maybe they will add my ideas... Thanks for Reading! BTW: I love your App!
I purchased the full version with all packs when this app was new years ago for $20. Over the years, my kids have created dozens of cartoons that we have cherished and gone back to watch over and over. They have survived transfers between device upgrades and iOS updates and I never had any worry that they’d be gone. Now suddenly with this update, they have disappeared. Not only this, but they’ve removed ToonTube, the feature where kids could view cartoons made by other kids. This was easily half the enjoyment my kids got from this app. They loved watching cartoons made by other kids and would laugh for hours. I don’t understand the decision to erase old cartoons and remove ToonTube in order to make the app free. That’s great for people just getting into Toontastic for the first time, but gives us loyal customers who have fed this company money over the last several years the middle finger. Thanks a bunch, Launchpad. Will NEVER purchase another one of your apps again.
